Previously Unreleased Weird Al Song “Pac-Man” (Beatles’ “Taxman”) Is Like a Time Machine

As Al Yankovic himself explains in this new/old track’s YouTube description, it is literally straight out of 1981. Yankovic recorded “Pac-Man” in his garage that year, along with some of his more famous tracks, just after the game’s debut in 1980, but it was never released and is now headed to join his Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of “Weird Al” Yankovic box set, which you can preorder until February 28—if you’ve got the cash.
