I saw this thread and had to post mine. Some of these tracks I still love today... Most of these from the Amiga. Hopefully really worth your time
Ghouls and Ghosts... music written by a guy called Tim Follin.
This first one I find mesmorising... it starts out all heavy and everything but by the end it becomes so blissful, you'll just want the sun to shine
and warm your skin.
So each level had its' own tune, that gave it a flavour. Level 2 always stood out as so different to anything I'd heard. The musician who wrote these
tunes is simply awesome.
Having revisited these tunes, I have to say that I think Ghouls and Ghosts on the Amiga had some of the best written music on any game I've played,
just because of sheer originality. Level 3 carries that on...
So finally on this game we have the high score board music. A great finish to this masterpiece.
So next, I don't think I could leave this post without adding some music from Shadow of the Beast... 2
The game over screen...
Anyone who played this game will remember that failing never felt so good, thanks to the picture and blissful riff that went with it. Enjoy!
Hope you liked some of these tunes Thanks for listening and sharing your own... great thread. Nostalgia eh!

Xanxion! I remember that I was always jealous of my m8 who had a 64 with it's multichannel audio haha, I also liked suicide express music on the
64. Meanwhile back on the zx spectrum this was one of my favourites

I see a lot of people have mentioned FF7, but for me, specifically, I would say the Prelude and Aerith's theme are the most beautiful. Another
beautiful tune, although obscure, would be the music on the menu screen of Starfox 64.
