haha sweet!! I'm still confused as to how he actually got those notes setup perfectly etc. with those floppy drives.

I mean I'm young and have only used floppies primarily in elementary, but I didn't know they could make all those frequencies and so loud.

Ghostbuster's and Game of Thrones impress me the most

There have been floppy drive songs out for several years now. The Imperial March was popular a couple years ago.

I remember seeing that one too. It's a perfect tune for the drives to replicate.

I remember my old late 90s motherboard bios would produce some notes on boot using the floppy drive, unfortunately I haven't got a recording of this.
