acornelectron The new track from one of my favourite bands of all time, and this new piece does not disappoint!

True to form, the British IBM deliver a tune that appeals to the nostalgia in us and feeds a retrogaming addiction!

nice work, as always :-)

lyrics

It’s been nearly 32 years since I first saw your title screen
And even though I never got that far
I’d lay awake most every night and think about the rooms ahead
Where everything just seemed to get so hard

I never got this close before
I never got this near
To completing Jet Set Willy
So go get me another beer

I blew the dust from my cassette, I even fixed the attic bug
That screwed me over all those years ago
I played it on my BBC I never liked those rubber keys
But everyone’s a critic I suppose

I never got this close before
I never got this near
To completing Jet Set Willy
So go get me another beer

I’m not using emulation, I’m using the real thing
No save state, no pausing, no waiting for God
I’m not using a walkthrough it’s all intuition
No youtube, no forums, no scanning through blogs

I never got this close before
I never got this near
To completing Jet Set Willy
So go get me another beer
