Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #216 - Street Rock Canon


Featuring Street Fighter 2 and Baroque / Rock.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

as promised, here is another entry from Street Fighter 2 (1992). Another theme that so far has received relatively little attention: The ending theme. It features a cheerful sequence where you have the feeling that comparable things have been used in multiple contextes and multiple genres over a very long time:

I think that the song sounds like a rockified version of Pachebels Canon. In order to make my point, I present you rockified versions of Pachebels Canon:

Pop Tops - "Oh Lord, why Lord" (1968) (Listen to the backing):

Bob James - "In The Garden" (1974):

And that's all I have for Street Fighter 2 at the moment. But there is still plenty of other stuff...

Phil out.
