Featuring Mega Man 2/3 and several.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
as already announced, I still need some more time to prepare the next month, thus I fill the time by providing yet another Megaman entry.
First I want to revisit the music of Wily stage 5-6 from Mega Man 3 (1990). As noted in the previous entry the first part of the tune is a remix of the Wily stage boss theme / Gamma theme. Today I want to have a look at the second part of the song that starts comparatively late (~30 seconds mark) and is not heard by many people because the stage this song plays in is pretty short:
There is a song by japanese folk duo "Kaze" (風) called "22才の別れ" ( 22 year old parting ) that features a comparable sample in a prominent position repeatedly:
For those who have difficulty hearing it:
It's the DUMDUMDUMDUMDUM pattern that is featured in both samples.
Then we have the Heat Man stage from Mega Man 2 (1988). It has a section
that has a vague similarity to the refrain to the Yes song "City Of Love" (1983):
This may or may not be the last Megaman entry, depending on what I find next week but it doesn't matter as I have plenty of other stuff.
