this one might be a little obscure, considering that i had to upload it to Youtube in order to demonstrate. first bit of the song only, as should be kinda obvious.

Flash Man vs Price Man

Link to 33s in, closer to relevant bit.


i'm sure i don't really need to link this for comparison purposes, but


could the Seek and Destroy thing just be a red herring? was Flash Man's stage an elaborate Price is Right set, not an ice level? does Flash Man have beauties?

I can't find a link to it, but the "Enter Initials" music from RC Pro AM sounds like "Jitterbug" by WHAM!

This isn't one of those "straight up ripped" kind of things, but Hilltop Zone from Sonic 2 always reminds me of Joe Walsh.  Especially the chorus.

I doubt this was posted before. Definitely not exactly the same, but structurally similar and with similar moods.

Just the first part of the Winterhawk song. That song's pretty unusual, combining NES guitars with a Van Morrison-style song. I thought it was weird at first but now I like it.

That main riff sounds like the melody to Frog's Theme from Chrono Trigger.

 

It's also a very neat little folk metal song.

The cadence/turn around during this Actraiser 2 song sounds remarkably similar to this cadence in this act from Wagner's Tristan ans Isolde.

Can anyone else hear similarities to NES Ducktales' Moon Theme or is it just me?
