Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #154 - Bayou Yoshi


Featuring Yoshis Island and some more country music.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

since I have heavy headaches today I have decided to make it short and bring some more Super Mario World 2 - Yoshis Island (1995) outtakes.

First we have a section from the so-called Overworld theme:

I have several songs so far with somewhat similar structures, again mostly from the country domain. The first one is called "Billy Bayou" and was a #1 Country & Western hit in 1958:

Dolly Parton - If You Need Me (1991):

Linda Ronstadt - Love is a Rose (1975):

Marshall Tucker Band - Hillybilly Band (1976):

John Mellencamp - Cheap Shot (1980):

Some oddballs. First is something that sounds like an evil version of the jingle: J. Geils Band - No Doubt About it (1973):

The other one is from the song "Promises" by punk rock band Buzzcocks first released as single in 1978:


If I had to make a final verdict subjectively the song feels like a carribean-style remix of a bluegrass standard.


I will now fall ded in bed.

Phil out of order.
