There are two different versions of The Entertainer in the Creative Music System files. While both of them contain meta data which list them as being covers of the Marvin Hamlisch arrangement for the movie The Sting, one appears to be more closely related to the original 1902 piano version by Scott Joplin. The file name of the piano version is EntertO.cms, while the one closer to the movie is named Entert.cms. They are both 1:44 in length, and both songs play through two SAA1099 chips.
