Buckner & Garcia -- 'Pac-Man Fever'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.


With Pokemon Go still in the ascendent stage fad-hood, it’s worth revisiting this old ‘80s audio relic of video game fandom, especially because this one would be quite easy to adapt, lyrically, from Pac-Man to Pokemon. Someone should pick up the Red Phone and inform Weird Al.
