    I listened to all of the Kingdom Valley songs I could find on YouTube, and none of them sound remotely similar.

    EDIT: But if what Mykonos says is true, then it's more likely that both just used a stock vocal effect.

    I guess it's just a (loose) coincidence. I've heard many songs using these vocal samples before, even before Sonic '06 was even released. Heck, even I have these samples, amd a soundfont that have the voices in lots of different pitches. Nothing surprising in there.

    2005 game Shadow Heart II: Covennant featured these samples in the Asmodeus boss battle music if I'm not mistaken. Too busy to be bothered to check right now.

    Here are some classic ones that are pretty famously overused.

    "Jump" (Which in turn is a sample of House of Pain's <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwQbPgouUYo" target="_blank">"Jump Around"</a>):

    As it was established, sampling melodies and lyrics is very common in VG music. It's far less expensive (if at all priced) than getting the rights to the original songs.

    The chord progression is damn near identical in the verse.

    Edit: Soda: That Einhader track sounds like it was ripped right out of Sonic CD.

    Definitely similar to Splash Hill Zone in here. So much so, that I don't even need to point it out. Just have a listen.

    At the 1:47 mark, this song sounds just like the special stages in S2, albeit only for about 8 seconds. But still, that similarity is so obvious during the brief time it's there.

    edit: fixed

    I think you meant to say Sonic 2's special stage.

    Emphasis on the chord progression and on the bassline. When I told this to Puto, he even made a mockup. The two songs overlay almost perfectly (once LZ is slowed down like hell).

    I can't believe I found a good Sonic music comparison in a Ridge Racer soundtrack of all places.

    This is what I'm talking about. Ready your ears for 0:28-0:55.

    Unleashed players should recognize this right away, but here's that track in question for comparison.

    Oh wow, I didn't even have to listen to the original track, I recognized it instantly.

    Probably just a coincidence though. :>

    You know SRA's Haunted Ship and Frogger 2's gold mines had the same sample? I think I found the source.</a>

    Spread it around.
