Michael Jackson composed music for Sonic 3
After years of rumor and speculation, a new interview has confirmed that some of the tracks in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 were indeed worked on by the legendary Michael Jackson. Black & White magazine conducted the interview with Brad Buxer, who is credited for the game's soundtrack.
Brad Buxer: "I've never played the game so I don't know which tracks the developer kept from what Michael and I both worked on, 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. If he is not credited for composing the music, it's because he was not happy with the resulting sound coming out of the console. At the time, game consoles did not allow for optimal sound reproduction and Michael found it frustrating. He didn't want to be associated with a product that devalued his music"
