Thought that for years. Legit got them confused as a kid. My fave Sonic R song and my fave MJ song.
They're basically the same song.
I was trying my damndest to remember a song similarity that I wanted to share here and it just wasn't clicking, THEN I saw someone mention Zapp (one of my top 5 favorite bands) and Sky Chase (the song I was thinking of) a page or so back and I remembered!
While I hear a smidgen of the melody in 'Be Alright'. I think a case could also be made for this smooth cut from Troutman's 1990 solo album
The chords, the bass and to a lesser extent the melody. I was listening to 'Emotions' a few months back while at work and it hit me how much it reminded me of Sky Chase.
They are the same song and sound like crap. Dimension Heist had spoiled me.
Music on the DS in general sounds like crap, but this one kinda grew on me. A raw and energetic song. ^^ Dimension Heist is good too. Sounds like something out of a cartoon show. ^^
So I was going through the Disney catalog of games, and World of Illusion's sound design sounded very familiar. Not the melodies, just the sound design.
Then I checked the credits... and it all hit me:
(5:17, 7:58, 23:24, 42:16, 45:20)
(2:55, 14:40, 18:32, 37:59, 39:17)
Ristar and World of Illusion share a composer! I'm not sure about the sound design front of things but a lot of the FM patches sound similar.

This one's a bit over the place, but there's a bit at 20 seconds or so in Sonic Triple Trouble 16 Bit's Boss theme that I couldn't unhear as the bit at 2:00 in SIAMES' "No Lullaby" (I recommend you don't actually skip to that part though because it's a really good song + video)

Since I've heard the Game Gear games took a lot of basic samples I assumed it was there in the original, and if it is I didn't look hard enough, but then I noticed the comments reffering to Nitro Fun/Hyper Potions' Checkpoint (AKA the Sonic Mania reveal trailer music)

I still believe that it's a basic sample, but I'm not sure who all was using a sample and who took inspiration from someone else, if it wasn't all just independent happenstance.
From 0:32, At dawn from Sonic Adventure sounds like You're my heart, you're my soul by Modern Talking.
Lol. I like M.T.
This part of song also reminds me "Jump in my car" song at 0:55
It makes sense, YMO did have a huge influence on a number of future composers who happened to compose for video games, including SEGA veterans Masato Nakamura and Yuzo Koshiro. There's a number of video game OST tracks with references to other tracks from YMO as well (go to 1:07:52 in the video):
