    Default Sonic 3 + Michael Jackson?!

    Found this interesting thread on GameFAQS:

    http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/gen...topic=23275823

    Hard to say if it was true, but it makes you think.

    "Sonic 3 (also called Sonic & Knuckles) was a lot of fun, but it was also very difficult. Michael Jackson was originally brought in to compose all the music for the game, but at the very end, his work was dropped after his scandals became public. This caused a lot of problems and required a lot of reworking. But the game turned out great in the end."

    I wonder if Jackson's original Sonic 3 soundtrack was stored away somewhere.. that would be a highly curious listen.

    I've never particularly been one for ol' Jackson's music, but I really would like to hear his Sonic 3 soundtrack. With a completely different musical score, I wonder how it would impact the Sonic 3 experience.

    That's the story, hadjquest. He's apparantly a big Sonic the Hedgehog fan and somehow worked out a deal with Sega to compose the soundtrack for Sonic 3. Rumour has it a good number of tracks had been completed, but due to the scandal at the time Sega canned Jackson's Sonic 3 works. No record of them exists today, as the story goes..

    Sorry to bring up an old topic, but look! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbVM-l2Oku4

    Evidence that MJ's music is still part of sonic 3 despite the scandal.

    I'm still of the opinion the sound team of Sonic 3 were inspired by Jackson - not directly working with him in the sense 'hey Jacko, come and record some funky beats for our new Sonic game plz'. What hard evidence other than a few chords sounding the same - generic, well-used chords at that - is there to back all this up?

    .... Umm... I dunno. I hear that when you play one of Jack's songs fast it sounds just like a certain Sonic 3 tune, not that that means anything. It sounds to me that Jackson fans that like Sonic are simply thinking wishfully/like conspiracy theories.

    I never knew any of that, although I always thought the Launch Base "Go" sounded a bit like Jackson.

    Some of the songs do sound like Jackson watching that video. I believe theres something to the rumor.

    Besides, MJ is awesome.

    Like how you hear the Beatles saying 'Paul Is Dead' when you play their records backwards? The point is, if you listen expecting to hear MJ, you'll hear MJ.

    Wishful thinking and coincidence, is all.
