(A2Z) Pass the Quarters

Prince, Panic! At the Disco, Phil Collins, Pink… Paradise by the Dashboard Light, Papa Was a Rolling Stone, Paint it Black, Photograph… Parody, piano, percussion, polka… pick your poison.

More about my reckless (?) youth.  I still recall the first “video game system” we ever got.  It was pong, and just pong as far as I remember.  (relax… I will get to the music eventually)  Then came the Atari 2600.  I think the first game we had was Combat (or Tank).  Then came Pole Position, Space Invaders, and Surround.  My favorite game we got though was Pacman.  I became the top scorer in the house and in an arcade or two in town I would top the score lists for a while.

By this time I was hooked on video games.  My friend and I adopted the staff from one of the arcades in town.  Somewhere along the line I had a birthday and I got Buckner and Garcia’s album Pacman Fever.  The single was just starting to get airplay and I loved it.  Have you ever had the fever?
