Featuring Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Lita Ford and more.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
with one day late I decided to bring a Sega entry today: The ending theme from the second entry of the classic Sonic series form 1992, more specifically a certain sequence from it:
Yes, I know about the connection to Dreams Come True's "Sweet Dream" from 1992/94. Nevertheless, since I felt I had heard similar stuff before I wondered if I could do better.
I think that this original may have originated from the 70s/80s post-punk scene. Some examples:
Heavy Metal artist Lita Ford's "Kiss Me Deadly" from 1988:
Or the song "Oliver's Army" by Elvis Costello from 1979:
Morrissey - The National Front disco (1992):
Nena - Nur geträumt (1983):
I need some vacation soon...
Update 20/11/2020: A challenger has appeared: "This Can't be Love" from Rodgers "The boys from Syracuse" musical (1938):
Pretty Little Pettycoat by Raymond Scott from 1940:
