Title is the title song of Garrison. It was highlighted by most Amiga gamers and reviewers, although a few thought that it didn't fit with the fantasy theme. Some were also reminded of other songs, especially Money for Nothing by Dire Straits.

Ramiro Vaca translated the complete Amiga song to the SID chip and even composed new sections from 0:28.74 to 0:43.11 and from 0:57.48 to end. He used Soundmonitor with the driver and drum samples from Danger Freak and The Great Giana Sisters, making it his only C64 game song not made using TFMX Editor. The guitar instruments are unique.

It plays to the title screen until you press a key or use the joystick in port 1. It was recorded from VICE 3.2 with the model 6581 (reSID). On the 8580, the drums are much quieter. In the rip, it is track 1.
