And another vote for Pole Position.

Yeah - both these.

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

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.

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..!

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 chime made by a number of the Atari machines when you inserted a coin.

This will seem like an odd one. As my formative arcade years were the early to mid 90’s all the arcades on the seafront were crammed with a coin pusher machine that had the chorus from the song ring my bell on repeat.

So for me its things like scud race, lost world, prop cycle and time crisis attracts with ring my bell playing over the top.

Nearly all of those mentioned ie, robocop, shinobi, plus.
“Do mai” I think that is how it sounded, from pocket gal.

Also all of the coin up sounds especially the one generated by a pokey.

All the Atari games from 84-87 ish, had the same sounds for inserting a coin and used some of the same generic sounds on their games, love all that. Also the opening rift for ghosts and goblins, the music when you complete a stage on roadblasters, the speech from Star Wars, the thumping bass from wardner, the speech from the original street fighter. Still quote the original street fighter now when taking the piss with my brother.
“You’ve got a lot to learn before you beat me”

Double Dragon when you coin it up plus the start of the game play music, just wasn't the same on the home computer,
