Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #300 - Puck Mann


Featuring Pac Man and early 20th century tango music.

greetings fellow game music lovers,

300 entries it is! Hooray! Almost 4 years, I cannot believe how fast the time flies... Anyways, for the celebration of this even we obviously need something extravagant. And an obvious choice for this would be one of the true classics of video games: Pac Man, the original maze game from 1980! Funny to think Pac Man wasn't really gone all the time.

José Fuster - "Cata" (before 1928):

A less complete sample can also be found in Agustín Bardis "Tinta Verde" form the 1930s:

Still need to get some stuff out before the obligatory Final Fantasy series starts...

Phil out!
