Blast from the past: "Pac-Man Fever"

THIS SONG. Think if Kenny Loggins wrote a song about Pac-Man. Now, take that hypothetical song and make it better. At last, you kinda-sorta have a conception of the song “Pac-Man Fever” by Buckner and Garcia from 1984.

 

They say this song is supposed to be a parody, but a parody of what, exactly? People who played Pac-Man? The 80’s? The Cars? Anyways, Buckner and Garcia actually made an entire concept album about videogames, which you can read about on its Wikipedia page.
