Michael Jackson's Moonwalker/Development

From Sega Retro

Back to: Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.


The stage Woods originally featured music from the song Thriller, but late in development it was realized the song was not written by Michael Jackson (instead being written by Rod Temperton) and Sega CS lacked the rights to its release. The offending music was quickly replaced with Another Part of Me, but its associated Dance Magic theme was either overlooked or considered too short to violate copyright, and can be heard in early copies of the game. A later revision removed this Dance Magic theme altogether.
