Choicest VGM - VGM #211 - Global Domination - Select Players Screen



Soundtrack composed by: Christopher J. Denman

Hooray! Here's a track that isn't a rearrangement of a famous piece of classical music! Well, at least I think it is, since my knowledge of classical music isn't that great. However, it does have a 3/4 time signature and sounds a bit like a waltz, so who knows, maybe it is? Anyway, this music happens to play on the "Select Players" screen where you pick the AI opponents (or human opponents) you wish to challenge in your fight for global-global-global domination-tion-tion....!!!! Opponents available include:

- Abraham Lincoln
- Queen Victoria
- Otto von Bismarck
- Napoleon Bonaparte
- The Caveman
- General Custer
- Julius Caesar
- Genghis Khan
- Henry V

The tune is a favourite of mine as it's so catchy I often find myself whistling the theme while I work.

The music was recorded through DOSBOX and consequently this is DOSBOX's emulation of OPL3 I believe, the FM synthesis sound chip used in a lot of old Soundblaster cards. Also, since the track is really short, I actually ended up making it play the passage three times before fading it out.
