Songs that you hear on the first level, they can set the tone or just by being good get you pumped for the game

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2voDYPK0_Zw
Best song in the game is also the first level
It's a shame I missed it the first play-through as I was adjusting to the combat and not really listening.

OH MY GOD
THIS SONG MAN
You couldn't have remained calm after hearing this while playing the very first next gen ace combat. It set the tone of the game, epic shit's going down
6's whole ost in general is god-tier

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyPT7b6ngmg
Awesome first song and got me into Hideki Naganuma


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqFbScj1mkM
This song made the first level much less annoying, and made me pay attention to the music the rest of the game after hearing how good it was compared to other snes games

I was a little disappointed when the best track in the whole game was also the first.

I'm going to go for Diablo Tristram Village music. That guitar!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N31gPX04Fpk

And also, R-Type on the Amiga. Ok, its not really the first level, but its the start of the game.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBJ0bzB2_FU

And finally, LED Storm, again on the Amiga. Loved it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80dFwuDe3TA

Ok, one more. Shadow of the beast on, hey, guess what :) The Amiga (yeah, i'm a fan)

Your'e right my mind immediately assumed that gusty garden was the first level (or at least that is the first level that I remember)

Most sonic games have great first level tunes, even the 3d games.

For me personally, I love Sonic 1's Green Hill zone. Probably too much nostalgia for it to be taken as a serious answer, but every time I hear it I smile.
