Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #263 - Piano Selection


Featuring Zelda 3 - A Link To The Past and Ragtime.

Greetings game music lovers,

we can't make a Nintendo run without a Zelda entry, can we? So here we are again with Zelda 3 - A Link To The Past (1991), the other franchise defining game besides the first and Zelda 64. Also one of the first games to be released for the Snes.

Among the songs that you may hear most often song is the one that plays in the menu screen for the save select screen. Unless you want to make a no-death run that is:

The descending piano line sounds like a note sequence that you can occasionally hear in old ragtime songs from the beginning of the 20th century. Examples:

Richard Liebert - "Maryette" (1934):

Zez Confrey - "That Old Piano Roll Band" (1943):

So what might be next? Find out next week!

Phil out.
