Nothing beats the Mama Luigi song.

Not NES, but the PSX game Wild Arms pretty blatantly rips melodies from Ennio Morricone:

Original (one of the best songs of all time, IMO): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubVc2MQwMkg

That makes sense to me; Wild Arms did seem to have a lot of spaghetti western elements to it.

A good Nigerian friend of mine at work was playing this song, and it has an unmistakeably similar bridge before it goes into the chorus and verses.

See if you can pick it out.

Lucky Dube - Different Colors released in 1993.

tepples would also get a kick out of this... :)

Has it been 3 years already?! :shock:

Oh yeah, that's right-- time moves. :lol: Anyway, it looks like I may have enough new entries to make another video compilation. Here's what I have so far:

???? Ballad of John and Yoko -> ???? Donkey Kong "25m"
1966 Simon & Garkunkel "Scarborough Fair" -> ???? Bill & Ted's Excellent Video Game Adventure (Medieval World)
1967 The Beatles "When I'm Sixty Four" -> 1990 Rescue Rangers (Zone B) [not sure about this one]
1976 Thin Lizzy "Massacre" -> 1990 Silver Surfer (Stage 1) [not close enough, but I used it for the intro]
1976 Kiss "Shout it Out Loud" -> 1990 Mega Man 3 "Dr. Wily Stage 1" [what was I thinking?]
Paul McCartney & Wings "Jet" -> 1992 TMNT 3 "Break Down"
1980 Queen "Another One Bites the Dust" -> ???? Pictionary (Mini-Game 1)
1982 Billy Joel "Pressure" -> 1990 Castlevania III "Pressure"[didn't sound similar enough to me]
1985 Phil Collins "Sussudio" -> 1989 Double Dragon II "Escape to the Forest" [barely sounded similar]
1986 Bon Jovi "You Give Love A Bad Name" -> 1989 Super Spike V'Ball "Exercise"

And here are some exceptional NES -> Rock similarities:

1986 Castlevania "Stalker" ----------------------> 2010 Avenged Sevenfold "Nightmare"
1989 Ninja Gaiden "A Decision -Father's Letter-" -> 2005 System of a Down "Dreaming" [couldn't find a good match]
1990 Dash Galaxy ---------------------------------> 2009 Ewan Dobson "I Know Your Pain"
1990 Last Ninja "Final Battle" -------------------> 1999 Korn "Falling Away from Me"


Last time you guys were a really great help. If you have some more suggestions, I'll be really grateful. (and I'll credit you individually this time instead of just NESdev :wink:)

Scarborough Fair is actually centuries old. Simon & Garfunkel wrote and added the canticle (pedantically, not really a canticle, which seems to be a term meaning "took an existing melody and applied new lyrics to it")

Here's what I have so far: NES / Rock Similarities - Part 2

As you can see, I had just enough to scrounge up another video, but it's just 13 comparisons (and two of them are Elec Man!). :o Last one had over 30! I'd be happy to get around 20 this time.

Thanks to anyone who can help. :)

I don't know if someone else have told you or you have already seemed it, but the music on Totally Rad Stage 2 sound a lot like ZZ-Top's La Grange, at least to me.

Wow! I've never played Totally Rad before. Looks like a cool game.

Act 1 also sounds a bit like Motley Crue's Dr. Feelgood. :o

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll credit you.

Thank you! That's, like 19 now.

I also remembered Earthbound Hippie and Johnny B. Goode. :) R.I.P. Chuck Berry. :(

Edit: It looks like I have a decent amount of comparisons now, thanks again to you guys! If anyone has anything else to add, please post it now.

Edit: Going once...

Edit: Going twice...

Edit: Done! https://youtu.be/L8DaOUnpWS4
