Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #264 - Reefest Madness


Featuring Sonic & Knuckles and Salsa.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

yeah, another Sonic, this time Sonic & Knuckles (1994). I think we only had this once? Nevermind, still has plenty of good songs. Originally developed as Sonic 3 - Part II it includes the pic ending to the Angel Island saga. The hottest zone in the game, Lava Reef, includes a catchy dancepop song that has a very prominent sample in its second half:

I occasionally hear samples in Salsa music reminiscent of this one.

Ray Reyes - "Mi Cantar" (1979):

Orquesta Power - "Llanto Y Dolor" (1972):

Ismael Miranda - "Las Equinas Son" (1974). Listen closely to what might be a piano in the background:

And since, this is a Sonic song, we obviously need something from the funk and disco domain. For example, this one is stylistically and backing-wise similar to the beginning of the song:

Fatback Band - "All-Nite Party" (1988):

And this one only for the bass:

Max Coveri - "Bye Bye Baby" (1988):

Phil out.
