another Saturday, another Mega Man day. Again from Mega Man 2 from 1987. This time it is about Mega Man 2 Wily ... 2! (sorry to get your hopes up!). Nevertheless, you hear this tune still often enough to get it stuck in your head for a looong time:

Kikorikko - "Kami no Mama ni" (1985):
Eloy - "Poseidon's Creation" (1977) :
Next week more Megaman!
