Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #90 - Deathshot


Featuring Quackshot and Sindelfingen.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

it wednesday, so back to something other than Megaman. More Sega, for a change.

In the early 90s, Sega produced several Disney licensed games like Lucky Dime Caper for the Master System, World of Illusion for the Mega Drive or the game Quackshot (1991), which featured Donald Duck as main character assuming a more adventuring role in contrast to his usual slacker self (funny, in the comics Scrooge would be the adventurous one while Donald was his suffering and usually unwilling travel companion).

A song that many people tend to remember from the more harder parts of the game is the one that plays in the levels (pyramids, temples, etc.) which were spiced with the genre-common death traps. This song has a section that features a folksy, mysterious clarinet sequence (along with a sample of several ethnic music styles):

A stylistically similar setup can be found in the song "Death, Part 1" on the album Odgipig by the folk prog band "Sindelfingen" from 1974:

Sunday back to Mega Man.

Phil out.
