Around 15:09 Castlevania death sound


I think it's easier to hear at 15:00.

Actually, the initial drumming on Daydreamin made me think of the Mario 3 underground theme.

 

 

 

 

Now that I listed to it side by side, I guess they're not entirely similar, but it's still what I thought of immediately.

you will die of sodium poisoning before you ever take me with enough grains of salt.


Perhaps the same can be said of all birth control. But enough posting- have at you!

It hit me playing Smash Bros. last night, Route 209 from Pokémon Diamond/Pearl...




...reminds me of the chorus of All The Young Dudes (see 0:54)

Just realized the one little melody in this sounds like a spookier version of the chorus of this

Aqua Star is a beach themed world so I can't help but think this might be intentional

These two don't sound like specific VG songs, but they remind me of some different eras of video game music...

 

Rippingtons are a popular band on the contemporary jazz station I listen to, and this track in particular gives me a 90's redbook audio vibe:

 

 

The main lick in this one reminds me of NES melodies:

i cross'd a barrier into SCOOPvilLe yesterday and dunked with the best jammers and fresh dip ballers roundabout through an awesome bomb dunk party.

Typhoon Turnpike by TWRP sounds like half the Super Mario Kart soundtrack:



Skip to 7:26 if it doesn't start there already.

It also has an explicit Sonic 2 reference at 8:37

Was watching a video that I think urvile posted on FB about some of Kondo's influences and they covered some familiar territory (that one Friendship song that was ripped for Underground Theme, the T-Square song that influenced Ground Theme), but I didn't know about this early Deep Purple epic that seems to have had a pretty big influence on LoZ, especially the bit that first appears at 2:00 in this video

1:56 reminds me of some NES game but I can't remember which one. Batman Return of the Joker?
