Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #234 - Lex Lufia


Featuring Lufia 2 - Rise of the Sinistrals ans several genres. 

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

as promised, another track for Lufia 2 - Rise of the Sinistrals for SNES from 1995. This little mischievous tune plays in the Lexis Shaia lab, the mad scientist family whose members support the heroes throughout the ages:

It's hard to pinpoint this one as comparable stuff has appeared in different genres through the ages. Some examples:

Quarteto em Cy - "Sapato Mole" (1972) (listen closely to the drum(?) in the background:

Phew - H-Stag (1987):

Of course, in theory these low-high-high-high low-high-high-high patterns already existed in 19th century romantic music. Aim for the piano in the background:

Camille Saint-Saëns - "Élégie for Violin, Op. 160 in F Major"

Structures with a similar tone can sometimes be found in waltz music:

Emile Waldteufel - "Tendresse, Waltz, Op. 217"

And an oddball, something of an inbetween of the two eras:

Richard Himber - "Day After Day" (1938):

More Lufia next week? Maybe. Otherwise there is plenty of other stuff to do.

Phil out.
