Borrowed computer music

Just another example of computer music being used in pop music.

Has anyone heard of the Janet Jackson / Sonic the hedgehog thing ? (I know this isnt Amiga related...)

If you play Sonic the hedgehog on the Master System - either level 2 or a bonus level (cant remember now) - it has a familiar tune.

It is the Janet Jackson song - the one that goes 'Everywhere I go , Every smile I see etc..'

Blatent rip off used about 10 years after the music was written.

I wonder if she was sued for this.....

The worst case of stealing computer music I know of !!!

Check it out..

(Just realised I posted this as a new thread - should have been a reply to an old thread - sorry guys !)

Wink X-files vs. Agony

This thread reminds me to the music used in the X-files TV-series. I think the main X-files-theme by Mark Snow borrows heavily from Psygnosis' Agony.
The loading-music for level 2 in Agony (the one featuring the picture with the waterfalls and demons flying in the sky) has many similarities with it. -Maybe I am just nickpicking...

There was an Ariston commercial (on ... and on ... and on ... and Ariston) that used some music from Robocop on the C64 (I think the highscore music). Somebody please God back me up on this, since none of my C64 owning mates believed me at the time

[edit] Scratch that, it's the title music, and they did, and they took it verbatim the cheeky sods

Hah, I have another one. The title music of Agony.

Does someone know DIMMU BORGIR ? It's a (nordish?) black metal band. Anyway, there is a song from them called "Sorgenskammer" and it's almost identical (listen at 2:20min).

I don't think that it's "borrowed" though. I think both (DIMMU and AGONY) covered an old folk-song, or something...

Cool

The Bombjack tune was a Jarre tune and ripped off by bombjack, However the BIGGEST peice of music ripoff was Zombie Nation which ripped of David Whittakers LAZY JONES THEME. But david sued them for not acknowleging his work and won.

Good on him.

That's NOt actually how it went. The guys at Zombie Nation approached David whittaker, offered something like 4000DM, and he accepted. There were no lawsuits or ripoffing going on. He confimed this himself at the BIT Live Show #1 (you can find a video of his declaration somewhere)
