Hi. Don't know where to share this. Recently started watching Accel World and HOLYSHIT I got to episode 2 and the part where Black Lotus was talking to Hiro and the background music REALLY reminded me of something. I listened closely and... if you start listening at around 07:25, listen to the BG music very closely and now listen to

Don't you hear the similarity? it's ALMOST as if it's from the same song. Pandemic 2 is an online game where you can play as a virus, it is basically a strategy game.
Also, am is it me that is paranoid that I can't seem to find an Accel World episode 2 part 1? Only part 2? It looks like Part 1 was deleted due to copyright or whatever, this video is the only one remaining.
I also can't seem to find this one track used in this scene in any of the OST albums.
Compare this

to that

What the hell? Did Accel world copy OST from a online virus game from 2004 or am I an idiot and this music sample is actually widely used?

This is the OST album http://www.amazon.com/​Accel-​World-​O-​S-​T-​Feat-​Mintjam-​10003-​13088/​dp/​B008MTGOBK

The track for this OST is 5th track, I can't read it because it appears as boxes.

Here is the track - http://www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=​p3LJFQzBz30&​feature=​share&​list=​PL0DUqvf41Js24PJYINy​OeQbvl8GX1fpZJ

You'll find that it SAMPLES THE exact music Pandemic 2 has.

Wow. Like 4 or 5 of the same notes. That's crazy.

Check out 3:28 of this and see if you can think of an Oscar-nominated theme song that sounds quite similar (and then guess which was published first).

But of course, copying/sampling music has always been a mainstay for composers throughout time. Still, you're living up to the 'derp' name by making this thread for 4 or 5 shared notes.

I suck at music, so every time somebody posts a "this song sounds exactly like this other song" thread I agree completely. Coming from a guy who can't read sheet music and can't whistle or hum in tune, they sound like the same song.

I suck at this game. Is it Pirates of the Caribbean? Embarassed

Anyway, there are a lot of shitty things about Accel World, complaining about a minor [?] musical rip-off or whatever seems very petty compared to all the other terrible stuff in the show.

There's millions of songs and only so many notes out there, you're going to get songs that have similar sounds. I can't say that this definitely represents copying.
