Someone Finally Combined Phil Collins and Donkey Kong Country 2

Back around 2007, upon playing some Donkey Kong Country 2 on the Wii virtual console with my family (we never owned the game on the original SNES), my oldest sister tells me that “Bayou Boogie,” the swamp bgm, sounds like “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collins. So she plays video of the song on Youtube, and the similarity bitch-slapped my face raw. Go on videos for Bayou Boogie, and you’ll see comments comparing the song to “In The Air Tonight.” Well, on March 16, 2010, a Youtuber by the name of mx31619 made a mash-up of the two, and they fit like a hand in a mitten. But that’s not all. He even used the drums in Lockjaw’s Saga (around 3:02) and the synth of Mining Melancholy (3:44). By far this is the best mash-up of videogame music since Sonic and Kirby.
