"Songs that "inspired" videogame soundtracks" , posted Sat 10 Mar 23:15post reply

I thought it would be nice to gather all the songs from videogame soundtracks that were stolen/taken/etc from somewhere else under one thread.

I'll start off with a new find that had been bothering me for YEARS.

"Loose!" by Prince from the album Come VS "Chicago" by Yoshie Arakawa from Tekken





Waw!? And now what's going on!? Toh Shin Den is about to present to you a super hot virtual battle like one that you've never seen before at a rate of 90000 polygons per second!

I always thought that the chords in this part of this Castlevania song sounded like the notes Michael Jackson sings at the start of the chorus of Thriller.

Even though I thought Wild Arms was lame and derivative of FF VI, Estpolis/Lufia, and Lunar 2, I always loved the "Wayfarer of the Wilderness" map theme. But then, I realized that composer Naruke Michiko's love for American Wild West music was a little too obvious a tribute: Ennio Morricone's stirring "Ecstasy of Gold" from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (further clue: the Japanese title of another Sergio Leone movie, A Fistful of Dollars, is "Yojimbo of the Wilderness").

I have never seen The Rock (sad, I know), but apparently the MGS2 Theme even uses the same instruments!

Oh and this is an awesome orchestral version of the MGS2 theme, I just discovered it and had to share!

The aria of Children by Robert Smiles was actually used by SNK in the Rock Howard theme from MOTW.

Oh yeah! I realized that only a few months ago when someone else pointed it out... I was pretty impressed at how almost all of it was note for note :)

Now whenever I see Elton John, I think of Mega Man, and vice-versa.

When I made that realization myself, I stopped listening to the Wild Arms soundtrack and started listening to more Morricone. She has a few songs that are like that on the soundtrack, but I'm not complaining. It's a little "dirty" and I'd rather listen to the real thing, but when I'm playing the game a good soundtrack is a good soundtrack.

It's funny you should mention this, since they're both by the same composer. This interview may shed some light on that.

Oddly enough, IMDB only credits Hans Zimmer as The Rock's composer, but the soundtrack itself states otherwise.

If you think that's a comparison, you should check this out

Everyone should know Blue Water Blue Sky (Guilty Gear X May's theme) was based on this

I forgot to mention that you should first listen to this
Then this

I will always love the '94 Ikari theme, no matter how obviously it bites this.

I remember pre-MGS2 hype touting the fact that they acquired the composer of The Rock.
