On Monday night comedian and writer Mike Drucker took to Twitter to ask about everyone’s favorite video game music. The question sparked a memory from deep in my youth and I immediately responded. RoboCop for the Nintendo Gameboy, Mr. Drucker.
I didn’t realize until listening again just how sad and beautiful this particular piece of video game music was. It turns out the song has a bit of internet history as well — apparently a well-known Dilbert parody featured a cover of the track, and eventually Lil B The BasedGod sampled it for his mixtape White Flame. Weird! Seriously though this song is gorgeous and you should listen to it and cry.
