Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #287 - Blueshells


Featuring Turtles NES and Blues, Jazz etc.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

another Turtles NES entry, this time the second stage theme:

The song has strong Blues characteristics although the rhythm rather suggests a derivative like Boogie or Rock N'Roll. Some Blues songs with similar note sequences:

Cab Calloway - Minnie the Moocher (1931):

Van McCoy - Spanish Boogie (1975):

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto _ "I Didn't Know What Time It Was (Rodgers)" (1974):

An oddball:

Family - "Hey Mr. Policeman" (1968):

Some more Turtles next Week? We'll see!

Phil out.
