Any from the old Lemmings!

For really old computer game music... my favourites were all written by Rob Hubbard on the Commodore 64

"Boss battle theme - final fantasy 7"

Was remastered when the Final Fantasy theme was redone for the films.

Would Bomb the Bass, Megablast, be to obscure? Does anyone remember that?

Final fantasy 3 (snes)
Zelda (snes)
Secret of Mana (yup, snes :D)

Edit: Soz didn't read header properly
Some great music in all of those though, especially FF3.

Anything composed by Obuo Uematsu.

Golden Axe on the arcade for me, screams included

Also 'Ken's' stage on Street Fighter 2

Yes I do, was in the game Xenon II (don't use me as a reference though, if all the party goers are between 35-40 then you may be ok) (_;)

Ken's stage? I was thinking either Ryu's stage or Chun Li's stage! Also Firestarter Prodigy and Chemical Beats Chemical Bros....

If you want some video game inspired music listen to The Protomen, or The Depreciation Guild.

Two absolute classics:
Sonic 2 (MD) - Chemical Zone
Streets of Rage (MD) - Opening Stage / Boss Battle

These are probably my favourite soundtracks overall:
Sonic CD (JAP/EUR)
TMNT: Turtles in Time (Snes)
Super Probotector (Snes)
Donkey Kong Country (Snes)
Zombies (Snes)
Legend of the Mystical Ninja (Snes)
C&C Red Alert (PC)
Gran Turismo (PSOne)
WipEout (PSOne)
Nights (Saturn)
Sega Rally (Saturn)
Guardian Heroes (Saturn)

I want to go to the party!

I guess the snes and megadrive hold a lot of fond memories for you!

For pc games I'm thinking of a short clip of the Dune game...

Indeed indeed. I added a few more from the Playstation/Saturn era.
Don't make 'em like they used to. Konami used to make belting soundtracks for Snes games!

I nearly forgot Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands

I can't get on youtube as I am at work but: -

The Moon Stage from Ducktales on the Nes.

Some Galaxy News Radio Oooooooowwwwwwoooooo

super mario kart snes version

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Saria's Song

youtube.com/wat…f2c

Not many from this gen! Video game music is best when its techno.

Try this: 8bc.org/

Its music made via 8 bit console, about as retro video game as you can get.

Sonic, Streets of Rage et al beat PS3 and 360 modern day musical scores by a mile.
