White Rabbit: A Gaming Conundrum Solved

Back in 2002, Red Faction II came out. While I will play games of that nature, they're not high on my "to-have" list. However, the song playing in the trailer for the game intrigued me so that it's haunted me for nine years of my life. Seriously.



Back in 2002, when the internet wasn't so ripe with all the information it has now. Google was still a baby and Youtube was only a sparkle in its father's eye, I scoured the internet and gaming forums in hope that someone knew this song. However, I couldn't find any information (and perhaps my searchfu sucked then and I SO misheard those lyrics), which is inconceivable by today's internet standards. So, I let it go, but the song stayed on my mind. I called off the search dogs.

Fast forward to nine years later. I've just gotten into 8tracks.com because I love listening to people's personal mixes. I have a few uploaded, and I'm working on getting more up there. I'm still a newb there. Anyhow, I listened to a fanmix for the movie Sucker Punch. While listening to the song, I heard a line in a similar intonation that I remember from Red Faction II. Looking at the mix, I see that it's called White Rabbit by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

Remember, what the dormouse said, "Keep your head! Keep your head!"

But even though I recognized it, I knew this was not the voice that haunted me from the game trailer. While I certainly did enjoy the version by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, I knew it had to be a cover of some sort. A quick Youtube search told me that it was a cover of a song by Jefferson Airplanes. If Youtube was a person, they would've gotten a kiss with full-on tongue.


THIS! This is the song that I couldn't get out of my head for so long. And it's funny because the song did come to mind a few days ago when a friend and I were talking about Red Faction II. I'd told myself that I was going to do a search for the song again, but didn't. And since I didn't search for it, it kindly came to me.

This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
