Pokémon Red and Blue contain a short unused song with no defined pointers. The song appears to be incomplete, and while it only has two channels whose octaves are set too high, it does have a defined song tempo, being relatively quick.
The full two-channel song was later found in the English source code leak, there known as Koukan, which translated to "Trade". Based on the commented out headers and the channel data itself, the track's channels were meant to be split between both Game Boys with one channel playing on one Game Boy and the other playing on the other. A similar behavior was ultimately used in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire for multiplayer Pokémon Contests.
