In what may be a rather obvious move, but hopefully entertaining nonetheless, I've parodied Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire", and made it about videogame history.
Now, everything's not totally in chronological order and of course there is a ton of stuff missing, but I think overall it came out pretty well. I'll tell you, it was a bitch to write and record. First getting all of these words to fit together correctly and then singing the damn thing. I wore out my voice several times before I was able to get the final take.
I only took it up through Super Mario Bros. 3 because frankly, I just couldn't write any more. I would love (read: LOVE) it if someone wanted to pick up where I left off and continue the song throughout the different console eras. It already clocks in at a radio friendly 3 minutes, but the original is actually more like 5, so we have some room.
What do you think? Are you up to the challenge? There's a lot of ground left to cover.
