It's been a long time now so I can't even remember how it goes but Super Scramble Simulator had a great tune to it.

I tried this and it is remarkably unwise. Under-taking with a whu-huuu-hoooo is frowned upon by the slower, aged and the police.

I thought Glider Rider & Starglider had pretty good tunes.

NightBreed. Best tune ever.

Following up would be Golden Axe, Target Renegade, Robocop and Space Harrier 2.

Star Glider had actual singing at the beginning of the game - and great speech throughout

I overtaken people in my car with the Outrun music playing too :lol: I couldn't stop laughing the whole time.

Also I drove down Blackpool promenade with the title tune from Lotus Turbo Challenge II (Amiga version) cranked right up to full volume, and the windows down so that everyone else could hear it. :shock:

As for fav speccy 128K tunes:

1. Head Over Heels
2. Batman (the John Ritman one - similar to HoH)
3. Outrun
4. Gauntlet / Gauntlet II (I like both of these)

and that's all I can think of at the mo!!!

Subway Vigilante.

Also, Egghead 4 is pretty funky - yes, I know I wrote the game so I may be biased, but Yerzmyey did an amazing job with the music.
