Music references

Post by Rorthron »

As discussed in the other thread, could we consider adding music references to ZXDB? They could perhaps be included as notes.

I’ve updated the list of music references below, using this time a colon as a delimiter between game name and music credit. I've used a question mark to denote cases where doubt was expressed.

I repeat that I am just collating others’ information. I have not verified any of the information.

I've split the list between classical and non-classical, except where a title contains both.

Good idea! Please keep posting this information here, we will certainly do it.

BTW my apologies that we are still behind on updating ZXDB with all these kinds of suggestions. Nowadays there's more people reporting these things, than people working on database updates, so it takes time. But please don't stop reporting them in this forum! We are gradually going through every post and we will get everything done eventually.

This is an odd one: "A Whole New Ball Game" by Pete Cooke, only on a Crash covertape in July 1989.
W.A. Mozart, Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" K 525, I. Allegro
(i.e. the same music as Rockman, which occurred on a Crash tape the next month...)

Re: Music references

Post by TMD2003 »

Gah! Can't edit the last post (Is there a time restriction?) but staying with the Crash covertapes, I've found some more to add to the lists, both classical and non-classical:

Eskimo Eddie (Ocean, also Crash February 1990) - and, as I should have remembered, also Old Tower (Denis Grachev / Retrosouls): Gershon Kingsley / Hot Butter / anyone else who's covered it - "Popcorn" (in Eskimo Eddie, it's approximate, but recognisable; Old Tower's rendition is far better. And I know there's another game that has a crude 48K beeper version during play, it's a JSW-style platformer, not necessarily a JSW hack, possibly a modern, but I can't remember what it is off the top of my head...)

Egghead (i.e. Jonathan Cauldwell's original Egghead game from 1989): Jesús González Rubio - "Jarabe Tapatío" ("The Mexican Hat Dance" - widely recognised outside Mexico)

Doomskulle (Crash June 1990): Beethoven - "Für Elise" (and there must be another game or six that this is heard in - I'm fairly sure it's one of those that Specventure uses but isn't directly listed here.)

Gladiator: Julius Fučík - "Entry of the Gladiators" op. 68. (Same as Circus Games.)

Gunhead (Hellenic Software, probably only published by Crash): Europe - "The Final Countdown"

Egghead To The Rescue (the second Egghead game) - Jacques Offenbach - "Orphée aux enfers - Galop Infernal" (a.k.a. "the can-can music")

North and South (at least what I hear on the demo, check the full game and there may be more): "Yankee Doodle Dandy" (anon. probably trad. and may not even be American) and Daniel Decatur Emmett - "Dixie" / "In Dixie's Land" (whatever we're calling it).

Draughts Genius: Scott Joplin - "Maple Leaf Rag"; also, I recognise the title screen tune, as will everyone else, but don't know it's actual name...


And now some not from the Crash Powertape collection...

Mushroom Mania (Arcadia, probably 1983) has fragments from: Daniel Decatur Emmett - "Dixie" / "In Dixie's Land"; "When The Saints Go Marching In" (anon., probably trad. American?); "The Star-Spangled Banner" / the National Anthem of 'MURICA.

I am also surprised that nobody has yet mentioned the Anthems from the 128K version of Auf Wiedersehen Monty. These are the Anthems when entering the following countries:
Gibraltar and Montos: "God Save The Queen" (do I need to elaborate further?)
Spain: Leo Caerts / Leo Rozenstraten - "Y Viva España" (recorded by more different artists than I've had hot dinners, so it seems)
France: "La Marseillaise"
West Germany: "Das Lied der Deutschen"
Austria: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - "Symphony No. 40"
Netherlands: Klaus Günter Neumann et al. - "Tulips from Amsterdam"
Sweden: "The Swedish Chef's Theme" (by whoever write the music cues from The Muppet Show - Jim Henson, or...?)
Italy: Eduardo di Capua, Alfredo Mazzucchi, Giovanni Capurro - "O Sole Mio"
Greece: (apparently) Joseph Stein, Fred Ebb, John Kander - "Zorba" (or so I heard; best to check this one)
Any communist country (at the time: East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia): "The Red Flag", a.k.a. "O Tannenbaum", a.k.a. "Es lebe hoch der Zimmermannsgeselle", a.k.a. "Lauriger Horatius"; probably composed by Melchior Franck (1579-1639)
"Moledavia" - no idea... may have been composed for the game.
Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Denmark don't get an anthem, and Monaco was considered part of France...

