Oldies are still Goldies

It was the storyline which attracted me in the first place, then the utopian universe. Then the graphics. On top of that – the soundtrack which in the 2nd installment of the game really delivers. Highly recommended!

The Boogie Man – Todd Rollins & his Orchestra
How Much Is That Doggie In The Window? – Patti Page
20th Century Blues – Noel Coward
Nightmare – Artie Shaw & His New Music
Daddy, Won’t You Please Come Home? – Annette Hanshaw
Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition – Kay Kyser & His Orchestra (now that’s some fine title, isn’t it? Imagine going on a killing rampage with your game character while a ’40s male-choir is swinging happily on a repetitive chorus going “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!“)
Dawn of a New Day – Horace Heidt & His Music Knights
Night and Day – Billie Holiday & Her Orchestra
My Heart Belongs To Daddy – Eddie Duchin & His Orchestra
Chasing Shadows – Quintette of the Hot Club of France
Jitterbug Waltz – Fats Waller & His Rhythm
I Cover The Waterfront – Connie Boswell
Mental Strain At Dawn – Jack Purvis, trumpet solo, with rhythm accompaniment
Bei Mir Bist Du Schon – Benny Goodman & His Orchestra, with vocal by
Martha Tilton

The Trouble With Me is You – Red McKenzie
The Skeleton In The Closet – Putney Dandridge
We Saw The Sea – Fred Astaire
La Mer – Django Reinhardt

You can also listen to some of the tunes here, on Rapture Radio.
