This was the first game to have a soundtrack by legendarily-prolific composer George Alistair "the Fat Man" Sanger, a hook-up facilitated by his being roommates with the brother of Blue Sky Ranger David Warhol (here credited with "Sound Effects/Additional Music").

In honour of this humble beginning, in 2000 the Fat Man composed and performed a surf arrangement of the theme to this game, "Surfin’ on Thin Ice."
