I know that Michael Jackson was a large influence on Howard Drossin and company's Sonic 3 & Knuckles soundtrack. Sega finally revealed that after many years of speculation.

But besides Sonic 3, I don't know.

Well the Ending track seems inspired by The Bangle's Eternal Flame in the chorus.

Another thing, which isn't really gonna help, is that the opening chords for Metropolis Zone sound pretty much the same as a The Band song (a 70s rock/folk band) but I've forgotten which one.

I always thought of Metropolis Zone when I heard this song! :)

It's actually very fitting for the zone. There's a lot of spinning gears and wheels in that place. ;)

Oh, and the the Ending Sequence with Tails saving Sonic in the ultimate act of pixelated "bro'mance":

Such a pretty melody. :)

Good female singer! 1:55 is where the Bangles sounding part starts.
