    So, I had a really good game on my TZ the other night and nailed a new high score. I realized then how amazing the high score music was on that game as compared to my others. It really gets me moving. I don't think any of the other games I have are nearly as good when it comes to high score music. Any other games out there that people have noticed excellet high score music?

    Swords of Fury comes to mind....the whole sound package on that game is awesome...well maybe not the swooshing flippers or lionman callouts...but the music is sweet...

    I just love that "just slightly out of tune" jig on LOTR when you manage to get a high score.

    TZ, for sure.

    Maybe not the best, but I really like Space Station when you pop your initials on there.

    Hmmm, I have a friend with a few of these. Think I can get him to reset his high scores?

    That was the first game that popped into my head as well. I could be wrong, but it sounds like some type of Bach composition from the Baroque era. The pipe organ perfectly fits the mood of the game.

    Quoted from hawkeye11:

    Another one of those games from the late 80's with great music.

    Don't get high score enough to really know and when I do I am too excited to notice.

    BBH all the way.

    I think FT is kinda cool especially after the normal music.

    Isn't the TZ high score music just the LITZ music? Don't get me wrong; it's good, but not unique to high scores. Perhaps the question of uniqueness doesn't come into play, though.

    I always liked FT's tune too (unique to hstd). One of the best pieces of hstd music, though, and I can't believe I'm saying this, is in P*p*y*. As crappy as that game is, the hstd music is really great. Fortunately you can play it from test mode and don't have to suffer playing the game.

    I wqas thinking SoF as well when I read the headline.

    Saw thread title, was going to post this.

    +1

    Also the one in BoP is absolutely brilliant.

    EATPM.
    Elvira always gets me amped!
    If and when I ever get the urge to start a Chiptune band, I will be covering that for sure!

    The LOTR music always reminds me of the Main Street Electrical Parade...

    OT: I always wanted to strangle the guy on Pete's Dragon- SOooOOo annoying!
    At least Tinkerbell was always super hot!

    Edit: Awww, who am I kidding?!?
    I love pretty much most of the 80's SS HSM!
    *exhale* I feel so much better now that that is off my chest...

    2nd.

    Also Scared Stiff. That finale they brilliantly made scream at for to play yet another game. High energy addictive stuff that keeps the coins roll in.

    BoP Billionaire club music.Completely different than anything you've been hearing since starting the game.Plays while you enter your intials."Welcome to the billionaires club" Oh Yeah!!Scott

    Whirlwind! The light show that goes with it is awesome.

    Never thought about that before but you're right! I will never hear it the same again.

    Totally agree about FT with the palm tress and music.

    Got to agree with that, the high score music on Whirlwind is amazing

    Hmm, never really occurred to me. Perhaps I'm more apt to listen at the end of a game.

    And, good catch on Whirlwind. Hadn't thought of that one, but agree.

    Let me add myself to the list of those that love the Swords of Fury high score music. A friend of mine once confirmed that the music is a Bach fugue, but unfortunately I don't remember which one it was.
