The Very Best Classic Video Game Songs

List Criteria: Please add only 8 or 16-bit video games with catchy and classic themes and songs.

A list of classic video game songs. RULE: Everything on this list must be pre-Playstation. This is a list that anyone can add to by clicking "Add Items" at the bottom of the page. I'll get us started. Video game themes used to mean something. You'd have to live with them through an entire level that you'd have to play through at least five times, so they used to write them a lot catchier than they do now.

What are the best classic video game songs? These themes, at least during the early days, were simple and didn't  Add your favorites and vote up the best ones. Vote down the worst. Which classic video game theme songs are your favorite?
