Choicest VGM - VGM #179 - Frontier: Elite II - Ride of the Valkyries

Composed by: Richard Wagner
Arranged by: Dave Lowe

A track that's most commonly associated with the Vietnam war movie Apocalypse Now, this track also makes an appearance on the Frontier: Elite II soundtrack and - well you look at that? It's not by Mussorgsky but by Richard Wagner instead ;).

Oh and where did I get the music? I recorded it directly from the game audio (using the Adlib/Sound Blaster option) while running the game through DOSBox. I did find MIDI files of the DOS version's music online but they just weren't the same as how I remembered. So there you have it :)

Thanks to Dave Lowe for composing such a memorable soundtrack!
