The soundtrack for the Bubblegum Crisis 4: Revenge Road anime.

Actually written for highway combat involving armed cars and motorcycles.

Burning Highway!
Klaxons howling in the night sky.
Burning Highway!
Dreams burst into flame.
Burning Highway!
Run with anger until it shines

(Though if you're doing a trucker game, you got to you use McCall's Convoy...)

I'd like to add that the arcade Spy Hunter version of Peter Gunn is longer and has I think three other solos that are in addition to the one or two that are in the original version.

Listening to it a few years back, it is rather canned and somewhat simple sounding, but it's still fairly dynamic in spite of being simply a synthesizer track.

As per my previous post, good music can start off a game, but then is best to play out and fade away as the action gets a little more involved. For some reason background TV noise doesn't bother me or anyone I've ever gamed with.

Always look on the bright side of life by Epic Idel. Good enough for the olympics, good enough for carwars.

Add to the mix "I'll be Holding on" by Hans Zimmer and Will Jennings sung by Gregg Allman.

Just the song to be listening to when the character is driving down a long long road, and a certain fatalistic mentality sets in as the miles pass by one at a time, here now, gone in a second...
