The Best Retro Album in the World, EVER! Part 1

Post by kaiserspike » Wed Jun 22, 2011 8:03 am

Songs with a Retro Gamer Flavour!

Frank Black - Whatever Happened to Pong?
Blur - Theme from Retro
Game Over - Tinchy Strider
Crystal Castles - 1991
Final Fantasy - Adventure.exe
Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
Chris Isaac - Wicked Game
Ludacris – Press the Start Button
Atari Teenage Riot - Digital Hardcore

Well 9 songs hardly constitutes an album, anyone else got any?
