What a treat this is.

Top Gear was one of my favourite games on the SNES. The SNES wasn't even mine, it was borrowed, and luckily this amazing game was included in the borrowment. It's not an easy game. But it's a racing game. I used to spend hours on it.

That's a screenshot of the game. I remember playing that track. The frustration of not having turned quickly enough and just ploughing through all those trees was terrible.

But the music was something that stayed with me. I was so glad that I found it again. The bleeps and arpeggios and synthesised wonders of this game's soundtrack are a joy to hear.

This is the one I remember the most. It's the first track. People say it sounds like 'Bliss' by Muse, but 'Bliss' by Muse has a lot to answer for. They're standing on the shoulders of giants.

Isn't it wonderful?

And if you liked that, here are the other tracks from the game.

Title Track
Track 2
Track 3
Track 4

All of them were added to YouTube by this guy.
