Fans of Bubble Bobble, VGM, and yes, Laser Time: Stop what you’re doing and press PLAY
For those of you wondering what closed out this week’s Japan-soaked episode of Laser Time, look no further. The song you’re looking for is called “Bubble Dragon” by the band 7bit Hero and it’s one of my favorite personal favorite ANYTHINGZ of 2014. Yes, yes, we’ve all heard somebody add lyrics to an 8bit game song, and/or write an clever VG parody to a more modern tune, but this… I don’t even know how to describe this… A sincere, modern jam made about an 8-bit game, although not necessarily made with it? Shit, I’m flailing…
Thank Bub and Bob there’s a video:
The video, while jarringly heavy-handed towards the end, is a fucking wondrous sight for those of us who grew up traversing 100+ of candy-colored monster mazes (even if your personal edition of the latter chorus started with an “N.”) I want to play Taito everything right now. Obviously, the song itself… it’s like if a blowjob kicked me in the nuts: Orgasmic, gut-wrenching pleasure. See this is why I don’t right about music, I’ll shut up now. You should be watching and not reading anyway… More 7Bit Hero glory here.
