Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon Done In 8-Bit

By Fidel Martinez



Ever wondered what Pink Floyd’s 1973 classic album Dark Side Of The Moon would sound like in 8-bit? Yeah, us too. Thanks to Brad Smith– a video game programmer from Burlington, Ontario– now you can. Smith took it upon himself to take the ten album tracks and use the 8-bit sounds of the standard North American Nintendo Entertainment System to create this music/video game masterpiece. Check out Smiths’ rendition of “Money”:

Pretty remarkable. And here’s “Us And Them”, one of our favorite Pink Floyd tracks of all time:

You can find the rest of the tracks on Smith’s YouTube page. He’s also made the album available for download on his site.
