Off Da Wall from Cool Spot, more or less constantly since the first time I ever played that game.

Recently (because I've been hammering it) it's been the main theme from Street Fighter III: Third Strike, especially the bit that goes "Threeeeeeeeeee...YeeeeeeAAAAAHHH!"
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Super Scramble on CPC for some reason? The C64/ZX versions have different music.

Most of mine are Atari ST demoscreens, some of which were from games. So I could tell you the demo but not the game lol. Oh, and Ninja from the Atari 400.
