Default First "advanced" composition in video-games

I was wondering what would be the first "advanced" musical compositions in video-games?
By advanced i mean non linear in the non melodic elements, like drums, bass, etc... also maybe some "humanly freestyle" melody.

To me, it would be the Paperboy arcade tune, 1984.

Do you know of something else, maybe older, matching this description?

Next would probably be Rob Hubbard's work on C64, like Monty on the Run, 1985.

[EDIT] But Martin Galway's Comic Bakery could also be featured, 1984.
