    Super Mario Bros. 3's Water Land (3rd world) map music sounds extremely similar to any Legend of Zelda's Great Fairy theme.

    The warp whistle melody is also Ocarina of Time's title screen song.

    if i listen to any video game music, it has to be an actual song like songs from need for speed, they are actual songs, not special game songs.

    King of Dragons: Mega Man X - Spark Mandril It sounds like the composer revisited a melody he liked from the older game and updated it to fit Mega Man.

    Only a man like Brett Elston with Rainman recall memories could do an article like this on videogame soundtracks.

    The ds remake of ffIV has the same intro song as ffXII and the menu song sounds a lot like the one for ffVII, and no I don't usually pay attention to video game music, I just instantly recognized those tunes.

    Awesome article. The embedded audio clips are also great.

    How incredibly esoteric. This is guaranteed to be in the next TDar.

    Mega Man "stole" from Ghosts n Goblins? Not cool. Brett, you must of spent a long time on this article...

    you forgot to say that link's warp song was the base for the opening theme in ocarina of time how could you miss that

    Luigi's Masion is acually where I first heard Tokata's Song, THEN I heard it just about everywhere else...

    Crap. It took an article for me to put together that a Castlevania tune is in Contra: Hard Corps. Still like the original Vampire Killer better though.

    I don't know if the Doom one really counts, as those secret levels were actually Wolfenstein levels and so it's not surprising they share the same music. In Telltale's Sam & Max Season One, the tavern theme from Bone makes an appearance if you find and look at the Barrelhavern Tavern sign.

    I swear I heard something like that totoka music in banjo kazooie. Maybe around gruntildas lair?

    I remember and owned shadowgate and uninvited. Shadowgate took me years to beat since there were no gamefaqs around then. Got close to beating Uninvited but never did, but saw a walkthru in Nintentdo Power so I at least got to see the ending.

    Brandine: Cletus! Not in front of my parents! Cletus: Now, now, hun. They're my parents, too.

    Obviously the best place to find most of the ones from Kazumi Totaka is SSBB.
