Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #178 - Paper Samba


Featuring Paper Mario 64 and latin music.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

I recently bought a used Paper Mario 64 (2000) for too much money and after binging it for a week I think it is a good opportunity to make some additional notes to my previous entry.

First of all we have the battle theme:

When I heard this, I first thought of the Season 3+ theme of the Garfields and friends show from the 1980s:

Nevertheless, it's a popular jingle form latin music, I shall add some more samples once I find good ones.

Then we have the song "Nice to meet You":

Which of course many people found to have an uncanny resemblance with West Side Story's (1957) "America":

The beginning of the "Koopa Bros Keep Cool" theme

has another instance ofthe Donkey Kong / Dragnet jingle (1951):

There are many puns to earlier Mario games. I might have a look at them at a later time.

Phil out.
