Slow dance/trance-song in 130bpm created by Eirik Blodoks Hafskjold (Skymarshall Arts) and Lars Erling Bolstad (Xenomorph). It's about way back when gaming was magical, and pretty much all we did. Mainly on the Amiga and C64 and various following consoles. And now ofcourse PC.

I sequenced this 70% in FLStudio7 XXL, 20% in Cubase SX3 and 10% in Adobe Audition 1.5. Instruments used are too many to be named, but the main VST was reFX QuadraSID. Vocals where recorded by a RĂ˜DE NT-a1 through a Roland UA-4FX and given a little delay, flanger and chorus. Vocals and lyrics are by myself.

Lyrics are as follows:

Niiiiiintendo .... wohoooo!

I remember a time that I was sitting alone.
And playing my Amiga at home.
Gaming Maniac Mansion and Lotus Turbo,
and U.F.O Enemy Unknown.
Sitting on my ass - doing nothing at all.
But managing in Ports of Call.
No chance in hell I would ever ever get bored of;
killing NVA in Dogs of War.

Yeah, I'm a gamer forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my lads 'til I die.
I'm gaming forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my ladies 'til I die.

Superb!

A great piece of work you've produced here. I really enjoyed it from beginning to end. However maybe more lyrics could've been put with it, I mean this fits well as a theme song, but other than that it's a great song!

Righteous!

Yeah, this is probably one of the best tracks Ive heard in a long long time. Especially since its something many of us can relate to. Gaming isn't a hobby... Its a lifestyle...

Vintage always means Awesome

Honestly, I love chatting on and on about the days of old; cartridges, having to dust the system, trying 50 billion times just to get the game to work. Wearing grooves in my hands from the uncomfy controllers, burning out my eyes in front of the old boob-tube, jumping on turtles, shooting down ducks, cave-man-skull-bonking my way across 60 billion BC, all that.

All hail the classics! Its great to see such an awesome salute to the vintage gamers and games. *Salutes back*


SkyMarshall responds:

Salute ... and glad I woke up some memories in you :)
