If there was 'one song' that you think reflects the our TI-99/4A hobby what would it be?  

 

If and when one is selected, I wonder if it's possible to stuff it into an UberGROM with a static photo?

It might be nice as background at Fest West this year as people arrive.

May 14, 1984 - Wake Me Up Before You Go (Wham!). Whimsical, yet perfectly describes what we all were feeling when TI abandoned the (home) computer market without much warning!

Tunnels of Doom!  Such a great opening theme. A friend and I used to play that game for hours on end BITD. Come to think of it though, mostly listened to 80's music while playing since there wasn't much else to it besides sound effects. Stuff like Devo, Split Enz, Talking Heads and The Cars. 

 

Really tough to pick just one. So many great tunes from games, etc. that you find memories of. Be nice to have a "Greatest Hits" compilation stuffed into one cart! And could be set to play each song once before repeating.   :love:

The only "Song" of the TI99 is the Beep Sound that you can hear when computer powered on :D :D :D

 

;) ok, now seriously i remember that some years ago, Opry99er here on Ataryage composed a real song for Atariage group and all 99ers enthusiasts.

That's true!  I dinged Owen as soon as I saw this thread. Perhaps he will make an appearance.

Now that's what I am talking about.. 80's computer graphics.  Use the TI to do the computer voice.  Addition, Subtraction and Multiplication

 

BOOM!

The William Tell overture and medley of public domain ditties that play during Blasto.

 

Can't think of another "theme" from another game/system that is quite like it.

Ding!

And I would go with the ToD theme by Hank Mishkoff. Most iconic TI music in all my memories.

I can't hear the song Derezzed without thinking of all those hours spent listening to cassette files loading.

From 1979 the year the TI99/4A hit the shelves.

As this sample shows the varied tracks per instrument it would be a perfect choice for the use.
