Take a listen to "Robo's Theme" from Chrono Trigger, composed by Yasunori Mitsuda...
Sound familiar? That's pretty much Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" in all its glory, but did Mitsuda copy Rick's internet meme-rific track?
OriginalSoundVersion was able to play Rick Astley's track for Mitsuda and explain the concept of "Rick Rolling" to him. He replied, "It certainly is the first time I’ve seen this. I’m surprised! That’s the first time I’ve heard of Rick Astley, and it’s interesting that such a phenomenon is happening in a different country. Thank you for your time!"
So polite... Do you think Mitsuda stole the track from Mr. Astley to use as "Robo's Theme" or do you believe him?
