Holy mother fucking shit. I know a lot of people who were trying to decipher what the lyrics to the song were. Guess we know now. :thumbsup:
After listening to a lot of the euro songs with this in mind, there are a lot more songs that use samples from other disco/early pop songs.

Oh yeah, and uhh...guys:
Sonic 3 Mini Boss meets It Takes 2
Listen to 0:33-0:39 for "It Takes 2" and then listen to 0:41-0:47 for Sonic 3's Mini Boss theme and tell me that isn't similar.

I can't believe I didn't see this before. And I'm kinda stuned no one said this before. Guess I'm the only one who listens to good music. :P

Another thing which falls in the same catagory such as this is Carnival Night Zone's music. No, this isn't another MJ connection. A significant part of the song uses a stereotypical carnival/circus stock theme (Barnum and Baily maybe?).

Take a listen if you want. Used same methods for the CNZ's music but since I didn't find anything that sounds like what I'm talking about, it's the only thing you'll hear.

It might not sound exactly like the music it's based on, but it's very loose. I wish I could find an example of this carnival theme being used as I've heard it 10010-83029474028947 times before. Not only that, but since it sounds very "stock" if anyone knows the name of the theme I'm trying to connect it with, it might be on apmmusic.com.


It's actually Entrance of the Gladiators.

This is poor quality sound but you can hear the melody that you're thinking of.

Thank you! That's exactly what I had in mind. Now that you mention that melody, you can hear the same exact thing in Circus Park in Shadow the Hedgehog ( ~ 0:16).

Going back to the Sonic 3's miniboss theme, I hope I'm not the only one who can hear the connection to "It Takes Two" in there. I mean, it even has the "Woo/Hoo" and the "Hey" that you normally hear in both songs as well. The "Come on" part, I haven't got a clue. But I think I'm getting offtopic by mentioning it though, so. But it's nice to make a connection that isn't LOL MICHAEL JACKSON once in while. When I find a lossless version of "It Takes Two", I'll have at attempting to prove what I stated. I think I'm right though. :P

Check out this compilation. A huge list of all the sonic music that's been reused/revamped.

Edit: Maybe one of you should contact EspioKAOS to see if we can absorb this into the wiki. Tell him his article is being assimilated. Resistance is futile.


He's really active at pso-world, so that might be your best bet. Anyways I never was able to hear half of the connections on that site.

Anyways, during the Jacques SAGE Interview we had it confirmed that Sonic 3D Blast's Rusty Ruin Zone was indeed based conceptually on the Enigma song Sadeness Part 1.

I think this song sounds EXACTLY like a Sonic CD Good Future zone...

Pacific StatePacific State

It's pretty uncanny, every time I hear it I just wanna get out the ol' Sega CD and fire that fucker up!

Really reminds me of the Little Planet/D.A Gardens track.

Interesting—this song has the same chord progression as Hi-Tech Jazz, and it's similar to the Japanese Special Stage music as well. Ripoff, or popular style at the time?

The early 90s had the best music.

The Jap version of Sonic CD's special zone always reminds me of 'Pacific State' by 808 State. Certain sounds in it remind me of that song.

I heard these two tracks a few years ago when I uncovered a copy of 'Dance Now 91'. It instantly reminded of Sonic CD. So many elements can be attributed to different tracks.
Quadrophonia
T99
It's probably just a general style from the early nineties, called hardcore or acid house, I do believe.

EDIT:Links fixed.

Megaman Zero 2 - Awakening Will
Sonic the Movie - South Island Theme
The first part of Awakening Will sounds just like that song, without the lead. On a sidenote, the second part sounds a bit like His World.

EDIT: Cinossu's version of it goes with it a bit better, in case you can't hear the similarity...
