I still can remember that day, I was probably 15 years old, and I had a copy of Pokémon Red in one hand and my old Game Boy pocket in the other, it was late but I was to exited to go to sleep, I put the cartridge in my Game Boy, turn it on and wait for the confirmation ... clink! one second and there it was, the 8 bit music for the loading screen of one of the most iconic Game Boy games ever, a melody that still giving goosebumps a lot of us.
