The music from games made for the Commodore Amiga line of computers played a huge part of my childhood, and some tracks still get my toes tapping. Microprose Formula One Grand Prix is one of those, which a fantastic variation on Fleetwood Mac's song "The Chain", which has been used for the BBC Formula One coverage for as long as I can remember.



Just fantastic. <3

Mmm, and all *I* was stuck with was Accolade's Grand Prix Circuit, which had a pretty typical PC speaker theme tune. :)

(The PC speaker actually COULD be programmed to play back proper music, as later MOD players demonstrated, but perhaps not in 1988, while the CPU was busy running the actual game already.)

Happy Birthday!
