Remember the Wii Shop Channel song? It’s still so good.

I could honestly add a dozen more tweets here. Every single one of these that I have listened to has been awesome. I highly encourage you to check out the #MiiChannelJam hashtag on Twitter and Moukala’s Twitter profile where he has been sharing a lot of great contributions.
