about

Well...
I'd just gotten Ejay, (shows you how old this track is) and was wondering what to do with it.
Round about the same time there was a piece of music that was hooked around the phrase, "All your base are belong to us", which had taken off a little and I thought I could improve on the idea.

I think I have... but obviously couldn't look to have the same impact!

Of course, AFTER I made this, I then found out that in 1988 something had already been done using Berzerk samples.

But honestly? I think mine is LOADS better!
(And uses loads more samples!)

(The 'original' got to number 1 in the UK!

What d'you think?)

So, this is Berzerk-The Video Game-The Musical!

(If you know the game, you'll hear three lives being lost! Also-See if you can name all of the games used in the outro! And catch my *reaction* to being killed... Anyone would think I frequented arcades too much as a child or something.....)

lyrics

Intruder Alert, Intruder Alert!
Intruder Alert, Intruder Alert!

Get The Humanoid!
Get The Humanoid!
Get The Humanoid!
Kill the intruder!

Chicken!

Kill The Humanoid!
Kill The Intruder!
Kill The Humanoid!
Kill The Intruder!

Chicken!
Get It!

The Intruder Must Not Escape!
The Intruder Must Not Escape!
The Intruder Must Not Escape!
The Intruder Must Not Escape!

Chicken!
Charge It!

Humanoid - Detected.
Humanoid - Charge it.
Humanoid - Detected.
Chicken - Get It!

The Intruder Must Not Escape!

Kill The Chicken! Kill The Humanoid!
Kill The Chicken! Kill The Intruder!
Kill The Chicken! Kill The Humanoid!
Kill The Chicken! Kill The Intruder!

Get It!

Got The Humanoid!
Got The Intruder!

("Awwhh for.......")
