Name that game tune - request

edited March 2008 in Games and Technology
So I know this forums is scarily good at naming old games based on very small descriptions, maybe you'll be able to help with this one.

I just heard the Dizzee Rascal song "Jezebel", and the tune really reminds me of a song off a game, I thought it might even be a sample, but it's not according to wikipedia.

I have no idea what type of game it would be, I have a vague feeling PC, and it could be some freeware/indie game. It's bugging the hell out of me.

Any suggestions?

    First thing that came to mind from the first note was tetris. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RR_Q3VAyg4I&feature=related

    The riff is very thematically similar to Kefka's theme. At least, that's the first thing it reminded me of.

    Though the forum looks like something that is going to show up on Weekend Web sometime, the message board for Dizzee Rascal's website might be a good place to ask. Odds are if anyone knows where samples in the songs come from, it's going to be addicts like the folks who post there.

    Thing is a don't think it actually is a sample, or it would probably be listed on wikipedia, I just think they sound similar.

    It has a recognizable Chrono Trigger sound, that's for sure.

    I'm pretty sure it isn't sampling anything though.

    Sounds kinda like the music used in the beginning of the first Discworld game. It streams on this page: http://www.lspace.org/games/discworld/faq.html

    I think I probably played it in the last 5 years. But it could be an old game....


    It's none of the suggestion so far.

    I recently heard a song on the radio that pretty much ripped its vamp and general background loop style from Launch Base Zone from Sonic 3.

    Has anyone else heard this song? It was really bugging me.

    When I heard it, I thought: This has to be from Chrono Trigger. I don't think it is though. Wind Scene was pretty close.

    (It wasn't really that close.)

    That one is either called "Final Fantasy" or "Prologue".
