33: Rhapsody in Creamed Spinach

This is a celebration of the sounds of the classic, green screen-era Game Boy, which can be as beautiful as what you'd hear on any fancypants console system capable of displaying full color. Thanks much to everyone who reached out with their suggestions for their favorite Game Boy tracks. Without you I wouldn't have ever learned who Yakapoo was.
