Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #194 - Fly High


Featuring Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (MD) and Funk.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

I still have some Sonic samples left. Now that summer is nearing it's end it has become much more bearable, temperature and humidity wise, so maybe we can finally get around for chilling out a little bit. And there are few songs that make for a good chill-out than the somewhat misleading named song "Sky Chase" from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992):

I probably don't have to tell that the song is as funky as it gets so it is not difficult to tell where to look at for samples.

For the first part after the intro at 0:04 I can offer a sample by Zapp from their 1980 self-titled album:

Zapp - "Be Alright" (1980):

And for a curvature based similarity:

Psy S - Down the Slope (1987):

And for the part starting at 0:22:

I can offer the following samples:

Sly and the family stone - "Somebody's Watching You" (1969):

Urszula Dudziak - "Papaya" (1975):

Emptying the Sonic barrel for august so stay tuned!

Phil out.
