"Songs good" for "sounds good"

Looking for the origin of all it’s cracked up to be on Wordreference, I came across this musical eggcorn whereby song is verbed and stands in for sound. Some are clearly ESL, many hits are WTFT, but some seem be the genuine item.

Cheers! songs good! I like this one.

Has anyone else experienced the Blue Screen of Deaf on Assassin’s Creed 3 PS3? I do not mean blue screen of death, I mean blue screen on screeching noise that songs like a high pitch sword sharper mixing in with the noise that you hear when there is a chest or feather near by.
