Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #108 - The Promised Dragonland


Featuring Double Dragon, Miho Nakayama and Toru Watanabe.


Greetings fellow game music lovers,

Then we have the song "Be-Bop Highschool" by Miho Nakayama, the title theme to the 1985 action movie of the same name:

The protagonists have an awful stylistic similarity to Technos mascot character "Kunio-Kun" known from River City Ransom. Coincidence?

Sunday more Chrono.

Phil out.
