Listen to Radiohead Albums Re-imagined With 8-Bit Sound
Eight-bit video games like Super Mario Bros. and Tetris had pretty catchy and memorable soundtracks. But did you ever think what it would sound like if more traditional pieces of music -- say the classic Radiohead albums 'OK Computer' and 'Kid A' -- got the eight-bit audio treatment?
You probably didn't, and that is why YouTube user QuintonSung is more creative than you. The man with a self-described passion for video games and Radiohead combined the two for impressive re-imaginations of 'OK Computer' and 'Kid A' with eight-bit-like sounds. Check them out.
Here's a tip. If you put the video quality in HD it actually makes the audio clearer too. For 'OK Computer,' Sung goes the extra mile with annotations that allow you to skip to individual songs.
Good stuff, all around. We think Thom Yorke and the boys -- who have always embraced quirky, computer-like sounds -- would approve.
