Finally i have watched Fast and Furious, the 1st one . During the movie, the theme song was so familiar to me , and i remembered, it was the XTR racing theme song.... is there any story about this ? knowing that XTRacing was only Amiga game and the distance between the game and the movie 1995 - 2001

I don't have an answer but :

- This thread should not be in off-topic, so if a GM can move it to the normal board, it would be nice

- no information on Exotica:

Composers are : "Simon Speight (Title and Ingame) & Tony Farrell (Ingame)"

- On HOL:

"Music by Simon Speight and Tony Farrell; samples by Mark Fitt and Bullfrog Productions (taken from the Magic Carpet soundtrack). "

- Wikipedia states:

"The score to Fast & Furious was composed by Brian Tyler"

And it seems that there is are two soundtrack CDs:


It would be nice if you could manage to identify (youtube or other means) what the name of theme song in the movie is and what the name of the music track on the game is.

It should make further research easier and be very helpful to make a note in the HOL entry if there is more information on the matter.

There was one theme I couldn't find on the 2nd CD (1st CD is regular songs licensed for inclusion in the film and the 2nd IIRC is instrumental/incidental music bespoke for the film).

I always like the music during the house party scene but never found it on either CD, I hope it's that music that got copied!

Which XTR song and which F&F song? It would help to be able to compare if yuou posted that.

If it is the jungle tune, then that one samples from a jungle tune, so F&F probably licensed the original.

Suffice to sway i don;t find the opening titles music of Fast & The Furious similar at all to any of the XTReme Racing tunes.
All F&F tunes are here: [ Show youtube player ]
XTR Main theme: [ Show youtube player ]
