Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" sung by old computer gear

Almost as cool as Ruben's Tube.

I'm not sure if it's as cool as the Ruben's Tube video , but it's pretty close. According to the person who posted this miracle, YouTube handle bd594, the piano sounds are provided by an Atari 800 XL (which happens to be the first computer I ever saw at a friend's house rather than school), lead guitar is courtesy of a TI-99/4A, the bass is an 8-inch floppy, the gong a 3.5-inch hard drive, and the vocals are an HP Scanjet 3c. (I saw this first on BoingBoing.)
