The original Bruce Lee Theme plays at the game's menu rather than at the game's title screen the way most subsequent ports were designed. The song loops forever. The rest of the game is devoid of music, but it does have sound effects, a common practice for the low-powered Commodore. It is track 1 in the SID file, and is played on the 6581.

The Bruce Lee Theme plays at the title screen in the Atari 8-bit game. Despite being a port, the music for the Atari has a slightly higher fidelity than the Commodore 64 version. The song also is played at a noticeably slower tempo than the original. The rest of the game is devoid of music, but it does have sound effects. The song is track 1 in the SAP file, and it is rendered on the POKEY. The song is hard-coded to loop twice before stopping.

The song is hard-coded to loop twice before stopping. Since the game doesn't have a frame-limiter, the tempo of music is dependent on the speed of your computer.
