Your favorite main menu music from games

Less beep-bloopy than my previous post:



I wanted to add the introduction theme for T.F.X. because it's ten kinds of awesome, but I couldn't find the CD version on Youtube, only the inferior MIDI version rendered through an SCC-1.

Favorite track from any Commodore game. Dem digitized samples.

Sorry, I meant main menu music, I should've specified that fully, however if a game doesn't have main menu music then perhaps you could list the game for it's intro or pause music, I originally wanted to list Vice City for it's intro theme because I liked it and the game lacked main menu music.

I nominate the entire soundtrack to Acid Tetris, since your background music (the only music in the game) is chosen in the main menu.

If you like OMF:



This one's from Flux:


And:


Jumping on the Crusader bandwagon too. One of the best games ever made and with a soundtrack to match.

Any game where the main menu's music is a toned down version of the final boss' theme.

yup, Iagree with the One Must Fall, Alien Trilogy, Red Faction and Unreal Tournament already mentioned and I'll add:

Terminal Velocity (I don't think this has been mentioned yey - but it wouldn't surprise me if I just missed it)



And I have always really liked the music from Battle Squadron on the Amiga.



And, yes, I'll say it, I like the nice understated main menu music in Wrack.

Wacky Wheels (by Apogee, published in 1994 IIRC) has great music (MIDI music composed by Mark Klem!). The main menu/intro music is very memorable:

"Sonic 3" menu music theme from sega genesis.

^ OMG, I confess that I really wanted to add this in my list on the previous post, but then I stopped myself because I realized that it's not the song from the "Main Menu" but rather its the song from the "Stage Select Menu".
If only this thread didn't focus specifically on "Main Menu" themesongs, I would've mentioned this tune way ahead of you. Cause I totally love this tune!
