Pink Floyd remastered for Nintendo Entertainment System
Dark Side of the 8-bit Moon
A video games programmer has rather boldly taken Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon and remastered it as a Nintendo Entertainment System extravanganza, with surprisingly plausible results.
The entire 8-bit playlist - created by Brad Smith using Famitracker and rendered with NSFplug - can be found down at YouTube. One impressed commenter was moved to declare the whole thing the "nerdiest and most awesome thing I've experienced in a long time".
Rather less nerdy, but equally awesome, is the Easy Star All-Stars' Dub Side of the Moon - described as "a stunning reinvention of this beloved record". Check out their version of Time, and prepare to be stunned, or something. ®
...Rush's 2112 next?
Also up there with the greatness that is http://www.easylife.org/386dx/
Now, we need a playthrough of a "The Wizard Of Oz" game to go with it. Perhaps the SNES game, or even better, the text based adventure game...
Brings back fantastic memories
After initially thinking WTF, i listened to all 6 parts - and i admit that i had a tear or two in my eye. Awesome!
Now checking out the various links to see if i can buy this - so much for the DRM-tards who think that the Internet is killing music.
No way, Dub Side of the Moon wins hands down. :p
Heh, happy easter.
