Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #281 - Be A Promoted Swordsman, Read A Book


Featuring Shining Force and classical music.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

one more Shining Force, shall we? Again for the first in the Force series from 1992. One of the songs you cannot play the game without hearing it: The one from the girl with the file saving book:

For the melodic sequence itself, there is a reminiscent sequence in the minuet in Mozarts quintet for clarinet KV 581 which also could explain the 3/4 time:

Maybe another one as an oddball:

Jimmy McHugh - "Say A Prayer For The Boys Over There" (1943)

Phil out.
