When Finnish prog-metal keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen of Nightwish decided to make his solo album debut, he probably did some deep soul searching and quiet contemplating on what he needed to express to the world. Then, he landed squarely on, “People need to know about the life and times of Scrooge McDuck.” You know what? He wasn’t wrong.
His album, appropriately titled Music Inspired By The Life And Times Of Scrooge, is based on a graphic novel about the Scrooge’s origins by Don Rosa. Rosa is even providing the cover art for the album, and you can rock out to the music video for its first track, “A LifeTime of Adventure,” above.
Then, if waiting for the album to release in April is too much for you, you can also rock out to the Duck Tales theme by The Human Tim, because music from and about Duck Tales is the greatest.
- Final Fantasy VII music sung by floppy drives is surprisingly spot-on
- The Jamaican Bobsled team’s music video is pretty great, too
- And there’s going to be a Back to the Future musical
