    I'm not sure where they originally came from, we were just discussing Sonic CD's use of samples and he sent me a few randoms in a zip file. Unfortunately they're on my old mothballed PC so can't access them now, but IIRC the majority of the samples were used in Quartz Quadrant and the boss music.

    He came across them whilst looking for possible high quality samples of the SoR2-3 voice clips, since a number of them were actually sampled from other sources (SoR2 Jack's laugh is a sped-up Yosemite Sam!)

    I have no clips or musical knowledge to back this up, but there is an episode of Regular Show (in which Roger Craig Smith shows up as a character named Doug, coincidentally), and this random guy plays a harmonica with his butt (um, yeah.). It sounds really close to what's used in Rocky Ridge from Free Riders.

    Is this just a common harmonica riff, or?

    I was just listening to Speedbeats Grand Prix, and I noticed something familiar.

    I guess this means not only are the Babylon Rogues decendants of genies and aliens, but they were born in Hidden Palace as well! :specialed:

    Now if only I could slow it down to see if I could mesh them together.

    For the 808 state video, skip to 0:17

    I wonder if it's more than coincidence, seeing as though the composer for 8-bit Sonic 2 was also the composer for Sonic CD, and that in Sonic CD they lifted stuff from a lot of this kind of music.

    Here's one I found. Not exactly similar melody-wise, but the sample has to be the same:

    I'd say it's more than coincidence, definitely influence!

    I think I'm probably being a pain here. Shit reminds me of Sonic music all the time. This one in particular I think was a genuine influence; I think Sonic CD's soundtracks (both US and JP) were an inspiration to the Spyro the Dragon music composers, notably in the second and third games.

    The synth flutes, the percussion rhythms - anyone else reading this one loud and clear?

    ^ That's a good catch. I played all those Spyro games, and I never noticed, but hearing it now it really stands out (especially the first 20 seconds or so).

    I'd say it could still be coincidence, because they could have both been inspired by a third source.

    It's possible, yes -- standing on the shoulders of giants and all that.

    I do admit I'm sort of using this thread as a 'shit that reminds me of Sonic music' thread - but only with legitimate soundalikes. Although there are cases where there is a case of <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrH5jA_EiSo" target="_blank">clear and legitimate influence</a> though. ;)

    Here's one that can be chalked up to influence:

    <!--id1--><object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/DYRhHObvzNw&"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/DYRhHObvzNw&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><!--id2-->

    EWF is one of Masa's favourite groups. You can tell that song's influence on this one from DCT:

    <!--id1--><object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/OyxHHyVVEvI&"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/OyxHHyVVEvI&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><!--id2-->

    (There's no one real point where they line up, just listen to them both! =P )

    Yes, I know that's not a Sonic music... I'm getting to the point. The <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTcGIk-Pfnk" target="_blank">Sonic 2 ending theme</a> is a very similar style. One can be fairly sure what kinds of songs were running through his head when he composed it.

    Furthermore, 9 to 5 reminds me a bit more of the 2P version of Emerald Hill than Metropolis, but then again, I'm crazy.

    Re-posting one particular one here, because it's really quite remarkable.
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdeMvR—ICk&feature=related[/youtube]

    EDIT: Okay, it's not really that remarkable, but it took me by surprise cause I actually hear this song on regular basis and haven't ever made a connection between it and Silver's theme. Maybe it's just a generic beat, but still.

    WTF?! So.....they decided to saw SCREW original composition and pieced together bits of other songs? Get out of town.....seriously. I would say it's lazy, but I know at the same time, it still too SOME effort.
