That's the one I bravely attempted to post a picture of.
It was Webber's Really Useful Company that co-produced the Dr Spin effort, don't think the man himself was involved...
He's the only person with a credit on the sleeve of the cd single.

Were Buckner & Garcia just an American thing? Its referenced so often, yet I have zero recollection of it in the 80's, only discovering it a few years ago when I got online.

Wait til you hear the lyrics...

Its really cheesy stuff that only America could produce. You'll find most of them online, YouTube is probably a good bet.

Somewhere there's a whole album of some bloke talking (yes, just talking) about how to get the best scores on "popular video games". I've got one track, for Defender. I'd love to know what the censored it is. THEN I WOULD REMIX IT AND MAKE MILLIONS MUAHAHAHAHAA, or possibly just improve my gameplay slightly...

I've got millions of game tune remixes, including a few good F-Zero ones, Alex Kidd, R-Type, Star Control 2 (which came on the RG cover disc), and of course the Instant Remedy ones. I'm particularly keen on the OutRun one.

Also, anyone who has Baku Baku Animal for the Saturn has a dance remix thingy on that too. Select the last track on a CD player to hear it. It's funny :)

I have the dodgy Dr Spin - Tetris tune, the Super Mario dance remix you're going on about and I also have a lovely Street Fighter 2 Soundtrack CD that was given away with Nintendo Magazine System (NMS) magazine - I also have the SF2 Player's Guide Video as well (not that I'm an SF2 geek or anything)

i'm pretty sure putting a simple and repetitive dance beat underneath retro game tunes tends to cheapen them...i much more a fan of metal versions of classic game tunes...or completely new songs written on the original hardware (a geeky and time consuming hobby if ever there was one) ;) x

[quote="sleeper77"]Pacman Powerpill Remix by Aphex Twin, 1992.quote]

It was credited as Powepill, not as Aphex Twin, but it's the same bloke. Actualy, he's used quite a few retro games stuff on his work. Best one is Carn Marth, where he uses the loading tape sound from Sabre Wulf.

The Timbaland stuff though is criminal. Can't be bothered to write his own stuff, so he nicks other people's demo tracks and puts a standard drum machine loop over it! Fat lazy git.
