You know how big a fan I am of 80’s video game songs- so when I found out there was one I had never heard of- I had to put it up on the site! The Toons had many parody songs on Dr. Demento’ s show including this one! Check it out!!!!
Keep playin’ like it’s 1981!!!!
Oh….Sorry…..we haven’t done what in a while? A post?- A POST! IN 3 1/2 MONTHS? NO WAY!……..Sorry I have to go-
Hi gang! some one just informed me that we haven’t done a post in almost four months. so I thought I’d change that. And lets start by talking about one of the one of the greatest injustices in the golden age of arcades.
Pac Man Fever. Change Attendant. Ode to a Centipede. I Fell in Love at the Video Arcade. All arcade game theme songs. All great in their own right. But one song seems to be always overlooked. the one that was written ABOUT THE PLAYERS! And that song is “Space Age Whiz Kids” by Joe Walsh. Yes, that’s THE Joe Walsh (James Gang, Eagles, ETC) Check out the roster of video game great ones in this video (and yes that’s a WACKO machine behind Joe!)
This song is from the “You Bought It You Name It” album. So go out and find this album (or cd) you wont be disappointed! This is a great song for your arcade compilation!
