Retro Song Remix of the Day: Erasure – Always (8 Bit, Super Mario Bros remix)

1x1.trans Retro Song Remix of the Day: Erasure   Always (8 Bit, Super Mario Bros remix)

Always was surprisingly enough, my introduction to the UK electro pop band Erasure. What? you say, what about A Little Respect or Chains of Love or Sometimes? those tracks were chart topping dance floor popping doozies from the 80s. Well, my dear, I am a 90s child and Always was one of Erasure’s most popular tracks. I remember liking it in junior high and thinking ‘why am I liking this?’ because I typically listened to rap or grunge or Can rock (read: Moist/IME/OLP) at that time. Here’s why I liked it – it’s got an amazing hook, great harmonies and it’s great vocals by Andy Bell. The hook in this song is just magnificent – completely dramatic yet triumphant at the same time. How good is it, you ask? Two different people have made 8 bit/nintendo versions of the track. Check that out here
