When out on the highway or travelling down the miles of grid roads we have out here, I have a CD of MP3s of my favourite SID tunes for driving. On my top 10 are the SID tunes from the TND game, "Let's Invade!", by Richard Bayliss, like this one:
Giana Sisters - Intro & in game music Turbo Outrun by Jeroen Tel Retrogade by Rowlands Moonlight by Defbeat Nebulus in game music Boulderdash intro Cybernoid by Jeroen Tel Bombjack - all music Italia ‘90 theme
I suppose you already know all the classic tunes. Game music has certainly taken a step down since the late 80's, but one tune that is very good and probably unknown is the one from a 16k competition game "Ring on a String"
Another cool modern styled tune was from the recent competition game Super Goattron, however it is very short (maybe a minute?)
Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! Some I'm familiar with but some I'm not. So, I'll be checking all of those ones out. It will be nice to add some new tunes to the driving CD.
From the new ones I've listened to so far, Unused 1, Warpzone, Retrograde, and Cybernoid have all made the cut!
Retrogade and Cybernoid 2 are some of my favorite tunes. Moonlight might be my number one. If that is not entirely your cup of tea, you might want to check out the Defbeat Music Collection 2. It has 4 tunes, all different but all nice for your ears.
@ VIRTUALSKY Any Chance of getting a download of your driving CD? Lets Invade sounds pumping to want to make you speed up. I use songs like :
Power to the Music (Motley Crew)
Rock N Roll Revolution (Salva)
Hey, thanks for the recommendations! (I used to drive to Ministry, Front 242, Nitzer Ebb and Sisters Of Mercy. I don't really have the ears for them anymore)
I should be able to put something together to share the tunes I listen to. It helps playing these SIDs on an NTSC machine... they play at a higher tempo, so are more "frantic" making them good for driving (at least for me) Several of them are tunes composed by richardtnd
