Choicest VGM - VGM #141 - The Ur-Quan Masters - Melnorme - Turning Purple

Composed by: Eric Berge
Remixed by: Riku Nuottajarvi

This is a remix of the music which plays whenever you meet the information and technology merchants of the galaxy known as the Melnorme. Apparently colour is very important to them and whenever they're conducting trade they like to turn the colour of their ship's interior to purple, hence the name of this remix. I love it how the remix manages to sound like a backing track for an 80s informercial and even includes the sound of cash registers around 1:43, which is totally appropriate considering their reputation.

Special thanks to The Precursors for remixing the classic Star Control II tracks and making them available for download.
