This pandemic has us thinking back on what it was like to walk into a video game arcade like a rock star.


I used to count the pixels on the TV screen
We had 3 channels: BBC1, BBC2, ITV
I played Pacman, Frogger, Pong, Tempest, and Centipede
I Remember when they played music on MTV - what?
Atari, Sega, and Nintendo, Commodore
Hit up the mall, saw Tilt and ran right for the door
The room of games, so full as far as eyes could see
Enter the champion, now bow down at my feet
We played all day with just a pocket full of change
Setting high scores with just 3 letters in our names
Going for for high score - Legendary status - rule them all

You can bet I played them all
Like an arcarde superstar
We were heroes through it all
Saving worlds 3 lives a go

You can bet I played them all
Like an arcarde superstar
