I know the 8-bit craze is nothing new, but I just discovered several videos of Muse’s songs that have been converted into this format. Needless to say, I have been watching/listening the videos a lot since yesterday. (I am sure you know how much fun it can be to play around with music.)
Muse may not be every geek’s choice when it comes to music, but this one has a thing for Matthew Bellamy and his gang. One, he does have a British accent (yeah, some are suckers for that). Two, he is not bad looking at all (ask Kate Hudson). Three, he is a musical genius! (Maybe I should have listed that first…)
So anyway, a friend posted an 8-bit music video of Muse’s Uprising, and I had so much fun listening to it. Never mind that the magical voice of Bellamy is gone or that the “real” instruments cannot be heard – listening to the melody and being transported back to many many summers ago is so worth it.
Non-Muse fans may just give me a blank stare, but I am taking the chance that are some Muse fans on FG. Here’s that video.
Here’s another song – I think my current favorite: Super Massive Blackhole.
If you want to know more about Muse, you can visit their official web site. (I strongly suggest that you do if you want to listen to awesome music.)
Now what about other songs that you might want to hear in 8-bit? Do a quick search on YouTube – you’ll find lots. From what I have read, I think you can DIY. Does anyone know how to do this exactly? (For those times when you feel like tearing your hair out because of boredom…)
