    Is it me or does Yoshi's Island intro sound similar to the Russian anthem?

    Compare and contrast:



    with


    Note that the music of the Soviet anthem is completely reused for the current Russian anthem.

    Here is the sheet music for both:

    Yoshi's Island intro theme/story music box

    Soviet/Russian national anthem

    Please vote in the above poll; ignore the differences in instrumentation.

    Similar chord progression, no big deal. Happens all the time, and yeah these two songs both have a similar part that's roughly the same notes, same progression, similar tempos, etc. Megaman's where you want to look if you want to hear a lot of this to a degree that's bordering on plagiarism (compare Neon Tiger with the Guns n' Roses song My Michelle).


    What I'm more curious about is why we need so many random topics? Why not just condense them in the OTCD or something?

    Comrades, I must assure you that the playing of the music is purely coincidental. Glory to Bitforums.

    this is a good thread friend Kirbnator but I can't help but feel it's missing a little je ne sais quoi, no? Let me see if...

    no, they have different voice actors.

    He were not hanged. He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they'd hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm. It is the law, for he could not be con-demned a wizard without he answer the indictment, aye or nay... Great stones they lay upon his chest until he plead aye or nay. They say he give them but two words. "More weight," he says. And died.

    While we're on the subject, Professor Sycamore's theme is just a Frenchified Dragon Roost Island.

    Eh, a couple parts sound the same? And by a couple parts, I mean a couple notes out of entire songs. What I'm really saying, of course, is that that they don't sound alike.

    Russian anthem - nice melody. Too bad that it is associated with something bad in people minds.
