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. ®
