Stick out tongue Music - the sound of happiness

I thought I'd find a thread like this if I searched for one, but I didn't see one (although, as has been proved before, my searching abilities are somewhat limited!).

Music was one of the Amiga's strongest plus points, so what Amiga game music do you still find yourself humming today? And I don't mean while you're playing the emulated version

My vote has to go to:

- Settlers, which me and my mate would sit whistling while playing two-player
- Lemmings, obviously
- Alien Breed 2, atmospheric in the extreme

I'm sure I'll think of some more too

Army Moves' "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball" (more whistling than humming though, and my grandad does it too )

The Le Chuck theme from Monkey Island. I've never heard such a great tune in any game again

the only song i've ever learned on a wood flute (? you know the shepherd's one ) is the main of monkey island 2...
but to answer, also the char-songs from civilization, the intro of Eye of the Beholder 2, Shadow of the Beast 2...
Now that you make me think about it, there are many that are in my mind as any non game related song that i like.

All good answers! I knew this was a good idea! Shame the Amiga-based Best Game Music In The World Ever website went down the pan really - http://gamemusic.siliconcircus.co.uk if you want to see what's left

The techno music for the intro of Project X remains the best part of the game for me!

Also Cool Coyotes piano shindig at the beginning of Fire And Ice is immensley enjoyable.

R-Type, Xenon and Xenon 2 all have fabulous main theme tunes

All good choices, but you forgot:

Agony, both intro and ingame themes
Shadow of the Beast II, the death screen theme
Leisure suit Larry
Lotus Turbo Esprit

The best of the best is of course Loom, you can't beat The Swan Lake, but it's not Amiga music obviously.

War... never been so much fun!

I loved the title song for Cannon Fodder, not to mention the between levels music. I just used to let it play for hours... oh how sad
