Losing my religion - NES style

Remember the original Nintendo Entertainment System (mid 80's) and the bloopy bleepy electronic soundtrack it gave to the games of the time. A group of musical geeks from have sampled and synthesized the sound of the NES and used it to create covers of a bunch of popular tunes - including R.E.M's Losing my religion which is the one I'll be playing on the show today.

The full tracklisting is:
01 REM - Losing My Religion
02 Europe - Final Countdown
03 Radiohead - Karma Police
04 Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
05 Survivor - Eye of the Tiger
06 Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven
07 Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama
08 Led Zeppelin - Kashmir
09 Slayer - Angel of Death
10 David Pomeranz - Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now
11 Coldplay - Yellow
12 Rick James - Superfreak
13 Semisonic - Closing Time
14 (Silence)
15 Hidden NESmix Intro
16 Zero Wing (Opening Theme) (4x4 Remix)
17 Tetris (Music A) (Piano Practice)

You can download the lot as MP3 files from Something awful at

(I might just add that this does tend to grate after a while)
