Retrotech Bohemian Rhapsody

Found on a new site I’m having fun with, veryshortlist:

YouTube user bd594 has taken a bunch of old-school computer gear and put it to good use, synching the mechanical noises from the hardware’s motors into an excellent cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

An HP ScanJet 3C fills in for Freddie Mercury, and an ancient TI-99/4a plays Brian May’s lead-guitar part. (The other “band members” include an Atari 800XL and an 8-inch floppy disk.) The entire song is just a few seconds longer than Queen’s original recording — and in its own, weird way, it’s almost as satisfying. Believe it or not, it too will rock you.
