Marco Wachter Naming only one Track as my favourite isn't enough. Back in Time, Emulate the Past, Forever Gamer, Farscape, Back in a Day, Jack Sparrow, Resident Evil & The Old Republic are fantastic tracks too. Especially for fans of C64 / A500 Sound a absolute Must-Have! Favorite track: Fragger.

SkyMarshall Arts Norway

SkyMarshall Arts is a Norwegian electronic dance music group established by Eirik Blodøks Hafskjold in 1995. Though several other people are listed in the credits from time to time, SkyMarshall Arts is technically a one-man show. His trademark of sorts has become melodic vocal remixes of classic game-music from the old systems like the Amiga, Commodore or the Nintendo - and tv-shows. ... more

Track Name: Back in Time
"MTV's decades is sponsered in part by the Amiga computer from commodore
and by the Nintendo entertainment system"

Hey listen!

It all began back in '85,
wasting hours waiting on my 1541-drive.
Playing Syndicate on my Commodore 64
Everything was better before...

The years went by and in '89,
I got me an Amiga from the 500-line,
8-bit tracker fan and it all begam with Turrican
and Octalyzer made me a..... Music-man!

Here we go again! The time has come for more!
Once again we ramble on about that everything was better before!
Playing Monty on my Commodore!
When the games were in their prime!

Let me take you back in time! x2

Hey listen!

In '94 came the psONE!
Once again an epic journey in my time begun!
Gaming every day in the atmosphere of Metal Gear
and Silent Hill was absolute..... FEAR!

The next year came the N64,
they just don't make'em like those on it any more!
Legendary games out of Tokyo - like Mario
and every other hero should shrink... Compared to Link!

Here we go again! The time has come for more!
Once again we ramble on about that everything was better before!
Playing Monty on my Commodore!
When the games were in their prime!
Let me take you back in time! x2
Track Name: Alpha Centauri
At the end of days, at the end of time.
When the sun burns out, will any of this matter?
Who will be there to remember who we were?
Who will be there to know that any of this had meaning to us?

And in retrospect, I'll say we've done no harm.
Who are we to judge what's right and what has purpose for us?
With designs upon ourselves to do no wrong.
Running wild, unaware of what might come of us.

Without a though I will see anything eternal.
Forget that once we were just dust from heavens far.
As we were forged we shall return, perhaps someday.
I will remember us and wonder who we were.
Track Name: Emulate the Past
This one is for all of those people who still want more,
Of all the great tunes sung by the Commodore.
And feel the world is moving just a tad too fast.

We feel nostalgic about these songs
Because it reminds us of a time that we have lost.
And now we're keeping it alive while having a blast.
Emulating the past.
Track Name: Turrican
Once there was a time.
A time when games had soul, games had character.

It was all about graphics, it wasn't all about capitalism.
It was about experimenting. It was about fun and learning.

All we have left now are the nostalgia, of the times we all loved.
But we all remember the music.

And the music - was the force in'em all.
Track Name: Forever Gamer
I remember a time that I was sitting alone.
And playing my Amiga at home.
Gaming Maniac Mansion and Lotus Turbo,
And U.F.O Enemy Unknown.
Sitting on my ass - doing nothing at all.
But managing in Ports of Call.
No chance in hell I would ever ever get bored of;
Killing NVA in Dogs of War.

Yeah, I'm a gamer forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my lads 'til I die.
I'm gaming forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my ladies 'til I die.

Yeah, I'm a gamer forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my lads 'til die.
A gamer forever,
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my friends 'til I die.
Yeah, I'm a gamer forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my lads 'til I die.
I'm gaming forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my ladies 'til I die.

On a trip across the cosmos
Toward the edge of our known universe.

Tichondrius:
The Cult is nearly assembled.

Arthas:
Lordaeron lies in ashes. What good are these cultists to us now?

Tichondrius:
They will aid you in your next undertaking.

Arthas:
And what's that?

Tichondrius:
You will go to Andorhal and recover the remains of
the acolytes' former master, the necromancer, Kel'Thuzad.

Rifleman:
Locked and loaded!

Track Name: Back in the Day
Back in the day, when everybody paid
to hear Alban, Dj Bobo and Haddaway,
rap about their shit.
What the hell was it about?
It didn't mean squat to them and even less to us.
But everybody dug it, we had no shame.
We partied to this euro-trash time and again.
Got their records, bought them all just to be part of the game.
Got the genre up to heights of glory and fame.

Nowadays everybody still pays
to hear the same kinda crap in all new fancy kinda ways.
Doesn't matter who's the maker,
it just has to sound great.
Our generation doesnt have the time to sit and wait.
We dig Milk Inc., Cascada, Cosmic Gate and Pulsedriver,
Dj Jean, Tiesto, Groove Coverage and Clubdriver.
The kick has to be hard, and the chorus-line fat.
That makes us happy. It doesn't take more than that.

Back in the day,
when everything was great and we had it our way.
From party to party, drinking our ass off.
Barfing in ditches, an occasional suck-off.
I really wonder where those times have gone,
back when all was fun and not a single thing wrong.
I remember how it was, back in the days.
I remember how it was, back in the day.

I remember how it was, back in the day.

Go west - Life is peaceful there.
Go west - Lots of open air
Go west - To begin life new
Go west - This is what we'll do
Go west - Sun in winter-time
Go west - We will do just fine
Go west - Where the skies are blue
Go west - This and more we'll do

Track Name: Doom
In the year 2026,
archeologist working in the Nevada desert,
discovered a portal to an ancient city on Mars.
They called this portal 'The Arc'.

20 years later,
we are still struggling to understand why it was built,
and what happened to the civilization that built it
Track Name: Fragger
We are gamers to the bone we are.
Frag and kill is what we do.

We belong to the future, the next generation.
Doing what we gamers were born to do.

And that is to play until you go insane.
And to blast your ass to hell.
Track Name: HalfLife
Time Dr. Freeman?
Is it really that time again.

Rather than offer you the illusion of free choice,
I will take the liberty of choosing for you.
If and when your time comes around again.

I trust it will all make sense to you in the course of ...
well .. I'm really not at liberty to say!
In the meantime, this is where I get off.
Track Name: Jack Sparrow
There's a man of
Which we're fans of
Out there sailing around the world.
He's a pirate
Always wasted
And the captain of the Pearl.

His vocabulary's extraordinary.
Pirate linguist is quite superfluous, really
Go, YO-HO
A pirates life for me.

There's a man of
Which we're fans of
Out there sailing around the world.
He's a pirate
Always wasted
And the captain of the Pearl.

He's a bastard
He's a liar
And he's plastered.
Drink up, me hearties - yo-ho
And a Pirates life for me.

Rise my friend.
This day has seen the end of the last Jedi Knight.

It is all as I have foreseen.

The probe droid has pinpointed what we believe to be
a dense asteroid field with a heavy layered defense.
Track Name: Eclipse
Cause today we'll catch a glimpse of eternity.
As the world stands perfectly still - just for a moment.
For the very first time, and it is meant to be.
Yeah, we'll forget about ourselves - and share the moment.

But today we'll catch a glimpse of eternity.
As the world stands still - for a moment.
And I guess we'll all be making history.
As we all join hands - just to watch the sky.

For the very first time, and it is meant to be.
Yeah, we'll forget about ourselves - and share the moment.
And I guess we'll all be making history.
As we all join hands - just to watch the sky
