Buddy Holly music was one of my favourite listenisings to way back then.

This is Buddy's "That'll be the Day" from 1955

" She was only sixteen" by Craig Douglass and the UK number 1 between 11 september and 9th October 1959. Again favourite of mine.

Pink I don't mind, as long as it's not on a car or in the kitchen, Pink Floyd though? I'll have to pass, too boring... No foot tapping beat...

I have this for Windows. I managed to get all the way through it a few years ago. Something like 40 levels.

Then there's Zaxxon from 1984 and Koronis Rift from 1985, Zaxxon was good, Koronis Rift was much better & hard as hell after a point...

Koronis Rift

Objective... Looting ancient star ships...

The enemy trying to stop one from looting, totally automated and abandoned in place...