Also, now that we're including non-classical soundtracks, another one that was blatant and obvious is CRL's The War Of the Worlds, based on Jeff Wayne's Excellent Musical Version Of "The War of The Worlds" rather than the book itself, and containing cues from "The Eve Of The War" (and probably other bits and pieces throughout the album).

Also also, Rorthon brought over my additions from the other thread but missed Monty Python's Flying Circus, which uses John Philip Sousa's "Liberty Bell March" (as did the TV show).

Post by Rorthron »

I have tried to make the presentation of information in the earlier list more consistent, by roughly following the format that @Alessandro used: Composer/artist, title with opus/catalogue number, movement. Where there is a well-known English title I have used that, otherwise I have tried to use the title in the original language.

I’ve done my best on these, but I may have made some errors, so please correct them, if you see them.

There are some entries, marked with an asterisk, that need more information.

The list doesn’t include the information in the last post.

Mutant Monty: Edvard Grieg, Piano Concerto in A minor op. 16, I. Allegro molto moderato
Black Lamp (AY only): unknown, almost surely an original composition by Tim Follin; rhythm and chords progression resemble those of "Greensleeves" (trad.)

The instructions for Specventure show this list of tunes (enhanced by me):
1 - Ludwig van Beethoven, Für Elise op. 59
2 - Edvard Grieg, "The Morning" from Peer Gynt
3 - John Williams, theme from Star Wars
4 - "Yankee Doodle" (trad.)
5 - Aleksandr Borodin, Polynesian Dance
6 - Antonio Vivaldi, Concerto No. 1 in E major op. 8, RV 269, "Spring", from The Four Seasons
7 - Piotr I. Tchaikovskij, excerpt from The Swan Lake op. 20
8 - Johann Sebastian Bach, Choral "Wohl mir, daß ich Jesum habe" from Cantata BWV 147
9 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Symphony n. 40 in G minor KV 550, I. Allegro

> Olli and Lissa: unknown
Again, we can safely rule this out, since the ear-wrecking "music" at the beginning does not sound like classical at all (most probably it's an original composition).

Speaking of dubious national anthems, I remember that Alternative World Games, not a particularly memorable title - in fact it's one of those games so crap that I even took some sort of liking to it - includes a scene at the beginning where a parrot picks up a record with its beak and places it on a gramophone, playing a short tune according to the nationality chosen by the player. Nationalities are not in alphabetical order by the way!

Opening: Aaron Copland, Fanfare For The Common Man (although it sounds more similar to Emerson, Lake and Palmer's progressive rock rendition)
- Real national anthems:
Belgium - François Van Campenhout, "La Brabançonne"
France - Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle, "La Marseillaise"
Japan - Akimori Hayashi/Yoshiisa Oku/Franz Eckert (arr.), "Kimi ga yo"
Switzerland - Alberik Zwyssig, "Schweizerpsalm/Cantique suisse/Salmo svizzero/Psalm svizzer"
USA - John Stafford Smith, "The Star-Spangled Banner"
FRG - Franz Joseph Haydn, "Das Lied der Deutschen"
- False national anthems:
Canada - Michael Palin/Terry Jones/Fred Tomlinson, "The Lumberjack Song"
Great Britain - Thomas Arne, "Rule Britannia", from Alfred
Greece - Mikis Theodorakis, "Sirtaki" from the soundtrack for Zorba The Greek by Michael Cacoyannis
Italy - Eduardo Di Capua/Alfredo Mazzucchi, " 'O Sole mio"
USSR - Melchior Frank, "Lauriger Horatius" (probably meant to represent "The Red Flag", hymn of the UK Labour Party)
Spain - G. Bizet, refrain of "Votre toast, je peux vous le rendre", from Carmen, act II
Sweden - The Swedish chef theme from The Muppet Show
- Unknown:
Austria
Brazil (a samba)
Holland
Hungary
Israel (already heard it but cannot remember exactly what it is)

More examples come from another Gremlin Graphics title, Tour De Force, not a masterpiece, but neither a waste of code like AWG. Back in the day I even completed it.

Japan - unknown
France - Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle, "La Marseillaise"
USA - John Stafford Smith, "The Star-Spangled Banner"
Israel - "Arabian riff" (trad.)
Russia - Ivan Larionov, "Kalinka"

Finally, @Rorthron please take notice that Sophia and Sophia II are in reversed order in the list :)
