I want you guys to take a good listen to the "Pounding Fathers" track from Season 1, and then take a good listen to "The Office."

Pounding Fathers (skip to 0:15)
Office

Jared-Emerson Johnson is awesome, and this just makes him awesomer.

    And superball has an awesome voice.

    No, Superball is voiced by Peter Barto, who also voices Peepers.

    Jared voices the full roster of C.O.P.S -except Chippy, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be that he's also voicing him-, but I'm unsure if he voiced another character from Sam and Max games. He did voice Marquis DeSinge from ToMI though and it sounds nothing like any of the COPS.

    When I heard that on the soundtrack disc...it had me scratching my head for weeks. I KNEW what it was, and that I'd heard it, but I just couldn't get to the spot in my brain where it was stored(with all the times I've seen Rocky IV and The Hunt for Red October)...and eventually I FINALLY remembered; but man, that drove me CRAZY, lol.

    I STILL didn't know WHY it was in the game until the next time I played the game it was in...then went, "Oh, DUH!"

  • One of my favorite music self-references in the series is the music in the lava pit Sam & Max find themselves in in the "Christmas Future" of 201 -- it's a demonic cover of the Soda Poppers' jingle (heard throughout season 1 including when Wizzer eats the ketchup cake, and when he drinks soda in the Oval Office) intended as musical foreshadowing. Nobody seemed to notice though, which is probably for the best. We were hoping that retroactively people would catch it but hey :)

    Comparing the two tracks, Jared did a very nice job changing it up so much that it went unnoticed. Slower tempo, deeper tones, but the same basic melody. It's really difficult to notice without actually listening and comparing the tracks, unlike the Bond version of Flint's theme or the sad piano version of this Season's theme.

    Then again, I didn't realize the Charlie Ho-tep song was a demonic version of "Pop goes the weasel."

  • Speaking of sounding similar, it might have just been me, but some of the renditions of the songs that play inside Monster Max, such as the Lounge area, Gym (especially this one) and the Games Room sound like a reworked, jazzed up and up tempo version of the Train Station theme from 205/301.

    Nuh-uh, the best is using the Midtown Cowboys theme as dance music in Jurgen's Zombie Factory.

    Haha that is the best one. And probably the least noticed.

    I believe that is the case. Not sure why that one happened to be honest. Maybe Jared decided to use it whenever characters were in cavernous tunnel systems? Maybe he just had it around and liked it. I know it showed up a tiny bit in the cutscene at the end of 304, whenever Max was normal for a few seconds, between bouts of his powers taking over and mutating him.

    Any idea what song that was? Was it released as a seperate song on the Soundtrack?

    Also, I have no idea if there are any similarities to anything else, but I freaking love this track.

  • It's very similar to the final battle music from 205, but with less vocals, and that's on the soundtrack under the name Absorptio Bullenscens Fatiscores Daemona.
