New Song by One of the "Pac-man Fever" Guys

Postby pacman000 » January 18th, 2017, 11:34 am

You may remember Buckner & Garcia's early 80's album "Pac-Man Fever."

Jerry Buckner, 1/2 of the duo which made that album, has released a new song: "Old School Games." (Garcia died a few years ago. :cry: ) Here's the new song; he posted it on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEyeT7evqmE

Personally, I like the old album better.

Thanks - this topic inspired me to watch youtube videos of the old song and read up on the history of these two guys. I had heard the Pac-Man Fever song before, but didn't know much background on it. Watched the new video too. (I agree with you on preferring the old song over this new one. It's not the same without Garcia's voice either.)

After reading up on these guys, I realized that Pac-man Fever was released on a 1982 album with a collection of 8 songs about arcade video games ("Do the Donkey Kong", "Goin' Berzerk", etc.). I never knew that before. I have a small record collection, so I decided to hop on ebay and buy it on vinyl.
