Undertow circa 1985

I’ve detailed before (including in this previous blog entry) that I started writing music using a Commodore 64 when I was 11. The Commodore 64 was an 8-bit machine, and sounded like… well, first-generation Nintendo.
I also grew up obsessively playing games on that Commodore 64. So you can imagine how excited I was about this remix of Undertow, created by Logan Richey.

It joins earlier 8-bit versions of Asphalt Cocktail (arranged for Mario Paint):

and Aurora Awakes, also for Mario Paint:

Those are pretty true to the original, but Logan’s is a remix. OMGGGG I love it SO MUCH. Thank you, Logan! (And extra kudos to him for asking permission!)

This is up there with the metal band version of Xerxes.
