T Station is one of the 10 different songs that are played during a regular game. It is the first track that is played. The tracks are played in sequence starting from Shamburger and ending with Tazer, at which point the list starts over from the beginning.

A MIDI version of the song was used in the demo version of the game. In the MIDI audio track, it was used as the fifth track out of eight total. These were played in sequence starting from Shamburger and ending with Tazer, at which point the list started over from the beginning.

Stephen Rippy considers it one of his best works in the game.

T Station is one of the 8 different songs that are played during a regular game in the demo version. It is the seventh track that is played. The tracks are played in sequence starting from Case in Point: Paste and ending with Neep Ninny-Bod, at which point the list starts over from the beginning.

The full version of the game had unique music, but since the MIDI files were only included with the demo version of the game it was not seen as being worth the time to create new MIDI files for the expansion.
