The booklet does have tracklisting somewhere. If you just put your game into a CD player and play any tracks after 2, then you'll get the songs from the game. Flick through them and you should find it. I think I know which one you mean and I could go and have a look for you - but have a look yourself, it'll be a nice suprise!

Right, there a few Ska type songs! Are you in the UK? Cause the song I'm thinking of was also on a heart advert (some guy playing football on a Saturday and then in the pub and then ending up in hospital, if I remember rightly!)

Just found the tracklisting too! The one I'm thinking of is Return of Django the Upsetters. Let us know and I'll upload it for ya!

Hmmm :-(
sadly no lol thats not the one i was thinking of....i just looked that up on itunes and its not that one....

The one im thinking of has a high pitched what sounds like a Hammond Organ in it playing the chorus......its hard to describe in words how it sounds....but the main chorus sounds kinda like 1 2 3 4 in a decending scale fairly quickly (4 times over) followed by 3 stacatto (dunno about spelling) notes that sound the same :-S

(sorry for going on and on there) hehe i hope u can understand....

where is the track listing??

Thank you so much for taking the time to look tho! :-D

I have the game, but it's one of these "Classics" releases so there's no booklet...

I don't know what SKA means, so I can't help you.

Ska is a jamaican music style born in the 60s: it's fast, "in levare", with the "classical" guitar "chicka chicka" (ok, it's not clear...) and with horns (generally sax tenor, trumpet and trombone); it's a happy style and you can't resist jumping, smiling, and dancing with this kind of music; from ska it came up the rocksteady,that is slower, but with even better "orchestrations" and the well famous reggae,slower and sometimes even without horns.

i strongly suggest to try something from Skatalites to appreciate ska, or something from Bad Manners, Madness....or other 100 bands :)

it's something totally different from Queen music...one of the few styles Queen never explored.

It was inside the instructions manual advertising the accompanying soundtrack.
