Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #166 - Don't Rock the Rose


Featuring Super Mario RPG and island music.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

due to work stress, a mini update, again for Super Mario RPG (Snes, 1996). This time the theme of Rose Town, the town where everyone wears a bullseye on their head:

I think that this song is mostly rooted in island music, specifically Calypso. For the part at 0:06 I have something that is stylistically comparable:

Harry Belafonte - Jamaica Farewell (1957/traditional):

For the part starting at 0:17, I know some snippets from probably adopting artists:

Alan Jackson - Don't Rock The Jukebox (1991)

Douji - 街が海の様に (1976):

Sunday more Final Fantasy!

Phil out.
