So, it’s my birthday and I’ll Tap if I want to.
Disclaimer: “I can feel the epicness flowing through my balls” was a passionate and strangely disgusting phrase I read in the ever intelligble YouTube comments section of a Metroid Brinstar video I was listening to a few weeks ago (more on that another day). The comment made me laugh enough to earn itself the title for these posts which I hope will form part of a feature fishing out various vintage game tunes from the nostalgic and misty waters of our gaming past. No doubt most of them will be from YouTube because there are some pretty special covers and renditions of age-old classics on there that simply have to be heard, starting with this Django Reinhardt inspired version of the Super Mario Bros. 2 theme by Adrian Holovaty, respected coder, journalist and jazz musician. Blimey. This version will make your life better.
If you get a chance check out his remix of Radiohead’s Nude as well, it’s pure magic.
