Video Game Music of the Week – 05-11.11.2012

Speaking of Sonic soundtracks, a rumour has been floating around the internet for a very long time regarding the involvement of Michael Jackson in the composition of the Sonic 3 OST. He was never credited, but multiple sources including Brad Buxer and Cirocco Jones, two of the (other) composers for the game, claim that he did some work, the latter even lists levels 2 and 3 as being done by Michael (it’s a rather unorganised page, just do a word search for “Michael Jackson”). And here, I’ve got one of my favourite songs in Sonic 3, which also happens to be in the second level of the game, Hydrocity Zone. Perhaps the work of Michael Jackson himself.

Composer: Michael Jackson (?)
Game: Sonic the Hedgehog 3
Song:  Hydrocity Zone Act 2
