Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #75 - You Have the Guts


Featuring Mega Man 1, Quicksilver Messenger Service and others.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

Megaman month has begun and we use the opportunity to go right back to where it all started: The very first Megaman game from 1987. This one has already been addressed several times in this blog:

Title Screen - https://www.destructoid.com/--539760.phtml#post

Fireman/Cutman stage - https://www.destructoid.com/--555292.phtml#post

Wily Stage 1 - https://www.destructoid.com/--544456.phtml#post

My ultimate goal is to provide a finding for the majority of the songs in this game. And this starts today with the stage theme of one of the remaining robot masters, the Gutsman theme (pro tip: If you ever play the game, beat this one first. It makes Cutman a cake and allows you to obtain the magnet beam during the first run through Elecmans stage):

The first candidate who has most of the major components is the song "The Truth" by the at this point pretty known psychedelic rock band "Quicksilver Messenger Service" from their 1971 album "Quicksilver" (Note: You have to hear a little bit into the song to find something for all major components):

The main Gutsman riff might go back to the song "Coming Home Baby", originally recorded by the Dave Bailey Quintet in 1961 and recorded by numourous artists several times, most famously by Herbie Mann in 1962 ( Note: You have to hear a little bit into the song):


A honorable mention goes to the Cinderella track "Hell on Wheels" from 1986 that has several passages that remind of the beginning of the song:
