Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #237 - Ginger Headbang


Featuring Kabuki Quantum Fighter, Funk and Calypso.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

in the heat of the summer, another sample from an NES classic: Kabuki Quantum Fighter from 1990. A platformer where your player character is transferred into a computer in order to defeat a virus on a killer Satellite or so. Your avatar inside the platform is a Kabuki character with long red hair that you can use to headbang enemies for great justice.

Our focus today lies on the boss theme which sounds like this:

The sequence is fairly simple, so it isn't surprising that I have multiple leads. The first is a popular standard in the Funk genre:

Weldon Irvine - "The Power and the Glory" (1975):

It might also be derived from a popular backing in Calypso genre. Listen closely to the piano in the background:

Mighty Sparrow - "Memories" (1974):

And Summer moves on...

Phil out.
