Buckner And Garcia Perform “Pac-Man Fever” On Solid Gold (1982)


With the great news posted earlier by the Retroist that today IS Pac-Man Day, it seemed an opportune moment to share Buckner and Garcia’s “Pac-Man Fever” performance on Solid Gold.

So if you are not too exhausted from visiting your local arcade and playing hours of Pac-Man to help celebrate this wondrous day why not take a moment and watch this fantastic performance?

All I need now is a bowl of Pac-Man cereal and my day will be set!

Buckner and Garcia’s “Do the Donkey Kong”

I know Christmas is in the air, but its the perfect time to take step back from all that holiday cheer and enjoy some retro video game music magic.

Hit play on this video:

Then sing along!

Wave your hands in the air
Stomp your feet on the ground
Climb up the ladder quickly
And then spin yourself around

Open the umbrella up
And answer the phone
You can do it with a partner
You can do it all alone

Scale up the wall
Just how high can you go?
You’re sure to break her heart
If you get to her too slow
Pound upon your chest
And take an elevator ride
You can get off at the top
And then you look from side to side.

Come on, come on,
Come on, come on,
Do the Donkey Kong
(Do the Donkey Kong)

Come on, come on,
Come on, come on,
Do the Donkey Kong

Do the Donkey Kong

Tiptoe through the tulips
And then raise your hands up high
There’s a fire down below
And you don’t want to catch his eye
Hide behind each other
And don’t even make a sound
You’re in trouble now
Take the elevator down

Jump over the barrels
And let out a little scream
Duck underneath the pie
‘Cause it’s a coconut cream
You pick the hammer up
And then you put the fire out
Now we think you know
What Donkey Kong is all about

Come on, come on, (Come on)
Come on, come on, (Come on)
