I started watching the TV series Shameless recently because somehow I missed it when it first aired in 2004. In a few episodes (no. 5 of season 1 in particular), some of the music is very reminiscent of the LeChuck cut scenes from the Monkey Island games. Can you hear it? The ones that are intended to provoke a sense of foreboding, but be playful and light at the same time. The composer is called Murray Gold and has no connection to Lucasarts as far as I can tell.

Definitely looks more like mature C64 flavour to me.

Does anyone have a small child who watches In The Night Garden? There is a character in it who looks remarkably like the Amiga boing ball...

When I got my new PC with Windows7 64 bit and 8 gigs of ram I wanted to setup a ram disk for temp files to avoid trashing the SSD too much.

Well it was a pain, one day wasted on that rubbish to get a "fixed size" one !!!!

That reminded me of the Amiga, I had a dynamic sized ramdisk the first time I booted up my A500 20 years ago, having exactly 16384 times less ram than I have now

A lot of tracker music made on PC reminds me of Amiga... Especially heavy portamento and vibrato use, and "90s samples/ST-xx pack".. It's a very good feeling!

Oh, and cracktros on PC and game consoles, trainers, sine scrollers, starfields...

indeed... steal!

seriously though a lot of music sounds mod/sid like! i was watching a doc on youtube about trackers (music), and this guy does a presentation on Mod Tracker, talks about the history and shows of the modern version... very cool... his demo sounded like some recent pop songs
