“Narcissistic Fantasy of Love & Hope” is either a band name, album title, or perhaps best as a song title.

I don't think I found an 8-bit version; but I had over two hours of covers, so it's tough to remember specifics for each song. Some interesting versions coming up, though.

A cappella, 8-bit, bagpipe, or accordion -- any one will do. And here's the a cappella.

Those are the touchstones for any 3oak, yes; plus reggae or marching band versions, of course. Sadly, this song doesn't have most of those.

I admit that I commented from in my shower. With the water spraying, through the shower curtain, over the vent fan noise, and bathroom acoustics it sounds like the Hawaiian uke song.

Oh, probably. I know Monica and Jason Elbogen are fans of that genre; not sure how to search for an entire show of it, though.

re “Scream-O” genre : I got a semi-dressing down / edumacation from 2 of my millennial nephews re “Sceam-O” not even being a legitimate genre and that it is/was an unwanted labeling issue… So welcome to the club of unwanted genre labeling !

Right - often pushback on Genre Labels, historically. I guess that's because they usually come from Outside - not from the progenitors themselves ...whether they then get co-opted - & 'repurposed' somewhat - from the Creators later is then the question. True generally I guess for Social Groups - or Movements (Beats, Hippies, Punks...)
But I have heard this more than once re Screamo specifically...
