Title Origin Game Location

Title is the first song heard in To be on Top. Its title is unofficial and not to be confused with the main menu song, itself officially named Title Song.


As the opening theme of a disco game, the song is quite varied, like a medley.

The bass instrument first heard at 2:44 uses a low-pass filter.

The driver outputs the song to the SID chip and was recorded doing so within VICE 3.2 with the model 6581 (ReSID) and the filter bias 180, although it is unconfirmed how close it is to what the arranger heard. It is track 1 in the rip.

The conversion is largely accurate, clearer and more heavyish than emotional. The effects at 0:05 and 0:15 are missing and of the chords at 3:01 and 3:57, only the lowest notes remain.

The driver outputs the song to the YM2149F chip and was recorded doing so within Steem SSE 3.9.4.
