Sonic Boom: Michael Jackson lives on in classic video game soundtrack
Posted: December 03, 2009, 2:14 PM by Adam S. Miller

 
Rumours have been swirling since 1993, and orchestral composer Brad Buxer finally confirmed in the latest issue of Black & White magazine (a French publication dedicated to reporting on everything MJ) that Michael Jackson played a big part in the composition of the music for the classic Sega Genesis video game Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Specifically, it is said that the ending credits are very similar to MJ's and the game helped develop the chord arrangement for the song "Stranger in Moscow."  The interview with Buxer, who had worked with MJ on many musical projects in the past, reads as follows:

B&W: Can you clarify the rumor that Michael had in 1993 composed the music for Sonic 3 video game, for which you have been credited?

Buxer: I've never played the game so I do not know what tracks on which Michael and I have worked the developers have kept, but we did compose music for the game. Michael called me at the time for help on this project, and that's what I did.
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. 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...

B&W: One of the surprising things in this soundtrack is that you can hear the chords from Stranger in Moscow, which is supposed to have been composed later...

Buxer: Yes, Michael and I had composed those chords for the game, and it has been used as base for Stranger in Moscow. [...]

There are conflicting reports that MJ dropped out in the end due to either rising controversy surrounding his court cases or as noted in the interview, his general frustration with the audio output of the Sega Genesis console. Either way it's good to see this rumour finally confirmed, and the legend of MJ lives on in what is no doubt his greatest musical contribution ever. To read everything you could ever possibly want to know on the topic, check out the  Sonic Retro Wiki which has an organized collection of all things related to the Jacko-Hedgehog controversy, or check out this YouTube video that compares songs from MJ and the game.
