Luke Ski
Q*bert 
When there are groups of things in pop-culture, I often find myself gravitating towards the one in the group that I feel is very awesome yet unjustifiably getting less love and attention than the rest. My favorite Star Trek show is "Deep Space Nine". My favorite Fraggle is Boober. My favorite Disney movie of the past decade is "Meet The Robinsons"...

...And my favorite classic 80's arcade game is "Q*bert".

Which inexplicably seems to be the only game of that era that didn't get it's own obnoxious novelty song... Until now.

Music by the very Slick "TV's Kyle".

Also, if you hurry, you can still get select CDs of mine with instant download for only $4 or $1 each during my "Going Out Of Print" Sale at lukeski.bandcamp.com !!!


This song is now available on the following CDs:

Fun *and* educational. (The "Gilbert Gottlieb" reference sent me on a short Wiki-jaunt.)

Was this song about about Q*Bert?

Hey now, this was one of the video games I was actually good at. All hail the mighty Q!

It's true! Q*bert was probably the most merchandised game of it's time that didn't get a contemporary novelty song. (Aside from the Saturday Supercade theme song, of course.) Even Dig Dug had a song back then. (Sorry, Ian.)

Was Q Bert hopping on the $20,000 Pyramid?

This song does exactly what it is supposed to do.
