- Pac-Man Fever
- I was wandering around the record stores a couple of years ago when I saw a full-length album called “Pac-Man Fever”. I vaguely recognized the title, but knew it only as a single. Could I resist buying an album of songs about eighties arcade games? Of course not.
- Time Magazine, 1982: Pac-Man Fever
“Pac-Man is bursting out all over. Not only has the 15-month-old arcade game swallowed up an estimated $1 billion in quarters to become the hottest item in the video-game market, but the little yellow creature is now invading homes and spawning nearly 200 offshoots ranging from jeans to a chart-busting pop song, Pac-Man Fever.”
