Greetings fellow game music lovers,
the last Yoshis Island (1995) game-pop comparison entry for the year. One day late because I'm ill.
It features the music that plays before the bosses aka the Kamek theme:
Again this sounds like an island theme, maybe with boogie influences. And so it isn't a miracle that several other pop music artists use similar structures:
Akina Nakamori - MickJaguar ni hohoemiwo ミック・ジャガーに微笑みを (1986):
The Miracles - Shop Around (1960):
A silver medalist: The Blues Magoos - Georgia Breakdown (1969):
Sunday more Final Fantasy!
