Start Music - Xevious
Start Music is the name of the song when you start a level in Xevious. The song was written by Yuriko Keino, and it was one of (if not her) first work at Namco.
The title comes from the album "Xevious (Game Sound Effect)" album on iTunes, released by Namco Bandai Games.
The music was arranged by Nobuyuki Ohnogi, one of Namco's main sound composers, shortly before he left the company. The music is arranged note-for-note, making the NES version have a good arrangement.
The music plays a half-step lower on the Commodore 64's SID chip.
