Not a real discovery, I was shocked back in days, and found an interview when he admitted he indeed inspired himself from Ys III on that track.
Like I said before, did you notice that,
listen to Falcom Box '89's Sorcerian at 1:06 until 1:21, and then listen City Hunter Suna no castle no Casanova at 1:26 until 1:57..
Same thing for Shurato second opening (Shining Soul) listen 00:21 till 00:30, and then listen Track 11 "Serios no Shuupatsu" on Perfect Collection The Legend of Heroes II - Disc 2,from beginning till 00:24..
Wah, I always knew that that melody reminded me of something Tom! Thanks for finally solving the mystery.
The big one for me is that, to my ears, a section of Hoshi no Arika from SnK is a blatant lift from Kimi wo Nosete from Laputa. Shuffle a few note durations and you have almost exactly the same tune. I'm sure it can't be an accident when you consider how well known the melody is in Japan, and I doubt they'd think it'd just fly under the radar, so I count it as an intentional homage and figure it's okay to like it. :'D
Everyone knows Kimi wo Nosete anyway, but for reference:
This is one that has been amazing me for a while. Ruined City "Kishgal" from Ark of Napishtim is almost an exact copy of Underwater Rampart from Battle Garegga, which is in turn based on Jupiter Jazz by Underground Resistance!
Mind you, each have some of their own parts, but my point still stands. lol
listen to the get-item jingle in Metroid, then listen to the get-item jingle in any Ys game, and you'll see that Falcom is also guilty of a bit of lifting.
haha that always got me. It sounds exactly the same. wonder what the story is behind that. considering both metroid and the pc-88/MSX versions of Ys came out around the same time, I wonder which came first?
Regarding the Jim Power song, holy crap. That;s about as blatant as you can get. Like Vanilla Ice/Queen and David Bowie blatant.
One that got me, after a friend pointed it out, is a little jingle in a Kid Cudi song. Listen to the jingle before/during the chrous. Starts around :53. Sounds a lot like Terra's theme from FF VI, no?
Alan Shore: Your Honor. I refer you to plaintiff’s exhibit number apple. Eric Yavitch: I beg your pardon? Alan Shore: Apple trash can is picked from God. Eric Yavitch: Huh? Judge Willard Reese: Mr Shore… Alan Shore: Not the years sixty when classic electrons are free. Eric Yavitch: Objection! I think. Judge Willard Reese: Mr Shore, you have a notorious history of courtroom theatrics. If your aim is the force a mistrial, you will be disappointed. Alan Shore: Pillow pants join forces over embargo pylons. You aren’t mailing past honor for the liking of a room. These questions are birthday basements. To end the blue radish in the upside of luxury and sparking a good lizard can only make tears fall in hindsight. Puddles do not ask for why not? It is cheese! Breath and wind. It is cheese. What?
