Wacky wheels surely is a very memorable one. The moment i read about it it plays in my head. Though Jazz 2 is iconic too. Jazz 1 is nostalgic. Duke is great, but I've heard it so many times... hocus pocus is simple yet enjoyable, but nothing too special. Wolfen is meh.

Without a doubt the best tune ever made is from the OST of a game called: Trip World (GameBoy) - World 3 (Part 1). (BTW, the whole soundtrack is marvelous!)

directly followed by: Battletoads (GameBoy) - Stage 3.

The Difference Between a Mod and Fan art?, a Fan art is a Concept and a Mod is that Concept put into life.

Wacky Wheels followed by Jazz for me.

Nice selection there Zilem! Definitely like StarCraft, Red Alert and a few of the Terminal Velocity tracks, but those others are good too

Did you know that a slightly different version of the Dark Ages title theme came bundled with the Wolfenstein 3D Super Utilities? I've uploaded both versions of the song, along with DOS-tools that can play them. Just download this, extract all the files and run PLAY.BAT in DOSBox.
