Yes! Finally managed to finish another song. This one will start off my new album, also named "Back in Time". And since it will be about games, gaming and everything related - this song kind of sets the theme for whats to come. Pretty much sums up my entire gaming career in about 4 minutes. Enjoy it or hate it ... here it is nevertheless:)

The Lyrics:

It all began back in '85.
Wasting hours waiting on my 1541 Drive
Playing Syndicate on my Commodore 64.
Everything was better before.

The years went by, and in '89.
I got me an Amiga from the 500-line.
8-bit tracker fan
and it all began - with Turrican.
Octalyzer made me a - music man!

Here we go again. The time has come for more.
Once again we ramble on about that everything was better before.
Playing Monty on my Commodore. When the games were in their prime.
Let me take you back in time.

In '94 came the PSOne.
Once again an epic journey in my time begun.
Gaming everyday in the atmosphere, of Metal Gear.
And Silent Hill was absolute ... fear!

The next year came the N64.
They just dont make'em like those on it anymore.
Legendary games out of Tokyo, like Mario.
And every other hero should shrink ... compared to Link.

Here we go again. The time has come for more.
Once again we ramble on about that everything was better before.
Playing Monty on my Commodore. When the games were in their prime.
Let me take you back in time.

i haz been listening to this song for a year now, awsome, and i wish that you would do moa stuffz like dis, mah top 5 fav song,

Back in my day...

Games ruled my life... and they still do!

The Atari, Nintendo, SNES, SegaGenesis/CD, N64, PS1, Dreamcast, GameCube, PS2/3, are all my favorite unclesto spend time with... and the Xbox & 360 are the creepy aunts that pinch the hell out of your cheeks (not the ones on your face), but still give you good present for Christmas... LOL!

Hey! ... Listen!

Awesome sound and perfectly matching vocals. Plus the lyrics are not just some random catchphrase but they tell a whole story that makes every old school gamer remember the good old times.

12 out of 10 stars!

i dont think i have EVER....

been so blown away by a song on newgrounds... i am just plain astounded! you made a sound that to many, sadly believe is dated, you have taken this sound and made it your own. on top of everything, the lyrics, oh my sweet god... your voice couldn't fit this style of music any better!!!

I bow down to you man! the nostalgia is killing me xD

Wonderful

You made me remember old times, ancient. Thanks.
