Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #246 - Metal Dance Funk


Featuring Mega Man 2, dance pop and funk.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

and we continue with out Mega Man music comparison series. Unfortunately, I don't feel that well this week so I'll close off the Mega Man 2 (1987) section with two minor but often heard music samples.

First, we have the jingle that plays at the end of a level:

A comparable jingle repeatedly appears in the song 1978 song "Holy Ghost" by the Funk group The Bar-Kays:

Then we have a jingle that appears several times in the Metal Man stage theme:

A comparable jingle appears very often in 80s synth and dance pop. Some examples:

Toshiki Kadomatsu - "Space Scraper" (1982):

Yuko Imai - "Silhouette Dancer" (1987):

Anri - "Red Moon Calling" (1986) (in Background):

Risa Tachibana - "Koiyori Chikakuni" (1987):

Next week we proceed with Mega Man 3.

Phil out.
