The “Super Mario Bros theme”, officially known as the “Ground Theme” (地上 BGM, lit. “Aboveground BGM”), is a musical theme originally heard in the first stage of the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros. It was one of six themes composed for Super Mario Bros by acclaimed Mario and The Legend of Zelda series composer Koji Kondo, who found it to be the game’s most difficult track to compose.
