This is somewhat similar to a tribute to Michael Jackson I made.
Some say Michael Jackson helped make music for Sonic 3. However, Brad Buxer was the one who composed the chiptunes. The only reason why people attribute Sonic 3 music to Michael Jackson is because Brad Buxer helped Michael Jackson make his music too!
Oh my has Michael Jackson been an influence on pop culture, he even inspired the color for Sonic's shoes because of his Bad album. His Dangerous album had music similar to Sonic 3 music. Michael Jackson wasn't credited in Sonic 3 due to a scandal.
Its too bad Michael Jackson died last year! RIP 1958-2009
