Super Nintendo Electro Pop Song

I've haven't updated my video game system since 1990's Super Nintendo. As far as I'm concerned it's all been downhill from there.

Recently as I was loading 'Super Mario World' something odd happened; the screen went blank and the system began playing an electro pop song (very Crystal Castles-esque.) I recorded it with my laptop for posterity sake.

Anyone want to remix this?
