Featuring Dr. Mario and mostly caribbean music.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
for the end of summer I chose a snippet from a game that puts a heavy emphasis on chilling: Dr. Mario, our favourite Mario based puzzle game from 1990. Despite being composed by Hirokazu Tanaka it seems to keep up the general principle of caribbean based Mario music just like Super Mario Land. The followin snippet is our todays focus of interest:
We start out with a song by japanese Jazz flutist Tamami Yokake and her song ポカポカ which already has a pretty reminiscent snippet:
Now to the caribbean for real. Here we go:
Lord Kitchener - "Bring The Scotch" (1979):
Black Stalin - "Sundar Popo" (1980):
And so summer ends. So let's prepare for the fall program! And how do we start? With the long awaited second Mega Man series! Several weeks of Mega Man findings, mostly from classic and X series!
See you then!
Update: Small update that predates the Karn Evil Sample (1973) floating around. Thanks VGML user Zeek!
Sonny Rollins - "St. Thomas" (1957):
