Silly Sunday! NES-fest

Whatever happened to Silly Sundays?

I got lame, that’s what. The reasons behind the sudden disappearance of the aforementioned feature isn’t through lack of material – on the contrary – there’s shit loads of stuff we could use. It’s the fact I chose a fucking Sunday to do a weekly post! LONG

Anyway, this week we have some bad boy 8-bit computer game tunage, all from games I used to own on the NES as a kid. Let the memories come a-flooding…

First up – the Mega Man 2 theme tune (not to be mistaken for Mega Man of So Solid Crew fame kids). Now that was a game… For those of you who weren’t fortunate enough to encounter a Mega Man game, it was basically some bionic dude wandering around shooting stuff. If I’m honest (which I am) I can’t actually remember much about it. Couldn’t you change colours and get different powers, like guns and saws and stuff? Please someone jog my memory – I would like to reminisce. The tune ‘drops’ big time around the 40 second mark. You need to hear it. 8-bit tear out music.

Next up – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – or I should say Teenage Mutant HERO Turtles, as it was called  here in the UK. Yes that’s right – the word ‘Ninja’ was banned because it was deemed too violent. How pathetic. Anyway – crap game, great tune. I defy you not to have it stuck in your head after listening to it.

Finally – The Legend of Zelda. Wow. Legendary game, legendary tune. This tune used to bring a tear to my eye.
