Phils Game Music Similarities - Outtakes #2


Tags: Zelda 3, Mega Man 2, Final Fantasy VI


I've decided to bring some more Outtakes since I think they are at least worth a look:

1) Zelda 3 - A Link To The Past (1991):

Can - Aumgn (1971):

Maybe a little fat fetched, but I think it demonstrates the athmospheric style of the tune.

2) Mega Man 2 - Wily Stage 1 (1988):

I don't think I have to introduce this one. One of the most famous final stage themes in oldschool gaming.

Sadly, I haven't found a song yet that matches it exactly. On the other hand, I found tons of songs that have what I would call the "vibe" or "lost backing track" for it. Most of them 70s prog rock or disco. Thus, I limit myself to posting the two best samples:

Hawkwind - Paradox (1974):

Note: I recommend to hear this song in full. Near the end the resemblance becomes uncanny.

Jessica Williams - Queen of Fools (1979):

Maybe not as good as the Hawkwind one, but still good to know I think:

3) Final Fantasy 6 - Devil's Lab (1994):

Some people suspect this one to have been inspired by Queens "We Will Rock You" due to the oomph-oomph sound that closes a verse. However, I think I dound something slightly better in the form of the "I Just Wanna Make Love to You" version from Muddy Waters (1968):

Next week back to normal schedule unless more requested.
