So for the past month I've been playing Overboard! on and off and had the title/main menu music stuck in my head.

But today I just started whistling something else. For the WHOLE day I was jamming to a tune I couldn't remember where it was from...
I FINALLY worked out where it was from, and I am here to hand in my gamer license.

If someone cannot instantly recall a track from Secret of Mana, they can't call themselves a gamer.
The rule only applies to people aged 5 to 90. and I am in that age bracket, and am hanging my head in shame right now for not INSTANTLY knowing where it was from.
It's even more humiliating because it's part of the soundtrack to one of only SIX good RPG's ever made.

FOR SHAME!
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

Jokes on you, I've played through Chrono Trigger a half dozen times (and Robotrek once!) on the SNES.

E.V.O.? Check.
Terranigma? Check.
Illusion of Gaia? Check.

After all that, I've played about an hour of Secret of Mana. Maybe I'll play through Evermore first just to be spicy.
