Kazumi Totaka is known for hiding this song as an easter egg in almost every game he composes for. X is first game where this starts. Other games that have the easter egg can be found here.
Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening — Totaka’s Song
This is the only Zelda song I’ll play tonight. I just wanted to show off another instance of Totaka’s Song. I think it’s really a silly little tune, but it’s interesting that Totaka puts it into almost every game he works on!
