The problem with owning a speccy 48k was it wasn't too mind blowing in the soundtrack department. I had to rely on music to keep my adrenaline up when playing games. I remember playing Jean Michel Jarre alot. Equinoxe when playing Space Harrier, Rendezvous when playing Green Beret. Games like Rollercoaster, Fairlight, Dynamite Dan, Wriggler, Marsport and Starquake were played to mostly a mix of ZZTop's Eliminator, Inxs Listen Like Thieves and The Stranglers Dreamtime. Then I got a Speccy +2 and then an Amiga, PC which made listening to commercial music redundant.
In 1997 when I was playing Kung fu master on Mame they hadn't fixed the tune playing so I played John Barry's Game Of Death soundtrack which was rather fitting I thought!
