Weezer – Buddy Holly (nordloef Cover)

Before there was Weezer, there was Weeze, and before that, Elisha Cuthbert had an NES console.  At least, that’s how I’d start the music video for “The 8-bit Album.”

But don’t get your hopes up. This isn’t a Weezer album.  Well, it is, sort of.  It’s more like a this-is-what-Weezer-would-have-sounded-like-on-a-25-year-old-arcade-game album.  It’s experimental.  It’s childish.  It’s adding a happy hardcore remix to two genres that are already too far juxtaposed.

This was my 2nd-favorite track.  You’d never know from listening to it that it was released in 2009.  I was planning to upload the Bit Shifter cover last month instead, but I just didn’t like the choice of (original) lyrics in that one.  8-Bit is Creative Commons licensed.
