A wonderful find today via the Something Awful forums [Request guitar songs for me to cover on... NES?!?] but discovered through Joystiq
A Something Awful forum user has put together a package of 16 remakes of popular songs synthesized using an NES’s audio system.
The original SA forum post has some other tracks available but this NEScover CD is such a great mix.
- REM - Losing My Religion
- Europe - Final Countdown
- Radiohead - Karma Police
- Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
- Survivor - Eye of the Tiger
- Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven
- Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama
- Led Zeppelin - Kashmir
- Slayer - Angel of Death
- David Pomeranz - Nothing’s Gonna Stop Me Now
- Coldplay - Yellow
- Rick James - Superfreak
- Semisonic - Closing Time
- Hidden NESmix Intro
- Zero Wing (Opening Theme) (4x4 Remix)
- Tetris (Music A) (Piano Practice Remix) (Hidden Track)
UPDATE 11/13/2006: The original links to the entire collection no longer work (surprise, surprise). However, if you would like to listen to the whole collection please let me know and I'll see what arrangements can be made.
UPDATE 11/25/2006: What Waht?! I may have spoken too soon. I have no idea what I did with this album. I fear that I may have DL it at work and I know now that it is not there any more. My hunt begins!
UPDATE 11/25/2006: (10 minutes later) Funk that! I did some "super-sleuting" and the very first results was this. Here you'll find NEScover.rar and NEScover.zip - badass! This file is now safely tucked away in case it disappears from the Internets again. Remember, you can always contact me if you need it.
UPDATE 3/13/2007: We knew it couldn't last forever. It looks like the files have been removed. However, I do know how you can get your grubby hands on it so send me a message if you're interested.
UPDATE 9/29/2009: It's BAAAAACCCKKK! Looks like you can get the RAR file from here. Also looks like it's been there since 2/27/2008 - who knew?
