All of 'em... it's like a retro jukebox up 'ere sometimes! The most recent "stick" is an old Soedesoft crack intro tune from the C64 that my mind keeps drifting into from Boten Anna.

Ever since playing Ultima III in the 80's on the C64, every so often I'll whistle the tunes to myself. There always in my head. Plus oddly enough loader music. Ocean Loader by Martin Galway, which in turns sticks his awsome music from Parallax in my head.

The Final Cut is a Roger Waters album in all but name.. It's full of the tracks the other band members didn't want in The Wall.
Still a good album but doesn't really sound like a floyd one, it's closer to Pro's and Cons than Wish you were here...

Super Mario Bros.... goddamn, that is such an infuriatingly catchy tune. Once it's in there, it stays there until I go to sleep! :D

Yeah I know the controvesy around this album but it still ranks as my 2nd fave Floyd album after The Wall.

For some ungodly reason I have a small sound snippet from the ST version of 'Licence to Kill' by Domark in my head. It's not even the title music, it is the very small ditty that plays when you get shot. It can't last more than 6 seconds, and yet it's playing over and over so much in my brain I need to fire up the game to check it out :)
