    I noticed this the other day. These two songs are remarkably similar, especially the second half:

    Just worked a second ago. That's really too uncanny to be less than at least a homage or inspiration.

    Oh wow. There's a music similarity thread somewhere but this is just too close. also that whistle sound in the super fantasy zone one is horrible.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    I'm sure somebody's posted this before.

    This really didn't warrant its own thread, you could've just posted it in the "Other Knowledge" topic.

    Reminds me more of a mix of Sonic and OutRun music.
     
  8. This definitely has been posted before. I vividly remember reading about it in one of the other threads, most likely the music comparison topic.

    Ah. Well, I am disappoint. No point in not discarding the thread.

    I like this whistle. But yeah. Close. Who did the music?

    -The music theme that plays in the Special Stages in the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version of Sonic 3D Blast is none other than Level One's (Picknica) theme. Given Sonic 3D Blast was released later than Super Fantasy Zone, it's plausible that this was thrown in as an easter egg reference.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    That's all the research I feel like doing.

    Jun Senoue did the arrangement on Sonic 3D Blast, either Naoki Kodaka, Shinichi Seya, or Nobuyuki Hara did the one on Super Fantasy Zone (there was a big album with all the Fantasy Zone music on it, and for some reason this was the only game that didn't list who did what on each track). I remember someone bringing it up with Jun during the IRC interview that SAGE had unofficially with him a few years back and I remember him saying that it was a homage to it. I don't remember the specific reason, but I do remember it being brought up.
