8-bit remixes steal my heart.

Every now and then at work, or in the library, I feel like I need something that can't be found on my ipod to satisfy my musical hunger.

As I've stated before I've sort of become reacquainted with Retro gaming (thanks RFGO!!!) and something that I hold dear to me is the sweet sounds of insignificant and limited hardware... Weird? Well there is a whole culture surrounding chip tunes and what not (as you probably know) and I find it fascinating!

I'm not involved in this scene at all, but I'll listen because I like it! Does that make a poser? Oh well. Keep giving me music, I'm a consumer.

So I've come across some really awesome stuff on youTube;

Oasis' 'Wonderwall'

AVGN Theme(There are many variations of this, wasn't able to find my favourite.)

Chocolate Rain (A classic remix even if the original meme annoys the hell out of you)

Rihanna's "Umbrella" (Ya, I know but it sounds so awesome in 8bit!)
I'm not going to post every video but you should get the idea. There are a ton out there too, take a look! Maybe I'll start a thread in the forum about this so we can all share what we find (I've only looked on youtube...)

Similarly I've been equally impressed/obsessed with Mario Paint covers. Seriously...Listen.

Roxbury fans?

Some use a PC program called "Mario Paint Composer" which is much more robust than the SNES game, sort of cheating- still sounds incredible. There are a lot of these so good luck and Enjoy!

Hey Dtoid. Welcome to perritoid!

I'm a 23 year old artist/teacher. While in University I experimented mostly with Animation, Video, and Games.

The lovely [dearly departed] Anthony Burch* featured the fruits of my experimentation here on Destructoid as part of the Indie Nation Series Which probably is one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me! One of many reasons why I love Destructoid.

*The [formerly] Resident Person Named Anthony Who Isn't Anthony Perri.

My first console was the SNES. It remains my favourite, and I've been playing games ever since without pause. Recently I've been a little burned out on the modern sensibilities of a suddenly overwhelmingly Western market. Most of the HD games don't appeal to me.

I currently live in Korea where I teach english and avoid Starcraft [and the north].
