I know that tune!

Are you curious how sometime video game music can sound like something you have heard before? Well this curiosity is an addiction for one of our members. PhilsPhindings is a series of blog post exploring exactly this topic, and we are creating a series of videos to match, called "I know that Tune"

One day some games music enthusiasts embarked on a journey to find pop music that reminded them of the game music that they like. Some pop music reminded them more of their game music than other music. They decided to document their findings in the hopes that it might inspire future generations of composers.
