NHL '99(PC)

The soundtrack for NHL '99 is composed by Jeff van Dyck, along with a trimmed down version of Noise Therapy's song "Down" for the Menu Track #5.  I obtain the tracks from a CD of the PC version of the game and there are seven tracks, five are Menu Themes and the other two are Qualify and Awards Themes. Out of curiosity, I downloaded the Nintendo 64 version of NHL '99 ROM to see if the music was the same and found it has a different Introduction Theme—the PC version has a David Bowie song, which I omitted—and an extra Menu Theme so I included both of those. There isn't much to the titles, I pretty much just left them as they were labeled "Menu Tracks 1-5."  From what I've read, a couple of the tracks were also used in later installments of the series(NHL '06 and NHL '09).  I was surprised that the music is actually pretty darn good(I mean, an old NHL game having good original music?). I'm really diggin' the Menu Track 4, it has some catchy riffs, and the Main Menu Track for the N64 version is also a really good song.

And there we have it, both FLAC and MP3 versions are uploaded so enjoy!

Glad you like it! I remember a big part of the reason I played this game was the menu music. As a quiet and introverted teenager, I used to simulate seasons for hours (never playing a game, just simulating), fantasizing about a Blackhawks Stanley Cup. I achieved that in this game multiple times, and then it finally happened in reality three times this decade. Thanks for uploading this fairly obscure request!

No problem. I have plenty of those memories myself with other games growing up. Glad to hear you're enjoying it!
