Featuring Mega Man 3 and several prog rock bands.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
as continuation of the Mega Man month we return to Mega Man 3. And today's topic is a song that might be one of those people have heard most often while playing the game: The password / game over screen music:
I have found a solid number of prog rock songs that have a remarkable similar vibe to this song. The first one comes from the british prog rock band "Cressida" from 1970 and is called "Lights in My Mind":
The Raincoats - Life On The Line (1979):
Jun Togawa / Yapoos, ベビーラヴ (1984) (yeah, there just had to be a japanese on this list):
The Undertones - Jimmy Jimmy (1979):
Elvis Costello - God's Comic (1989):
Squeeze - His House Her Home (1982):
Demon - Blackheath (1983):
For some reason there seems to be an accumulation inside 70s, 80s britrock. I wonder if it is based on a standard from that time?
On wednesday we have something that is not Mario!
