The song serves as one of four in-game tunes. This version of the song is the same exact arrangement as the Arcade version. However, the song plays in a slightly better fidelity due to the triangle channel, and the addition of the noise channel. Interestingly, most of the bass intro is omitted from this version; only the last two of the original eight bars are included.
