Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #295 - Tumbling Teddybirds


Featuring Banjo-Kazooie and more country music.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

as promised, some more musical tidbits from Banjo-Kazzoie (1998).

First we have the invincibility theme (the first second is another instance of the Charge!! jingle, so we'll skip that):

This could be about any fast banjo plucking solo. Here is one by Frank Wakefield:

Frank Wakefield - "Bluegrass Banjo #1" (before 1978):

Then another one from the pause screen which uses the same principal progression:

And of course there are country songs that have such slow plucking as backing:

Roy Clark - "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" (1982):

I think I'll put Banjo on pause for a while because it needs some more research. But there is lots of other stuff to do fortunately!

Phil out.
