Hear disk drives play the 'Back to the Future' theme (really)

Think, McFly, think! What's a crazy-fun way to cover the theme from the 1980s classic sci-fi comedy flick "Back to the Future"? With disk drives, of course.

Eighties pop culture buffs may feel a tinge of nostalgia hearing the "Back to the Future" theme song, especially when played by the moving parts of disk drives. To make this video happen, YouTuber Arganalth attached a Raspberry Pi computer to a bunch of floppy and HDD drives, placed the whole getup inside a suitcase, and programmed the drives' mechanisms to play songs. And because he built his personal sound machine inside of luggage, he'll able to take most anywhere. Smart!

Put your souped-up DeLorean in drive and take a listen to this.
