Featuring Final Fantasy 6/7/8 and diverse.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
for the semifinals of the Final Fantasy month, I decided to do another round of outtakes, that means findings that have some similarity to certain game songs, but not good enough to justify a full entry. I regard them as inspiration for further search. In exchange, I address several games to make up for it.
1) Final Fantasy 6 - Wedding Waltz
'My Pink Half Of The Drainpipe' by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band (1968):
2) Final Fantasy 7 - Electric de Chocobo
The Chantays, Pipeline ( 1963 ):
3) Final Fantasy 8 - Eyes on Me
Richard Strauss "Tod und Verklärung" has a leitmotif in its last path that resembles the first six notes of the Eyes on Me main section with a slight mismatch in the last note. I think there may be a better match later in the song, but I cannot find it at the moment:
4) Final Fantasy 7 - JENOVA
Foetus - Theme From Pigdom Come (1985):
5) Final Fantasy 7 - Cid's theme
There are some songs that feel like the long lost backing track to that section:
Akira Takasaki - Show Me Something Good (1982):
Cinderella - Heartbreak Station (1990):
Next sunday will be the grand finale of the Final Fantasy month featuring a major song from the series.
