I am adding a list of corrections, just in case someone would like to know actually made those tunes.

Arcane - BSC
Commando - WEEE!
CPCT tune (interesting name :D ) - BSC
A flight - BSC
State of the art - BSC
Enigma - BSC
Hyper pig - BSC
Electric - BSC & WEEE!
Delta - BSC
Trantor, the last stormtrooper (this one is especially funny :-D) - David Whittaker (according to cpc-power.com)
Megaparty Demo 2 - BZYK (I guess, at least some ZX Spectrum guy)
Megaparty Demo 3 - BSC
Megaparty Demo 5 - BSC
Megaparty Demo 6 - BSC & WEEE!
(the numbering is wrong here, it's actually 7 "Megaparty Demo" tune, not just 6)

Anyone notice a pattern..?

yeah, I know, mostly covers. But still not made by Kangaroo.

Oh! When you said "half the videos" you weren't exaggerating, quite the opposite actually...


Yeah, that sucks indeed.


PS Trantor - loved that tune, I guess long before Kangaroo composed it :D

Also the emulator used to record them sucks sooo bad!


This video should be shot in the face and taken down!

I was always told that Weee's version of Rob Hubbard's conversion of COMMANDO (IN GAME TUNE) was the best on Amstrad! Personally, I still prefer Kangaroo's version even though Weee's is as close to the original SID version as a single AY chip could get! (BSC's SID-sound tracker and plAYcity could get closer, I guess! But they weren't available back in the day! ^_^)

It's all down to personal taste, after all! I prefer the clean, metallic sound of the AY chip to the harsh sound of the SID (at least as I remember it through my cousin's 80s TV, anyway... modern emulators do make the SID sound quite lovely! ^_^)

Sounds a bit harsh here and there but I like the idea a lot.

I sent a takedown request to youtube, because I am really annoyed by the fact that more than 50% of the tunes are incorrectly attributed to Kangaroo AND there's no way to tell the uploader so.
I would greatly apprectiate any of you guys would be willing to confirm my claims if YT asks for something like that.

That's a good idea, probably... can you share what you wrote?

That was quick.. Youtube has removed the video!

I mainly said what I also said here: That most of the tunes in the video were incorrectly attributed to Kangaroo and that I have made many of them.
It's a pity that it could not be done differently, though.

But there's still plenty of CPC music on youtube :)

Space Debris is, in my mind, the best song ever written on cpc.. Bsc and Soundtrakker for ever ! (And captain too, for the original song!)

Hi there!
Can anybody remember flying 3D vector figures demo with Johann Strauss waltz? I saw it in 1990 on Schneider CPC.
