“Where The Streets Have No Name”
Posted at 16:54 on 17th September 2017

My latest contribution to the Marioke video game karaoke canon – first performed 15/09/2017. My self-imposed writing brief this month was to find songs by artists that have so far been absent from the Marioke songlist, and to favour the stupidest jokes possible. “Where The Streets Are Of Rage” – after “Where The Streets Have […]

“50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”
Posted at 18:11 on 29th May 2017

My latest contribution to the Marioke video game karaoke canon – first performed 26/05/2017. A song that went to #1 in the US and sold over 1,000,000 copies, but which peaked at #23 in the UK singles chart. Something to bear in mind for future song choices… “50 Ways to Blow Your Cover” – after […]

“Geno”
Posted at 18:31 on 22nd January 2017

My latest contribution to the Marioke video game karaoke canon – first performed 20/01/2017 (Eighties Night). The Last Guardian is a must-own game for the PS4, unless you require games to constantly explain everything to you. “Trico” – after “Geno” by Dexys Midnight Runners Woke up in a cave with a fifty foot dog Oh […]

“Virginia Plain”
Posted at 00:57 on 20th November 2016

My latest contribution to the Marioke video game karaoke canon – first performed 19/11/2016. I only knew this song from Kevin Eldon’s version, so I was worried beforehand that it would be a bit obscure. You can probably work out which line was written first. “Neo Geo” – after “Virginia Plain” by Roxy Music Make […]

“Road to Nowhere”
Posted at 19:30 on 21st February 2016

My latest contribution to the Marioke video game karaoke canon – first performed 19/02/2016. (Actually this one’s been ‘in the system’ for a few months but I don’t think anyone had performed it before now.) Inspired by the the absurdly long and varied IMDB voice acting resume of Nolan North (“the thinking man’s Troy Baker”). […]

“Sabotage”
Posted at 15:45 on 21st November 2015

My latest contribution to the Marioke video game karaoke canon – first performed 20/11/2015. I should point out that this is what we call a ‘joke’ – I have no strongly held opinions about Quantic Dream or David Cage. I’ve never played Heavy Rain. “David Cage” – after “Sabotage” by Beastie Boys I can’t play […]

“She’s Electric”
Posted at 19:33 on 18th June 2015

Yet another Marioke song – first performed 17/06/2015, coincidentally on the 15th anniversary of the retail launch of the original Deus Ex. Oasis are terrible obviously, but sometimes a joke is too good to pass up. “He’s Augmented” – after “She’s Electric” by Oasis He’s augmented By Joseph Manderley he was selected To infiltrate sites […]

“In Bloom”
Posted at 16:39 on 14th June 2015

Another Marioke song – first performed 14/05/2015. A (hopefully obviously?) exaggerated fusillade aimed at games tourists (you know who you are). “Memes” – after “In Bloom” by Nirvana Wears a Zelda tee “Arrow to the knee” Minecraft Lego set Bored of zombies yet? Hey They’re the ones Never chipped their PS1s Never trained a Pokemon […]

One Life Left presents Marioke
Posted at 01:47 on 22nd February 2015

Video game karaoke (that is to say, karaoke to popular songs with the lyrics wittily rewritten to be about video games) has long been a staple of the One Life Left (Resonance FM’s long-running video game radio show/podcast) Christmas Party. But evidently once a year wasn’t enough. For the last several months, the One Life […]
