The majority of the game's music was composed by Lee Jackson, although Bobby Prince contributed a few songs as well. Since the game uses MIDI music, you'll get a high-quality sound if you use a decent MIDI device. The game consists of a lot of jazzy tunes, as well as a few ambient tracks, and a couple more comical songs.

Three of the game's tracks that are arranged from classical pieces. "God Rest Ye, Deadly Gentlemen" is obviously from "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen" which plays if you launch the game on Christmas. "Music For the Funeral of Queen Mary" is from "The Queen's Funeral March" by Henry Purcell. "Adagio For Strings and Organ" was composed by Tomaso Albinoni.
