I think it’s time for another nostalgia fest. I know we all have different tastes in music, but I reckon over the years there have been a few great songs featured on F1 game soundtracks. Not only the epic 90’s guitar shedding of F1 1995 and 1997, but even the odd licensed song by big names, some nice ambient stuff etc. Anyway, if you can find any clips on YouTube post the links up here. The more obscure the better.
I personally used to really like the music on F1 Career Challenge by EA. There were only 4 songs, and they’re all electronic stuff so they won’t be to everyone’s liking, but almost a decade on I still love them:

This is an awesome thread idea, Ned. Although, I really couldn’t stand F1CC’s music, if I’m being honest! :P
Here’s a few of my favourites:
Formula 1 (PS1): Joe Satriani – Back to Shalla-Bal (WARNING: Your face WILL melt)
Formula 1 ’97 (PS1): Intro Sequence Music
Formula 1 ’98 (PS1): Main Menu Music
F1 2002 (PS2): Apollo 440 – Blackbeat
F1 2010 (PS3): The Qemists feat. Jenna G – On the Run
Mag you legend!!! Joe Satriani….
God that song has been stuck in my head for 15 years without any identity.
F1 2010 – The Qemists feat. Jenna G – On the Run
and Pendulum – Watercolour
I think the best F1 game music so far
F1 2006 – only one song in the whole game that i can’t remember the name of
not sure if this counts, but this is the intro for F12000 on PC.. the first game i ever got: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeNV1yuMAq4
Phat Planet by Leftfield: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKRESe23x4U
Featured on F1 2000, but is perhaps better known for the epic if rather odd Guinness advert with the surfing horses: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zff9hVH3ptY&feature=related
And Magffrey- don’t worry, I forgive you. But I still love it!
Butterflies and Hurricanes – Muse
Not sure if it’s your taste or not but Tinie Tempah did a wicked freestyle over Phat Planet before he became famous.
Don’t forget, but if you still have various PlayStation CD’s lying around, popping them in your CD player often throws up some interesting results. Formula 1’s entire soundtrack will play, I do believe.
Tinie Tempah definitely ain’t my taste, I hate all the stuff I hear from him in the charts… and yet I really liked that! I always assumed from his crappy pop songs that he was just another untalented chartfiller
Oh, Mag I just noticed you posted La Source… that is perhaps my favourite F1 song ever! Just love the guitar from 0.25 to 0.45, makes me want to get my own guitar out and try to learn… if only I wasn’t so lazy
Another great song from F1 2000: Placebo – Every You, Every Me
