If you found anything new, there's not one reason you should not. Smile

Since the video for Gorby's Pipeline in the Wiki article is mine, and the music from the game one of my favourite VGM renditions of classical music (and likely one of my earliest introduction to classical music without me knowing it), I've updated the article with a couple more song names and their composers:

There's a couple more, according to Game OST.com, such as Profokiev, but the track titles deviate a bit at times from the English titles some of the compositions are more commonly known as. I plan to do a small playlist of videos with each composition in this game in a separate video, so I'll have a more complete tracklist by then.

When Search for Mum first came out, I played a lot of this game (though never finished it), and loved the music (even though it would get quite repetitive after a while).

I was quite a young lad at the time though, so I hadn't heard of Monty Python. So, it wasn't till many years later, that I recognised that song in Monty Python's intro theme song.

Several years later again, when I recorded the first part of my Longplay video of the game, and got a ContentID claim on the music, I found out that the tune the Python crew popularised, was actually a march composed by John Philip Sousa, called "The Liberty Bell" in 1893. Not sure if I ever appealed that ContentID claim though, as I'm quite sure that music is in the public domain by now...

Jack the Nipper from Baby Elephant Walk by Henry Mancini.

I have a feeling that the Red Lights of Amsterdam music comes from a famous one? Isn't it?

One of my favourite msx PSG musics Radarsofts breaker was definately influenced by 'I Was Kaiser Bill´s Batman'

Maybe we should talk about the "Lazy Jones" entry. I think it was actually the other way around.

Yup, that's definitely vice versa Wink Lazy Jones = original David Whittaker. So that entry would fit in another section/table perhaps ('stuff that takes inspiration from (original) MSX music') Smile

Well, as it was also released on C64 and Spectrum, I don't know which version came first. Smile
Also, is it just me, or, about that "The Castle", music - I just don't hear it.
