Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #266 - Caves and Raves


Featuring Goonies 2 (NES) and Ragtime.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

due to me being rather busy with life this week, another entry of brevity. For Goonies 2 (1987), the Metroidvania sequel of the Goonies game (and in a way, the movie) released the year before. The stage theme, that plays after you leave the house and enter the cave areas:

The song really sounds like something played in a shady blues bar from the early 20th century. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the melody which sounds like it was taken from somewhere else. However, I can offer a song that has a similar ascending scale followed by jiggling from the not too far away located ragtime era:

Luckey Roberts - "Sly and Shy" ( 1946 ):

I think I will do some more hidden gems before returning to the mainstream franchises.

Phil out.
