Vultan's Theme (Attack of the Hawk Men)
Vultan's Theme (Attack of the Hawk Men) was composed by Freddie Mercury and the rock band Queen for the 1980 movie, Flash Gordon. The tune's popularity caused it to be "borrowed" by a couple composers of videogame music.

Like the arcade game, Vultan's Theme plays when you touch an energy pod in the Atari 800 game.
Like the arcade game, Vultan's Theme plays when you touch an energy pod. The music fidelity is notably lower for the Atari 2600.
The Atari 5200 port is much closer to the arcade version than the Atari 2600 release, and the tune matches up with the arcade release quite closely. Vultan's Theme plays every time you touch an energy box, and each time the game begins.
The title music of Apache Strike (C64) borrows heavily from Vultan's Theme.
