My favorite would have to be the theme song from Monkey Island. I actually still get a eargasim when I hear that song. Also the theme songs for the diffrent aliens in Star Control 2 are just fantastic they really give you an impression of each one.

The intro theme to Turrican II. Chris Hulsbeck was pumping out an incredible amount of good tunes during the Turrican series. I just bought his latest album on iTunes, though, and was so disappointed by how generic it was.

For me, the video game with the best theme song has got to be Spy Hunter (they used the theme from Peter Gunn). There is just something about a Henry Mancini tune.

Dragonhammer has posted up some pure spun gold. All of Paul Ruskay's stuff for Homeworld was gold and Frank Klepacki's C&C tunes (someone else posted Hell March) were awesome, too. It's tempting to post up some old Daglish/Hubbard/Galway C64 stuff but instead I'm going to go with an overlooked classic that had amazing music throughout:

Don't know if it's 'Best Evah' but I found this music terrifically evocative questing around Northrend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJHNq...e_gdata_player

I loved this game in the 90's. It did borrow heavily from a group of movies that might be familiar.....
