Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #128 - Red Flying Alice


Featuring Balloon Kid, Cinderella etc.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

the heat is melting my brain and so I can only offer a mini update today. It is for Nintendos charming balloon flying game for the Nintendo Gameboy from 1990, "Balloon Kid". Is it too late to hope for a remake/sequel for the switch? The song is the one played during the battle against the Wolf boss which is the last boss many people see as the game gets increasingly difficult after this point:


The first sample I can offer for this is from the american rock band "Cinderella", the song Nothin' for Nothin' from 1986 which starts with this charming sample:

As alternative I can offer the song "Lucky Ones" from the canadian rockband "Loverboy" from 1982. Listen closely for the backing:

What does the wolf have against you anyways? Or the shrimp. Or the robot.

Phil out.
