Phils Game/Pop Music Similarities #306 - Run Kids Run


Featuring Final Fantasy VI and country/gospel.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

another week, another Final Fantasy song. And another Final Fantasy VI (1994) song. This time it is the theme that plays in the small towns in the World of Balance, aka "Kids Run Through the City" :

My hypthesis is that the song is supposed to be an homage to a certain type of melodic progressions often found in the country/gospel domain. Some examples:

George Beverly Shea with The Anita Kerr Singers - "Peace in the Valley" (1981, original by Thomas A. Dorsey 1939 ):

John Valentine Eppel - "Missouri Waltz" (1914):

Egbert Van Alstyne - "Won't You Come Over To My House" (1906):

Hank Williams - "Pictures from Life's Other Side" (1955):

Oak Ridge Boys - "Since Jesus Came In" (1971) :

Only three weeks till christmas! Still stuff to do!

Phil out.
