Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities Classics #25


Featuring Metal Gear 2 - Solid Snake and movie/traditional music.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

again due to health issues I have to use a classics entry again. Since we had Metal Gear related entries in the last weeks, it will be one from this direction again.

This time it is about Metal Gear 2 - Solid Snake (1990) for the MSX, Kojimas official sequel to the original Metal Gear which he started working on after talking to one of the developers of Snake's Revenge.


First we have the song "Advance Immediately" (Note: other songs like "The Front Line" have it too):

As some people recognized, this is pretty reminiscent of one of the leitmotifs from the Rambo 2 (1985) movie:

Someone at Konami really has to like Rambo.

Then we have the Zanzibar Land national antheme

that many feel has an uncanny resemblance to the traditional christmas song "We Wish you a Merry Christmas":

Next week we'll probably move on from Metal Gear. I think I promised some Sega stuff some time, right?

Phil out.
