John Elway's Quarterback comprises of a few tunes. Most of them are just short jingles that play during certain events in the game. However, it should be verified whether or not these were originally used in the arcade game. The only known song shared with the arcade version is the Team Select music, which was written and composed by Sam Powell. The NES version's audio was handled by David Wise, who had to learn the music by ear. He then entered a series of hexadecimal numbers as notation into Rare's audio driver.

Because this is such an early title for the NES, there are no staff credits. We have contacted David Wise who has confirmed working on the music and sound for all of Rare's NES games. According to Wise, Chris Stamper programmed the sound driver. There are no credits, since most NES Rare games had no credits at all, possibly preventing staff poaching.
The arcade version's credits can be accessed by waiting through the title demos.
The NSF file only contains the nine songs and no sound effects. The recording was made in VirtuaNSF. Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
