My favorites are the 80's Van/Truck cue and the think music used for Cover Up/Check Game, etc.

The Bean Stalker is always a good one as well!

My favorite has to be Showcase #2. Make me think of an old fashioned train in motion. I always enjoy hearing it.

It's gotta be the MGHS theme. Another good one is "Car Slide," which was first heard on The New Price Is Right.

While not a prize cue, the think music in That's Too Much! will forever be a favorite of mine.

from the classic suite, i'd say The Feud (it becoming a main theme in its own right for Family Feud probably has something to do with it for me, though)

The Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour theme, The Beanstalker, Amen, Brother Herbert, Starcrossed, and Phaser are pretty high on my list

MGHS Hour theme, the Clearance Sale think music, Bean Stalker, Fortune Hunter intro/prize cue, Bonkers cue, and, of course, the Push Over/Line Ďem Up think music.
2,017 days until I am re-eligible to be a contestant on The Price Is Right!

No longer a Push Over!

The Concentration '73 car cue. Far and away my favorite.
Most of the '74 and '76 cue package. Hard to pinpoint which ones.

Clowning Around (the Easy as 123 cue).

It's not even really a Price is Right cue, it's some stock piece that's been used in commercials, but it's dopey and fun and fits the game well and gives it a ton of personality.

Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

The Beanstalker, Big Banana and the Match Game-Hollywood Squares Hour theme.

I like that they've been reusing the Match Game-Hollywood Squares Hour theme as a car cue on occasion, e.g. the most recent playing of Golden Road. Wish they brought back some more classic cues to the mix, though.

I badly miss Cue 200A and become sad whenever the Race Game Curtain is rising with some inferior music.

As far as the more recent ones, Passing Lane is a highlight.
