10 Songs/Sounds From 8-Bit Nintendo Games That Will Be in Your Head the Rest of the Week

Punch Out

You see that’s what Nintendo was all about back in the good old days.  It wasn’t necessarily about the graphics.  It wasn’t about the amazing controls and “real life” similarities.  The 8-Bit Nintendo was all about the fun.  And part of that fun were the amazing theme songs and even sound effects that would stay with us for hours, even days after playing.

And I’m not even saying that all these songs are good.  I’m simply saying that after you hear them?  There’s absolutely no chance that they won’t be stuck in your head for at least a week.

Here are 10 songs that you’ll soon once again be addicted to

You know the sound.  It comes right after you make a kill.

Theme Song from Double Dragon

I wish there was a way to put the song into words.  However, I’m pretty sure you all recognize this theme.  And now it’s going to be in your head for the rest of the day.

So bouncy!

Fighting Music from Mike Tyson’s Punch Out

I’m so motivated now!

Legend of Zelda Overworld Theme

Anyone who doesn’t know this song leads a VERY sheltered life.

Super Mario Brothers Main Theme

You knew I was going to add this one.

Tetris Type A Theme

Rad Racer First Option Song

The second song option isn’t all the bad either but this one is highly addictive.

Castlevania Level One

Oh you’ll definitely know the part that will not get out of your head.  It’s very obvious.  Essentially it’s what the chorus would be in any main song.

Contra first level

Can they make a Contra movie please?

  1. [...] Some time ago we mentioned, in a listicle about obscure musical genres, our developing taste for Chiptune: music made with the primitive chips used in the first generation of videogame systems.

    Thanks for the free views on my Rad Racer video. And when I say “free views”, I mean the over 1,000 that have come my way from your article. Much obliged.
