A good shooter thrives on a solid track, but what particular tunes get your blood pumping?

Bio-Hazard Battle soundtrack on the Megadrive is one of my favourite shoot em'up soundtracks. Rez on the Dreamcast / Playstation 2 is another all time favourite shoot em'up soundtrack of mine.

Delta, by Rob Hubbard. I never could stand the game, but his Pink Floyd-inspired soundtrack is fantastic.

Sanxion on C64 - average game , but flippin' superb soundtrack
Crazy Comets (C64 again) was pretty cool too
Warhaw (Atari 800xl) and Foundations Waste (ST) get worthy mentions too

Its hard because there's so much to choose from but I'm going to go out on a limb and opt for......Sky Kid!.
Its nothing special and doesn't get the adrenaline pumping, it just typifies Retro gaming for me and has a light hearted, bouncy decidedly arcadey vibe that just screams 80's gaming at you.

Ooh, big question... Katakis, Enforcer, Delta, Hades Nebula from the C64 (and if i actually thought about that question it'd be a longer list =-) Wings Of Death from the ST and Amiga, Battle Squadron and Uridium 2 on the Amiga as well, pretty much the entire Gradius series, Thundercross and Thundercross 2 from the arcades, R-Type Delta or Ikaruga from more recent hardware...

Just have a real nostalgic love for the music on the C64 version of Terra Cresta - dunno why, just do!
