In fact I was playing the Mega Turrican level 1 tune when Alex walked in and said "wow I like that," he didn't know what it was.
I agree; it's good stuff. The Genesis/MD generally had developers making much, much better use of FM synthesis than most PC games ever did...

That said, it's easy to tell that the Amiga version was the original; it just sounds like a more natural fit of instrumentation-to-style.
