For me its when you coin up Kung fu master , Haa Da, or however you would write it down and the little ditty when you press the start button and you read the scroll.

I have a Hang on cab next to two PP cabs and the attract mode of the Hang on blows PP out of the water, the knee high single speaker of PP is no match for the ear level twin speaker Sega monster!

But the PP beeps are unmistakable, you only need to hear a split second of it to know exactly what it is.

The start sound from Defender.

And another vote for Pole Position.

Track n Field/Hyper Sports muffled speech and other sound effects, Pac-Land! (de do dodo do.. omg that is still stuck in my head now). Hadoken (repeat a million times), 'warrior needs food badly/is about to die' and other Gauntlet effects, Wonder Boy's distinctive game over music.. Spy Hunter music..!

Thump..thump bass kick of Space Invaders. Pretty much everything back then had what sounded like 2 inch speakers, TVs included. SI cab with that deep bass "rocked"

Yep - the "druiiiing" of Defender sound also.

Gorf, a personal fave.

The level intro of Moon Cresta.

Yeah - both these.

In addition, the jingle that plays when a game of Scramble gets underway.
It's only original once.
