Passing Breeze (パッシングプリーズ Passhingu Purizu) is one of the three primary driving tunes you get to choose from on your car's radio in the racing game OutRun. Each of the three songs are composed by Hiroshi Kawaguchi and appear in the majority of the game's ports. Like the other two songs, Passing Breeze is a jazzy instrumental track which is slightly more mellow than the others. The official title can be read directly in the game.
The original arcade game renders Passing Breeze on the cabinet's YM2151 audio chip.
The song's internal number is 81.
Like the arcade game, Passing Breeze is one of the three songs that can be chosen on the radio at the start of the race. The song is rendered on the YM2149.
The DOS port plays Passing Breeze through the PC Speaker.
Passing Breeze on the Genesis is essentially the same song, but it has been rearranged to play on the YM2612, a weaker sound chip which yields lower fidelity music.
Different versions of Passing Breeze can be heard on the following albums:
