Featuring Mega Man 3 and Haruomi Hosono.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
another sunday, another Mega Man entry and we are still with Mega Man 3 (1990). This time our focus lies on a snippet from the Spark Man stage:
Introducing Haruomi Hosono, an experimental pop artists form Japan who is known to be a precursor to City Pop, a genre that has inspired many game music composers of the 80s and early 90s. His exotica album "The Aegean Sea" includes a song called "レゲ・エーゲ・ウーマン" (Reggae Aegean Woman) which has a sample that reminds me a lot of the sequence from Spark Man:
Note: He also uses something similar at the beginning of his song "Pacific". I wonder if there a more songs out there that have something like this?
Wednesday for something completely different.
