8-bit music is usually hit or miss, with much of it sounding like sugar-and-caffeine-fueled spasms from video game obsessed manchildren. However, this remix by Omodaka of Kokiriko Bushi, considered to be the oldest Japanese song ever, is sweet sweet ear candy, and the corresponding video directed by Teppei Maki is a feverish, Residents-ish blast from the Philip K. Dick future, complete with breakdancing skeletons with floating, disembodied eyeballs and Thing-like hands.
