All the problems with licensed music are caused by devs being cheap and not wanting to pay for proper licenses.
There's some weird older games with licensed music still available today digitally with no alterations because they decided to spring for that extra long licensing period like Burnout 3. Meanwhile other games have been removed from sale just for having a single licensed song in the entire game.

It's not just video games. Cartoons like Captain N and Super Mario Bros. 3 had to have major soundtrack overhauls on DVD because of all the pop music they used.

It's understandable with older games and TV shows that couldn't foresee potential rereleases in other formats. But anything PS2 onward has little excuse for not building future releases into the license terms. Back with Sonic 3 it wasn't expected people would ever care to play these games again on later systems.

The Nu music sucks. Jun Senoue is a shitty composer thats been riding on the coat tales of other better sega composers for years. They need to hire somebody else who understands how to make good music. Sonic 4 is all the proof you need that sega is lazy and incompetent and will continue the cycle of shitty games.

I think it was confirmed more or less that Michael was in-directly involved in composing part of the soundtrack. I think he had to bail for various reasons, but left his music team to finish the project for him. hence why people like Brad Buxtor is in the sonic 3 credits and a few other musicians who were generally not associated with video game music. Though Michael apparently dictated some of the beats/ melodies that would be in Sonic 3 to his team.

I think the main issue isn't so much the Jackson state but Brad Buxer. Stranger in Moscow and Jam are different enough from Staff Roll and Carnival Night to have some plausible deniability, but Ice Cap and Hard Times are 1:1 and Brad Buxer is still alive and well to actually get an attorney involved for decades of unpaid residuals. I don't know what sort of contract was involved but SEGA fucked up not securing anything and Buxer fucked up by not making sure if his work made it to the final game or not, and SEGA could've probably gotten away with it had their fanbase not been a bunch of extreme autismos who managed to track down Brad Buxer and made him aware of S3&K's final OST. Decades of residuals yo use the original music might be enough to bankrupt the company a second time unless SEGA and Buxer were to reach an agreement in the form of DLC similar to how Nocturne HD handled Dante.

Yeah, the other guys probably didn't care enough. never seen the Pop Fiction thing. I know it was a big deal when people brought up the Sonic 3 connection. When you piece it together, you can hear the MJ influence in the music. It seems to make the most sense that MJ may only have sent Sega/ his team cassette recordings of his voice making beats/ melodies/ beat boxing. And his collaborative team on this project did the rest. That seems the most likely.

>> No.9035883

Can I get a quick run down. I never really cared about sonic 3 because I hated the level layouts and graphic style change.

I always thought that michael jackson willingly helped out on sonic 3 music because he liked the series, but that is apparently not the case because they are trying to remove the music?

It's almost like when Fox aired 'Do the Bartman' on the day that Michael Jackson died, and just basically said that Michael wrote the song 'Do the Bart Man' and it became a chart topping single for a little while. I was surprised, and not surprised at the same time. Maybe i didn't notice it when I was a kid, that kind of pop music was somewhat still around?
