Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In-game music is cued by the time of day, with a random track being played at sunrise, sunset, noon and midnight.
  • Chirp uses the same accompaniment samples as "The Orb of Dreamers" from the LittleBigPlanet series. The samples come from the Optigan disc "Bossa Nova Style".[1] C418 stated that it was coincidental.[2]
  • "Calm 3", or "Sweden", is a Passacaglia, with a changing melody over a repeated bass line.
  • In Console Edition, the music disc "Cat" includes a second tune at the end, a remix titled "Dog", from Minecraft - Volume Alpha.
  • On April Fools' Day 2014, Mojang played a bunch of villager themed pranks on the players, including temporarily replacing the track "Hal 1", or "Subwoofer Lullaby", with a version that had a villager singing along, as well as temporarily replacing all the menu songs with the villagers singing the Game Of Thrones theme song.
