We now move on to Music 2 from the primitive RTS game, Utopia: The Creation of a Nation. This track starts off slow and my brother and I used to give it the nickname "Andy the Elephant" - not quite sure why but maybe the track is extra funny if you imagine it being sung to those lyrics: "An-Dy the e-le-phant". No? Oh well. Anyway the track plods along for awhile until it picks up at around 1:50 in this video and starts to sound like a funky dance version of Chopin's Funeral March. Well, it doesn't sound very enticing the way I described it just there but have a listen anyway :). Like other tracks in the soundtrack, it fits the game perfectly, as the music tends to build up the tempo and complexity - just as a space colony would.
This track is aka "Vega III" on the SNES version of the game.
