Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #195 - The One That Wasn't Replaced


Featuring Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Funk/Disco.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

yes, the Sonic bag is still not empty as isn't the Funk bag. So, what do we have today? How about the boss theme of Sonic 3 (1994)? The one that wasn't replaced unlike the miniboss theme when the Sonic & Knuckles addon was released:

From the style & tone it is likely that it follows the dystopian feeling disco took on in the early 80s. Consequently it isn't very hard to find some songs with similar structures from well known artist of that era:

War - "Bad Mutha Trucka" (1985):

Angie Gold - "Timebomb" (1985):

Ami Ozaki - "Who?" (1982):

More Sonic next week? We'll see.

Phil out.
