If it was possible, I would vote for JB Le Daron singing with piano. To be listened to religiously.
An Amstrad PPC640 computer with only a beeper is not good at all for sound, except if you use a parrallel adaptator such as the Covox4 or the OPL3LPT. I will test it later when Mod Master XT par FreddyV will support it.
But there is still a possibility to have the best sound possible for a msdos computer by using the DB25 serial port (with a DB9 adaptator) and a DB9 to Mini-DIN 8 pins cable (DBK-103 by Hosa Technology) connected to a SC-55st Roland expander presented by LGR on Youtube.
In this video the sound only starts at 35 seconds so click on this link to avoid the start of the video which only shows me launching the msdos gsplay utility.
8-Bit Keys has made an interesting video showing the structure of the music played during the high score table of Commando, which he is playing on a Yamaha PSR-32 keyboard (1987).
