Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 15 - Action Biker (Rob Hubbard)

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 15:-
Rob Hubbard - Action Biker

Songs that remind me of my childhood are not just limited to popular music which was available and eligible for the charts. One song in particular which always conjures up memories from when I was little is from a classic computer game called Action Biker.  I was first introduced to this game back in late 1985.  My friend, Steve Ready had it on his Atari 800XL, and the theme song got stuck in my head ever since.  At the time, our family only had a Commodore Plus 4 and I was extremely jealous because Action Biker was not available for that machine.  A few years later I managed to get it when I was lucky enough to get a Commodore 64 for Christmas in 1987.

Rob Hubbard wrote some of the most memorable songs on the Commodore 64, but this one will always stand out for me.  I wrote a remix of it a few years ago, along with a short video of me playing, and finishing the game (see the video below), although the original will always be the best!

A great game, a great song, and some fantastic memories - not bad for £1.99!
