Let Me Be Myself

May 27th, 2010 by Sean

While poking around on my computer and listening to my Apple iPod using the shuffle feature playing random songs from my 4,000+ song collection, something happened…

Bam! Who knew that the Geico Caveman theme song was done by 3 Doors Down?

I didn’t until it started playing and I looked at the screen on my iPod… hehe… check out the actual TV commercial:

“Let Me Be Myself” by 3 Doors Down. I like this song, but never put two and two together. Side note, Liberian Girl by Michael Jackson is now playing. So random I tell you.

The Dark Side Of The NES

March 30th, 2010 by Sean

Have you ever wondered what Dark Side of the Moon would sound like if Pink Floyd had written it for the Nintendo NES?

Thanks to the hard work of Canadian Brad Smith, he’s remixed the entire album in 8-bit Nintendo glory:

Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon is an all-time rock classic, but that’s provided you’re listening to it on a record or CD, until now.

For those wondering, it’s available for download from the MOON8 project site.

Rush Coil – 8-bit Christmas

December 5th, 2009 by Sean

Not only am I a fan of video games, I’m also a huge fan of video game music. All anyone has to do is take a look at my Apple iPod to see that.

Now that the holidays are upon us it’s only appropriate to have some video game themed Christmas music to rock around the Christmas tree.

This album 100% inspired by games. It’s Rush Coil’s “8-bit Christmas”:

8-Bit Christmas

There are 12 tracks in all on the album. You can sample them at the official web page and it’s also available to purchase for $4.00 USD.

If you use last.fm, be sure to check out the Rush Coil last.fm page too.
