Music: The Last Ninja by Ben Daglish

In particular, 4:21. The stage 1 theme is an absolutely amazing composition from the early days of the medium. It manages to create one hell of a mood starting out, and then it kicks into overdrive, launching a cavalcade of layers over the listener. I was blown away by this back as a kid, and I still am impressed by Ben Daglish’s work here. This is the whole soundtrack, which I am not admittedly a fan of (Stage 1 and 2 are my jam, and that’s about the end of it), but definitely an aural highlight of the Commodore 64 days.
