Duran Duran = Battletoads?
These songs sound really, really similar. I just attempted to put it into an easy to observe format.

And as far as the mixing goes, I can try, but this is about the extent of my editing skills. It took me a really long time to even do this...

I thought you made this without knowledge of IS THIS BATTLETOADS. It was I who was mistaken. Kung-fu fight, behind the grocery store. Bring your own weapons. Safety is not guaranteed.

Funny man. I remember how frustrating Battle Toads was. I would get through the first two levels or warp to the third level and always die by smashing into a wall when riding those hover cars.

I'm not surprised. I'm sure if people look hard enough they would see more video games that use techno versions of popular songs.

For the record I didn't get this from anywhere. I just heard the Duran Duran song and have a good memory when it comes to video games, so I made the connection. I remembered the Duran Duran song from one of the Stephanie test sites, and was like OMG I know where that's from.

The game developers were just being unoriginal c*ckf*gs when it came to music, obviously.

"The game developers were just being unoriginal c*ckf*gs when it came to music, obviously." If you've written the tracks for 80% of Rare games, you're bound to use an outside source sometime. David Wise is a genuis.

I've been playing Gears of War and it struck me how similar it's music is to Predator's music. The two main theme songs are almost identical.
