Dark Side Of The Moon as played on a 1980's video game console!

Dark Side Of The Moon cover gets the 8-bit treatment.Brad Smith, a video game programmer from Burlington, Ontario, Canada, got the idea and made it a reality: Taking Pink Floyd's classic Dark Side Of The Moon from 1973 and playing it on the equivalent of a 1980's 8-bit NES (Nintendo Entertainment Systems) video game console.

The result? To appreciate it fully you should ideally be a fan of a) Deep Purple and b) vintage video game consoles. But we think you can agree that it is an impressive piece of work and that the end result works surprisingly well.
