“Have you ever wondered what Dark Side of the Moon would sound like if Pink Floyd had written it for NES, instead of for a rock band?” Vidgame programmer and musician Brad Smith did, so he created a chiptune version of the entire album. MOON8

For those of us who remember the early 70s and who played 8-bit games, this is amazing. I’m not sure how long these may stay up, what with all the copyright takedowns recently, but is genius to recreate Pink Floyd in this way.

I wonder what other 70s progressive tunes would be amenable – Yes – South Side of the Sky, Siberian Khatru, or Perpetual Change; Jethro Tull – Thick As A Brick, Cross-eyed Mary; ELP – Karn Evil 9; Genesis – The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, The Return of the Giant Hogweed; The Moody Blues – Tuesday Afternoon, The Story in Your Eyes; Procul Haram – Whiter Shade of Pale; Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody, Killer Queen; Rush – Working Man; Supertramp – Dreamer; Uriah Heep – Easy Livin’
