  1. Yeah, mostly true (I'd say Link Wray was also a progenitor of the instrumental rock sound which became surf), but I'd like to try establishing more stark similarities in this thread, rather than stylistic ones.
  2. In the spirit of also hopefully discussing contemporary music's influence on videogame music, I offer this comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quXxpZt_k7k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOh7D5n6FGA It's not a ripoff or anything, but it's clear what Nobuo Uematsu listens to (aside from Elton John, that is).
  3. Wondering if anyone knows about the jazz songs that the original Super Mario sound track was based on. I believe 1-1 was a big band song or something like that. I very clearly recall the invincibility tune being taken from a bossa nova song (whose melody was eventually incorporated into the SMW2 invincibility theme). Also the underworld theme was taken from an 80s jazz funk song. I can't remember where I found any of this information but it would be greatly appreciated, as well as an opportunity to discuss videogame music's inspiration.
