Some people say that Sonic 06's Town Mission 4 music sounds like Flash Man's music. I kind of hear it, but the massive difference in fidelity doesn't make it easy.

Town Mission 4 0:30 ~ Flash Man 0:38. Otherwise, not a lot in common in my opinion.

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but:

Sonic 1 - Green Hill <-> Sonic 360 - Dream of an Absolution

I can't play Megamix without singing "but you still control the past" >_<

Yeah, people keep saying that... it's a very faint similarity, and I had to think about it before I even made the connection.

I think it goes without saying that the similarity was unintentional, though; that's why it annoys me when people go around asking LB if it was. Damn you, Sonic fanbase! :)

A coupla things I've been aware of for a while... this is a good time and place for sharing:

Sonic Adventure 2 - Fly in the Freedom [Theme of Rouge]
3:32 to END - Dig the horn arrangement.

Brand New Heavies - Dream on Dreamer
[it's really only on this particular version, available on their Trunk Funk compilation]
2:00 to END - virtually the same horn arrangement.

Also, this suspected source of inspiration:

Sonic Adventure - Limestone Cave [Icecap]
Released 1999.

Swing Out Sister - Icy Cold as Winter
Emphasis on "Icy Cold"; released 1997.

Sound quality is kinda ehh but here's another one to consider. SBZ from Sonic 1 GG. I'm actually working on a VGM that's a combo between those two songs.

Wicked Child from the original Castlevania.

I mean, they're in the same key and have the same chord progression.

WoW! Those are really creepy. I just heard Dreams of an Absolution for the first time on Monday in my car (I DLed it awhile ago and it was ramdomly added to my iPod) and I didn't notice that!

I recently learned to play Cyanide, by Metallica. As soon as I got to what I think is about 20 seconds in, there is a part that reminds me of the Egg Albatross theme from Sonic Heroes. After listening to them again, I can understand why other people might disagree, and it is only a small part of the song. It is probably just part of the style.

Links: Cyanide - http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=0T_U9-_Mgp0&...feature=related - go 24 seconds in.
Egg Albatross - http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=p8YDaZiHMYw

Oh yeah. I'd say that's almost certainly an influence on Scrap Brain Zone =P

I can see what you're getting at with this one too, actually...

I don't know what it was, but this was playing in my list, and I thought I was listening to an OCR of Lava Reef Act 2. There might be a remix that's in this style or whatnot. It's pretty cool, you keep expecting the Lava Reef run to come in.

Edit: Alright, I found the OC remix that made this song remind me of Lava Reef to begin with.

Oh well, it's good to have a music comparison thread handy instead of creating a new one.

So the other day I was going through the channels on the Italian TV and I noticed this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-iiDHTJa3c. That song has close resemblance with Tidal Tempest Good Future and another level from Sonic CD (though I don't remember which one because I suck at Sonic CD). Or is it just me?

if you slow down "Ristar - Ice scream" a little bit, it sounds like this but without the lead:

(Ignore the bleepy bits near the beggining)
