Remember when I said that I’d be totally cool with JoJo’s related songs being remixed into console soundcard tracks, Game Boy Shine on You Crazy Diamond and things like that, because of that Sega Genesis Roundabout? Yeah, that’s apparently already a thing.
YouTube user and musical artist Megaane, who I am linking because you need to listen to their channel now, has already been making chiptune versions of JoJo’s related songs. Because I can’t just pick one, here’s the whole embedded playlist.
The 8-bit Smells Like Teen Spirit made me go look for a lighter.
Oh, but that’s not all. See, the JoJo’s thing is only fairly recent, but this guy’s been doing 8-bit mixes of all kinds of things, including this playlist of 164 giant robot themes. There’s a lot to sift through in there, including tons of Macross, like PLANET WAVES, lot of Gundam themes, and many favorite super robots. Now, that’s a big playlist, and I encourage you to click that link and go listen to them all, but here’s a few choice picks from me.
Sure Promise from The Big O
You Get to Burning from Martian Successor Nadesco
Theme of Combattler V
Tope! Duke Freed! from UFO Robo Grendizer
Flying in the Sky and Trust You Forever from G Gundam
And all the Getter Robo themes a man could want, including…
HEATS by Hironobu Kageyama from Getter Robo: Armageddon
I’m not going to lie. I might have to find and marry this guy. You can find his blog here.
