Whenever anyone talks about music from games and actual songs, this is always the first combination that springs to mind.

 

 

Really surprised it wasn't on the list.

Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot" is a complete rip off of Kirby's Theme (the dreamland music, I think).

 

Edit:

 

 

Edit: Wait...there's more

Rick Astley's is very similar to Robo's theme from Chrono Trigger.

 

Man, that game has some impeccable music though.

Interesting article.

 

Never Gonna Give You Up ripped the baseline from Trapped by Colonel Abrams but no one mentions that.

Oh yeah... And then there's Spring Yard Zone in Sonic, that I swear, it sounds like a sitcom opening I heard once.

 

Broadcast Yourself
Audio

 

But I can't remember exactly what show it was...

If by "influenced" you mean "ripped off" then sure :p

 

I didn't realize so many were such blatant copies. I only knew about the Under Logic/Move Any Mountain and Fighting in the Street/Pump up the Jam - the rest were a shock.
