    Came across it randomly, reminded me of this:

    The intros sound quite similar.

    These two songs by English (Leeds) gothic rock band "The Systers of Mercy" (one of my brothers is a huge fan) ...





    have lots of similarities with Road Rash II Main Theme :

    I see some relatively recent replies on here, so I'll bite:

    I'm getting some major S&K Mini Boss vibes from this song by the S.O.S Band (one of favorite bands) starting at about 0:51:



    And while this next song (from Rob & Fab of the Milli Vanilli scandal of all people) doesn't necessarily SOUND like anything, the selected part (0:24) sounds very Gen/MD-like and those snares at the same part, specifically sound very Sonic 1 & 2'ish:

    In the Sonic 3 prototype thread, @SEGACast said that the unused music from S3&K Collection and the prototype...



    ...sounds like "Something About You" by Level 42:




    To me, the melody in the Sonic track's first ten seconds sounds like the chorus melody of the Manic Street Preachers' "Australia" (instrumental version at 0:07; repeated in the vocals at 1:07).



    That had its album release in May 1996. Of course, Sonic and the Manics already had a connection before that...:eng101:

    About six seconds in, does that bit from Queen's "Invisible Man" sound remarkably similar to the Special Stage warp SFX to anyone else?

    edit: the bit fifty seconds in is perhaps even closer.

    I found a near identical version of the 'Go' sound effect from Sonic & Knuckles at 4:30



    Actually no, it's not the same 'Go' effect since the source is a higher-pitch and has a Michael Jackson voice.

    I think it’s been confirmed that the “go” sample came from a sample pack and wasn’t recorded by MJ.

    Trying to get outta Dr. Dre mode, and actually release an album.
    It's from Run-DMC's "Peter Piper." Nothing to do with MJ.

    Some time ago, I read somewhere that Spring Yard was inspired by Toshiki Kadomatsu's "Lovin' You (Sawako)". Most everyone else I've mentioned it to say it's hard to hear, but speeding it up might make it a little more clear.

    Gonna need some help with this one. Was listening to Hybrid Front's OST and this track caught my attention. I saw that it was also used in Sonic Megamix.



    So, first off, at 0:04-0:08 you can listen to a small loop that I can't quite place. The entire track reminds me of Sonic Game Gear soundtracks and this loop in specific something with Knuckles. Any help?

    Now, if you slow down the track to 0.5x, the main song loop that plays on the right channel (0:01-0:08) also reminds me of something else that I really am struggling to place. Again Sonic related.

    One of the composers is Naofumi Hatayama, so I suppose I may be getting Sonic CD vibes or perhaps he used the same loop on one of the tracks there?

    This has bothered me for quite some time, but I've always felt that these songs sounded similar, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it:





    EDIT: Then there's this remix:

    SA1's Speed Up jingle seems to take a bit from "Active Heart" the opening theme from "Aim for the Top! Gunbuster" (1:00 in).

    First of all: The following song doesn't sound like Sonic at the slightest. It's just whenever I listen to it, I can't help but feel like I've heard it somewhere before. Check out minute 5:04...



    That's right, it's the same melody as the bridge at 1:46 of Super Sonic Racing! Isn't that great?



    In my headcanon, some fan of Sonic Rs soundtrack went to Koji Kondo or whoever wrote that piece of music and couldn't stop gushing about how awesome Super Sonic Racing is until he or she eventually included this section of the song.

    I just had to share that. Because I think it's cool.
     
  18. Hey guys.. I don’t know if this was brought up but do you think Rihanna played some Sonic CD back in the day?? Lol this beat sure sounds familiar:

    Rihanna- We Found Love


    Sonic CD Collision Chaos Good Future (first 8 seconds)

    That shit is a dead ringer. The heavy reverb on the drums and the guitar part being identical really sell it. LOL

    Johnny Sundae was really watching Gunbuster out here. Good for him.

    The bit at 0:04 sounds rhythmically similar to Turquoise Hill with an Underground Zone-ish bassline and very Game-Gear-sounding synths, plus a descending melody vaguely reminiscent of Metallic Madness. It's like SEGA's own uncanny valley
