about

{TCE-020}

Xoc covers video game tunes in the style of other artists.

The EMULATOR series was originally known under its working title, V.G.M.I.T.S.O. (Video Game Music In The Style Of, and pronounced "vee-gee-MIT-soh") when most of these tracks appeared on a limited edition CDR entitled "MAGFEST 7 MIX" - which, as the name suggests, was only available from me (Xoc) personally at MAGFest 7. [http://vgmdb.net/album/13293]

These earliest EMULATOR demos are the first collection in a long-running series. (That's the plan, anyway - there are something like 82 'style parodies' in the works.)

Track Name: Castlevania (in the style of Primus)
CASTLEVANIA - STAGE 1 [in the style of PRIMUS]

Simon had himself a big whip
Damn near six feet long
Only had so many hearts and lives,
but those pork chops kept him strong
Simon up in Transylvania
Lookin' for a vampire fight
With a dagger and a watch and an axe and a cross,
he said, "What a horrible night"

Mermen are leaping and bones reassembling
Eagles drop hunchbacks
They're jumping all over me
Ahhhhhh
Track Name: Dig Dug (in the style of Melt-Banana)
DIG DUG [in the style of MELT-BANANA]

Dig dig dig dug / dig dig dig
Dig dig dig dug / dig dig dig
Blowin' up a tomato

Dig dig dig dug / dig dig dig
Dig dig dig dug / dig dig dig
Dragon's under the ground

Dig dig dig dug / dig dig dig
Dig dig dig dug / dig dig dig
Goggle on the tomato

Dig dig dig dug / dig dig dig
Dig dig dig dug / dig dig dig
Chasing you with my pump

Dig dug dug dig dug / DIG DUG
Track Name: Moon Patrol (in the style of Jimi Hendrix)
MOON PATROL [in the style of JIMI HENDRIX]

Six wheels across the land
Jump the crater in the sand
Shoot straight, up and out
Don't know what it's all about
Jumpin' over rollin' rock
Rock 'n' Roll, I'm on the moon patrol

UFOs are bombin' me
Why don't they just let me be
I'll be drivin' 'cross the moon
From A to B now, gonna get there soon
Lunar rover, shootin' rock
Rock 'n' Roll, I'm on the moon patrol
Track Name: Maniac Mansion - Razor's Theme (in the style of Nirvana)
MANIAC MANSION - RAZOR'S THEME [in the style of NIRVANA]

No no never never
Well maybe
No no never never
Sure OK
Track Name: Marble Madness (in the style of Beck)
MARBLE MADNESS - PRACTICE RACE [in the style of BECK]

As the marbles come down through the puddles below
I got acid on my brain and an order to go
And I'm rollin up the hill with a bucket of sauce
And a spray paint can just to give em the gloss
There's a yellow rubber hammer that's blockin the road
There's a big black ball that's about to explode
Kentucky fried grease all over my face
I got something to eat and then I flew into space

I got a can of beer that's glued to my hand
And the phone machine is filled up with sand
I shattered into pieces with a foot in the tomb
And I got swept up by a magical broom
Big green slinkys all over the place
They jump on my skull and they get on my case
Everything that you know is wrong
Set the coupons on fire
And tune the banjo with the pliers

Mármol locura la práctica raza
Track Name: Tecmo Bowl (in the style of T. Rex)
TECMO BOWL - TITLE SCREEN [in the style of T.REX]

Well, I'm a Tecmo Bowl
Baby, I love your cup
Filled with the football stars
and your gridiron soul
Angels are throwing up
the sun the moon and stars

Well, I'm a pigskin priest
Baby, I love your name
stitched on your golden back
and your velvet beast aeroplane passing game
Girl, I'm a blitz attack

And I'm strange
Baby, I got the sideburn rainbows
You, you've got the same thing too

And why is it hard
To kiss you under your face guard
You run me over with your car
Your offensive line
It looks sweet and dirty fine

I'm assistant coach of the cosmos
I'm dancing up through the goalpost
Electric guitars
They touchdown up on Mars
Track Name: Paperboy (in the style of Frank Zappa)
PAPERBOY [in the style of FRANK ZAPPA & THE MOTHERS]

Disguised as a likeable juvenile delinquent,
risking his life for the public's right to be informed,
and unmatched in his grim determination to deliver the news,
Paperboy journeys through a world of incredible danger,
doing daily battle with the forces of darkness and evil,
riding the sidewalks of this land delivering... papers.
Track Name: Elevator Action (in the style of Talking Heads)
ELEVATOR ACTION [in the style of TALKING HEADS]

I appear on a building way downtown
Elevators to take me up and down
Making all my decisions on the run
Everybody is carrying a gun

Ce immeuble est comme chaque autre immeuble
D'ascenseur!
j'aime ce bâtiment
AYE YI YI YI YI

Finding secrets behind unopened doors
Investigating the building's 30 floors
There's a parking lot I've got to reach
I've got a car that's waiting there for me
Track Name: Chubby Cherub (in the style of the Ramones)
CHUBBY CHERUB [in the style of the RAMONES]

Chubby is a rocker now
Floatin' through the little town
Cherub with a pair of wings
Opens up his mouth to sing
And he said, "Oh I don't know why, why it isn't hard to die"
Oh oh I'm singin the tune of Chubby Cherub in the sky
Track Name: Super Dodgeball - London (in the style of the Beatles)
SUPER DODGE BALL - LONDON [in the style of THE BEATLES]

Ev'ry single night I just want to kiss you
When I can fin'lly get home
Ev'ry single day I try not to miss you
Give me a call on the phone

Give a call
And let me know you'll hold my hand
In dodge ball
I'll be down in the sand, crying instead

Ev'ry time I try to give all my love, girl
Promise I'll always be true
I find that I've been hit in the face, girl
Hit with a ball, black and blue

If I fall
Deeply in love with you girl
That's not all
I would bring you the world... cup if I could
Girl
