    This morning a girl at work played a new N'Sync song with samples from Pac-Man. I instantly tuned it out and suddendly remembered a song I hadn't heard in probably 15 years, Pac-Man Fever. I couldn't remember the title of the song at the time, but after a quick investigation on the web I found this site: http://www.bucknergarcia.com/ Check out the jukebox section for samples of this song and others, including Froggy's Lament.
    I think the first tape I ever owned was a mixed tape with these two songs on it. I found it amazing that I could still remember some of the lyrics and music to songs that I hadn't heard in such a long time. I was seven and this was a tape that I listened to endlessly, a tape that helped grow my appreciation in music. I think it's hilarious that one of the reasons I love music so much today is because of the song Pac-Man Fever. I'm now wondering what other songs were on that tape. (I think "I love Rock N Roll" was one of them.) I wish I could find it.
    For some reason I just had to share this with all you. Do you guys remember Pac-Man Fever? What (possibly strange) songs influenced your love of music?

    I remember that song. I had the Pac-Man Fever album at one point. I don't know what became of it. I probably chunked it during my adolescent phase.
    I'd love to have it on CD. They had that Frogger song, along with songs about Centipede and Berserk. None of them classics by any means, but I'd love to have them just for nostalgic value.

    I have that record- picked it up at a record shop for $.25 back in the early 90's
    Maybe If I get a minute I'll post a scan, just for the memories...
