Trending: We rode along with Seattle PD to see how cops are busting drivers violating new distracted driving law

Updated below with answer and winner … 

Longtime listeners to the GeekWire radio show and podcast may have noticed that we have a new intro for our weekly Name that Tech Tune contest. KIRO Radio’s Erynn Rose, who puts together the show each week, created the intro using a bunch of cool little tunes and sounds, and we decided it would be fun to focus on one of them as the subject of this week’s contest.

It’s a song from a classic video game, and we’ll admit this isn’t an easy one. Up for grabs is a pair of tickets to the GeekWire Ping-Pong & Anniversary Bash, coming up March 6 at the Showbox SoDo in Seattle. If you think you know the source of the tune below, send it to [email protected].

Are you ready? Here’s the tune.
