This is awesome. I didn't think it would be, but it is.

My favourite thing about this cover is that at the point where the lyrics should be "will nature make a man of me yet?", it plays the "Mario gets a mushroom and grows up" sound effect. There's some proper attention to detail for you.

This charming man is about a younger man being picked up by an older man, right?

Went in prepared to hate, left amazed and thoroughly amused. Wow!

The drum track for This Charming Man was sampled and sequenced, which seems impressive for 1984. I'm not sure why it was done; it's not like it's difficult to play.

If anybody wants to save a copy of the song, paste this into your address bar:

javascript:(function(b){var a=b.createElement("a");a.innerText="Download MP3";a.href="http://media.soundcloud.com/stream/"+b.querySelector("#main-content-inner img[class=waveform]").src.match(/.com\/(.+)_/)[1];a.download=b.querySelector("em").innerText+".mp3";b.querySelector(".primary").appendChild(a);a.style.marginLeft="10px";a.style.color="red";a.style.fontWeight=700})(document);

I feel like someone just shat all over my Smiths-listening, NES playing childhood here and it's not a nice feeling.

Comment on Soundcloud: "LOVE 6-bit sound!"

I wonder where his other 2 bits went.

I know it's only Tuesday, but I can't wait until Friday to post this. I am sorry. So very sorry.

Well then... good thing it's The Smiths instead.

It's like junior high and high school were poured into a chip tune blender.

Wonderful. This fucking rules, indeed.
