Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up
Thanks to RickAstleyVEVO for hosting this video!
Back in 2008, when we were all being Rick Rolled – which I never did to anyone and no one ever tricked me with
I recall that this song sounded awfully similar but I couldn’t place it. I sort of like the song, so I wouldn’t have minded listening to it if I ever was linked over to it.
It wasn’t until I was on the GameFAQs Chrono Trigger page, that someone commented that it shared the same beats to Robo’s Theme
Thanks to YouTuber Squee36 for hosting the video and possibly, mixing the two songs.
Ever since, the two songs are forever linked in my mind.
Above is a fun interview wherein Yasunori Mitsuda is first shown the Rick Astley classic.
Never Gonna Give You Up came out in 1987
Chrono Trigger came out in 1995
Fun how two different men in two different countries (in two different decades) can come up with the same melody. Glad Astley and his team didn’t try to shut down the theme song, once people started talking about it.
You are welcome! Thanks for reading!
