Toccata and Fugue In D Minor
Composer Johann Sebastian Bach
Released 1703-1707

One of the most popular organ pieces ever composed is Toccata and Fugue In D Minor (BWV 565), traditionally ascribed to Johann Sebastian Bach, though some scholars disagree. This particular tune is often seen when a game calls for a more spooky mood due to the song's appearance in horror-related pop-culture.

King's Quest 2 - DOS - Dracula's Castle.png

You'll hear Toccata and Fugue In D Minor upon entering Dracula's castle on the island in the center of the poisoned lake. Despite Dracula being a classic villain, he's disappointingly easy to vanquish in this game.

Both versions of the tune have been recorded, the 3 voice version and the PC speaker version.


Rough Ranger (ARC)

Gyruss (NES)

Battle of Olympus (NES)

Monster Bash (DOS)

Pieces of Toccata and Fugue In D Minor can be heard at the beginning of the song Bach Bash, but rest of the song sounds original.
