Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #175 - Hit-Blurred Vision


Featuring Super Punch Out and dancepop.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

due to easter, I decided to make an extra comparison because I don't have much time in the following days from one of Nintendos oldest franchises: Punch Out, more specifically it's Super Nintendo incarnation from 1994, Super Punch Out. The game has a catchy ending song that reminds me a lot of the celebratory tone of the Street Fighter 2 ending theme:

I recently found a song form the dancepop genre with a remarkably similar structure to this portion of the ending theme: TM Network - "Fantastic Vision" (1985):

They have other songs with similar albeit less complete structures (Quatro ~ Panoramagic, 1985):

Btw Mega Man 9 (2008) also uses a comparable progression in its credits theme:

I wonder if they will dare to make another Punch Out with Mike Tyson sometime in the future?

Phil out.
