A Kind of Magic
A Kind of Magic is the first track of the Queen album with the same name. The song was composed by Roger Taylor from a line in the movie that was cut out of the theatrical release. While the song was not actually featured in the first Highlander movie (only partially in the titles), some of the samples were used in the song. The track is still closely tied to the Highlander franchise because it is used in Highlander II: The Quickening and the Highlander TV series.
Highlander (C64)Martin Galway arranged A Kind of Magic for the Commodore adaptation of the movie Highlander. The song continues on repeat through the entirety of the awful game. Galway said it took him two days to complete the cover. Martin Galway did an amazing job accurately porting the tune, even including the guitar solo from the original. This version has loops.
It sounds the same on every SID chip. However, starting at 0:20.75, the bass on the third channel randomly clicks. The reason is based on the very fast pulse width modulation.
This song can be found on the Project: Galway album. It is the first and only track in the SID file.
In this version, A Kind of Magic plays to menu screen.

Although no game features lyrics, the original song had them (sung by Freddie Mercury).
It's a kind of magic It's a kind of magic A kind of magic One dream one soul one prize one goal One golden glance of what should be It's a kind of magic One shaft of light that shows the way No mortal man can win this day It's a kind of magic The bell that rings inside your mind Is challenging the doors of time It's a kind of magic The waiting seems eternity The day will dawn of sanity Is this a kind of magic It's a kind of magic There can be only one This rage that lasts a thousand years Will soon be done This flame that burns inside of me I'm here in secret harmonies It's a kind of magic The bell that rings inside your mind Is challenging the doors of time It's a kind of magic It's a kind of magic The rage that lasts a thousand years Will soon be will soon be Will soon be done This is a kind of magic There can be only one This rage that lasts a thousand years Will soon be done-done Magic - it's a kind of magic It's a kind of magic Magic magic magic magic Ha ha ha, it's magic It's a kind of magic
