Some others to add to the list: mainly title screen only numbers:
Firefly - one of Fred Gray's most under-rated pieces in my opinion. Catchy melody and great lead make for a cracking effort.
Draconus - Adam Gilmore at his finest. The filter sweeps throughout the lead really give it some depth, and the second part where it speeds up the melody adds more too.
Turrican II - people often forget about this Markus Siebold tune because they're too busy pressing fire to play the great game, but when listening on a bug-free copy of the disk, there's a storming bassline which drives you on.
Rubicon - nice multispeed Jeroen Tel piece to get you in the mood, and really well composed too. _________________
Also the titletrack from Flimbo's Quest by Reyn Ouwehand (which they later used in Corruption, the discmag) was a pretty catchy tune.
Other titletracks that I loved were Tusker by Matt Gray, Turbo Charge by Odie and B-Bobs, again by Thomas Detert.
Phobia and Xenophone definately deserve to be mentioned aswell! _________________

Some great tunes mentioned so far; especially Rambo, Platoon, Thrust and Uridium. Nobody mention Parallax so far? One more title tune I enjoyed was Alleykat. Some might think it a bit cheesey but I always thought it rose to a nice climax. _________________
It's hard to say which one is best, since there are so many masterpieces out there. Platoon and Green Beret, as mentioned earlier, are two of them.
Super Dragon Slayer and, of course, Commando are two of the best if you ask me. _________________
