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 (at the time of writing in 2015 – Ed.). I’ve never played Heavy Rain. “David Cage” […]

“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

Hey They’re the ones Never chipped their PS1s Never trained a Pokemon […]

(Most of) My Maraoke Songs
Posted at 01:47 on 22nd February 2015

Note: As of late 2019, Marioke has been renamed Maraoke. 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 […]

Another Marioke song. This hasn’t been used as there is already another contribution on file for the base song. “VVVVVV” – after “DNA” by Little Mix Does the gravity flip you when you least expect it? Do you mash at ‘Restart’ as you plunge to your death? No time rewind Or quicksave key Your spiky […]

“Get Lucky”
Posted at 19:47 on 20th January 2014

As performed at the One Life Left 2013 Christmas party. In my defence this was written last Summer before Get Lucky got played to death and became Boring Geoff Keighley’s favourite song. Enjoy. “Spelunky” – after “Get Lucky” as performed by Daft Punk (Verse 1.) This game is unforgiving Go back to the beginning Try […]
