I just found something interesting. Forgive me if it has already been said here before. I have been listening to a lot of Aphex Twin lately and I came across a startling discovery. It sounds like the person, Mark Morgan if I am not mistaken, that made the music for Fallout and Fallout 2 took some of Aphex twins music and changed it A LITTLE BIT and added it into the game.
Here are some examples of this:

Listen to the song "Windowsill" by Aphex Twin and compare it to the "World Map" song in Fallout. They are VERY alike, almost exactly the same.
Other songs by Aphex Twin to listen to and compare are:
"Grey Stripe" Compare this song to the "Desert" song.
"Grass" Compare this song to the song played after you beat Fallout 2 and the credits are being displayed. The two songs are almost EXACTLY the same.
"Tessels" Compare this song to the song "City of the Dead" (the song that plays while you are in Necropolis). Take out the repetitive background noise that plays constantly in the Aphex Twin song and compare the horn like noise that plays periodically. This song can also be found on the Aphex Twin album titled "Selected Ambient Works Volume II".
The intro song in the movie "The Stand" by Steven King sounds almost exactly like the song played in Redding. Thanks to Transfixion for this find.
While these might not sound nearly as close as "Windowsill" is to the "World Map" song I find these to be pretty close. Also, this is a incomplete list. Now before you go off and say something like "Duh, of course they sound alike." I know. I just think it is really cool.
