I was wondering whether anyone has spotted any music that may have influenced Monkey Island? Over the last year or two I've accidently found some, that I believe to be fairly possible inspirations due to
a) both bands being influenced by Caribbean style music
b) both pre-date MI
Annoying thing is, even though they remind me of MI, i cannot pinpoint which exact parts of the soundtrack.
Here's a Spotify playlist I created so you can listen to the songs for free. (EU only I believe): http://open.spotify.com/user/xgfx/pl...AtL9LW9nkCoQsu
Otherwise the songs are as follows:
Madness - Grey day : I think this song reminds me of Melee forest theme, I can't quite put my finger on it though. (http://www.scummbar.com/mi2/MI1-CD/1...9%20Forest.mp3
The Police - Walking on the moon : unsure which this reminds me of, think it's just the rhythm more than anything.
The Police : Wrapped Around Your Finger - this one just reminds me of some of the effects used in the backgrounds of the music rather than a song itself. I think it's the Monkey Island background music.
