Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #167 - Roaming Ghosts


Greetings fellow game music lovers,

I admit, I always fall back to Final Fantasy VI (1994) in the end. This is not for dislike of the others, but FFVI was one of the first Final Fantasies I played and the one whos soundtrack I memorized best. With virus-induced lockdowns everywhere one might be tempted to take a walk in the nature. Like the woods. Which is all good and well, as long as you restrain yourself from boarding any randomly appearing trains that, according to the state railway program, should not be there or might might land right inside


When I got my Final Fantasy 1987 - 1994 CD back in the day, I was surprised to hear a song on it that has a surprisingly similar structure: "Roaming Sheep", which did not appear on the OSV but the Eternal Legend of the Wind CD:

I think that both songs are rooted in standards from waltz music where several songs with similar curvature can be found. And I don't only mean the 3/4 time:

The Waltz You Saved For Me - Wayne King (1940):

Èmile Waldteufel - Gaite, Op. 164 (1878):

Emile Waldteufel - Acclamations,Valse Op.223 (1888):

For closure, I choose japanese ecclectic artist Magical Power Mako and his song 12 Sweet Strings from 1982:

Wednesday more Mario!

Phil out.
