I've not got time to flush this out now, but what are peoples favourite songs/scores and music from computer and video games.

 

I'm sure something similar has been done, but I cant find it

 

Basically pick choose and where possible link your favourite game music.

 

I'll try and keep an index updated on page one for ease of use and away we go.

Sonic 3 was originally composed by the late Michael Jackson. Rumours had circulated for years after many fans said they had heard "Smooth Criminal" Samples in the Stage
Listen from about 20 seconds. Shortly after he died, Sega of America confirmed that MJ was in fact working with them to produce the Soundtrack to Sonic 3. But he left the project after decided the Mega Drive "de-valued" the sound of his music. Also due to the impending child abuse lawsuit at the time, Sega of America decided not to put his name to any credit. Samples of his work can be also be heard in the following levels:

 

Carnival Night zone - Act 1 (MJ Jam) about 1 minute in gives it away...

 

Also the Sonic 3 ending credits shares the same chord structure as Stranger in Moscow:

Honourable mentions to Daytona USA, Tony Hawks 2 and the Wrestlefest menu music.

 

I had forgotten about this and now it's stuck in my head. What a great video game theme! Good shout on Tony Hawks 2 as well, especially with the awesome '96 Quite Bitter Beings'.

I'll add GTA Vice City, San Andreas and that radio station on GTA 3 which played the Scarface soundtrack.
