There's this movie theater I go to, and One day I went, I could've sworn I heard Oxygene IV. The next time I went back with some friends, I realized that it was coming from the coin-operated toy machine with the claw- you know, the rigged ones that usually don't work because of the angle of the glass? Next time I see a movie I'll bring my camera along to take a video of the Oxygene-playing claw machine. Has anyone else seen anything like this?

When I heard it, I was like "Oh my god, the toy machine is playing JMJ's Oxygene IV!" And everybody, even the dude behind the snack bar looked at me. XD

They have been around for quite a few years - I remember a thread on the old defunct jarre@clic.net forum about this. :D

I recall hearing Oxy4 back in the 80s on a arcade machine while on a day trip to Blackpool.

Or perhaps the grip itself is too slippery or soft until enough tries has been carried out to pay the costs of the damn prices. :fine:

I remember hearing oxygene 4 on those claw machines ever since I was a child on holiday in spain (around 95ish) now I hear it all the time when the fair comes to town. Its quite common place.

How it wound up on those machines is what i would like to know.
