I just had to say this since I havent heard it anywhere else (maybe I suck at searching tho..). The pausemusic from Battletoads (NES) plays during some of the loadscreens in Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. I picked up a copy of this game today and one of the first things I noticed was this particular piece of music playing during my first loading with the Gamemasters face covering the screen. Maybe I´m just way to old school but I´m pretty sure its intentional since Battletoads is an old Rare Ltd. classic. Anyways, let me organize it for you so that those of you not yet aware of this awesome omage can share the joy ! Now its appearantly super hard to find even one clip where they show an actual loading screen so you have to crank up the volume on the clip I found. Its already very subtle even on a home theatre setup so listen closely on the loading screen.
Also, on a sidenote, did you know that a track from Donkey Kong Country 3 is actually called "Nuts & Bolts" ?
The Pausemusic from Battletoads
The Loadingmusic from Banjo Kazooie: N&B. (Skip to 00:06 - 00:20 and crank up your volume to hear it, it was the best I could find. Its REALLY low.)
if you cant hear it just start up Nuts & Bolts if you own a copy and pay some notice to it. There are several beats playing during loadingscreens but its only one of them that sounds like Battletoads so you might want to load several times.
