Further proof Michael Jackson had a hand in the music for Sonic 3
Listen to this track for the minor boss battle
Listen for a sample of Michael Jackson’s voice at the 18-21 second mark. He does his famous “whoo, come on!” It is clearly his vocals on this track.
I remember playing this game and mentioning to my brother that sounded a lot like Jackson. Further proof is that when you put in the Sonic and Knuckles expansion pack, they didn’t use this song.
Sonic and Knuckles has a different style in the music than its part 3 cousin. I am aware that Sonic 3 and S&K are the same game broken into two parts, but the music doesn’t feel as R&B-ish.
