Get ready to taste some DiRT!

Today's track is the Main Theme from Colin McRae Rally 3

Hey guys! This song is available for download! Read the article to find out where and how!

The Colin McRae Rally games are a long running series way back from the PSX era, currently the series is known the DiRT series (Though in PAL regions, it still has Colin McRae's name on the title). There were five CMR games in total and two DiRT games (with a third one in development) and all of them pretty good. The CMR series offer a really good rally simulation with an arcade feel. Probably my favorite racing games ever, but I'm not here to talk about the games, I'm here to talk about the music.

The CMR series is not notorious for its music, but one track really stands out and it is the Main Theme for CMR3. It is pretty similar to The Chemical Brothers' "Star Guitar", which many have even confused with (even yours truly). It's a really good song though, it starts slow and then the beats start to pick up the song, like a trance-styled song. Probably one of the few songs I let play while the attract video plays, considering that the video is pretty well synched with the song itself.

Also, as a random note, the song doesn't have a real title, it is just the "main theme" (the makers of the song, Octagon Music, told me so via email a long time ago when I contacted them). Curious, huh?

If you want to download this song and hear other songs from the series, go to www.octagonmusic.com/games
