Michael Jackson confirmed as a composer for Sonic 3 (2016 UPDATE)

88 posts in this topic

So it was true. We can at least confirm that SEGA kept and used one of his compositions for the Credits theme.

2013 UPDATE: GameTrailers' Pop-Fiction did their own investigation into this and found that yes, Jackson did in fact compose some of the music that appears in the final game.

Liontamer EDIT (1/25/2016): 

This great read by Huffington Post's Todd Van Luling finally and truly 100% confirms from 3 of the credited Sonic 3 composers that Michael Jackson made music for Sonic 3 and it made it into the game. :-)

Finally, this will shut all the people up who kept saying "LOL ITS JUST A RUMOR." Anyone who heard the chord comparison between Strangers and the Sonic3 credits theme had to have known he was involved!

I'd have thought the fact that Stranger in Moscow and the ending credits for Sonic 3 are pretty much the same song, would have been confirmation enough. Nice to hear somebody actually say it though.

Like how having The Rabbit Joint Cover disclaimer here shut up the people who kept insisting it was by System of a Down? =P

Still, the confirmation is nice.

The internet is 80% porn, 19% rumor mongering, and 1% bash.org quotes. The rest is just filler :P

I want to know how the hell you got someone as big as Michael Jackson to work on a video game in the first place. Geez.

Now if only my dreams of Phil Collins and/or Peter Gabriel scoring full game soundtracks would come to fruition...

As a kid I put two and two together. This was figured out before I saw the video. Once I saw it, I was like, "hell yeah".

Oh my god. That can't be real... :P

Yeah, he also had Sega and Nintendo games in his house. Another reason why MJ was the sh**.

Drossin confirmed this back at his panel last MAG.

In other words, OLDE.

More like, why didn't anyone post about it when they found out? All you MAG 08 attendees have failed us.

"At the time, game consoles did not allow an optimal sound reproduction, and Michael found it frustrating. He did not want to be associated with a product that devalued his music..."

While the majority of us have thought this was true for quite some time now, i'm glad that it finally has been confirmed.

So, it's true. Really awesome, but it is sad to learn it only now.

That was quasi-confirmed at MAGFest 7. Not that we don't trust Howard Drossin (Howard kept it real), but since then MJ's passed away, allowing Brad Buxer (a member of MJ's music team and a person on the inside with Jackson himself) to corroborate those rumors and explicitly state that they collaborated on that credits theme.

YES, no Mod approval needed. Salluz the Sonic Master says YES.
