The Windows Welcome music (also known as the title music) plays on the final stage of installing - in the Out-of-box experience program. Many sources credit Brian Eno as the composer of this tune, however this information is false. It was in fact composed by Stan LePard, and it was previously used in Internet Starter Kit 3. Sadly, he passed away.
The two MIDIs that appeared from 3.1 to 2000 first appeared in ME, but are often attributed to XP.
The song Flourish is interesting as it is played in a 5/4 time signature.
