'Space Invaders' is a good fun, real catchy, new wave song about being addicted to the game of the same name. This song has sentimental value to me as I can remember personally being obsessed with Space Invaders. Everyone in the pub would lay there 10p (on the machine) waiting for their turn, and as many as possible in the pub would stand around you watching you dance in front of the machine as you tried to dodge those missiles. Hiding behind the defense and blasting holes through them to fire at the aliens, and getting to that final level when the aliens appeared directly above you. I got so good at it I could get the machine to go up to 999 and then back to zero again, making people waiting go mad. Sure it's nothing compared to today's games but in its day it was a classic.
The b-side is is a live version of 'Cheap 'n' Nasty' at the Marquee on July 1979.
So how many of you remember the original Space Invaders, or Donkey Kong? Leave a comment.
