I’ve been working on this project for quite a while and it’s ready to see the daylight now…
It’s my personal music Top 50 from the Nintendo Entertainment System! I know there are a lot of debates on which song is the best NES song of all time, etc, but I wanted to make a Grand Tribute to the Golden NES era.
All compositions are originally from the late 80’s / early 90’s and are performed in a new way, with real drums and acoustic instruments, combined with the classic chiptune sounds we all love.
I hope this will be an album that you will enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed making it. Just something you can put on your speakers or headphones anytime you feel like it: on happy saturday evenings, lazy sunday afternoons, going to work on tuesdays etc. It’s a humble tribute to the fantastic originals.
Volume 2, 3 and 4 will be added when they’re ready of course.
The tracklist of 8-Bit NES Top 50 Volume 1 is:
1. Duck Tales – The Moon theme
