What does Sonic The Hedgehog and Michael Jackson have in common? No, this is not a pedophile joke. But strangely enough they have a lot more in common that I wish I knew as a kid who was raised on Michael Jackson hits. Check this out!

"According to an interview in the French magazine Black & White—the "official magazine of Michael Jackson"—Jackson's composer and musical director Brad Buxer says Michael was responsible for some of Sonic 3's compositions. The themes that appear in Sonic 3 and some of Jackson's own songs are not a coincidence.

As for Sega and Sonic the Hedgehog lead Yuji Naka's caginess about confirming Jackson's involvement? This may be your answer.

"And if he is not credited for composing the music, it's because he was not happy with the result sound coming out of the console," Buxer said. "At the time, game consoles did not allow an optimal sound reproduction, and Michael found it frustrating. He did not want to be associated with a product that devalued his music..." - Kotaku

You can listen yourself here. I would embed the video but dude asked that people don't.
