Stage 1-1 from Alisia Dragoon. Composed by Mecano Associates.
Theme from the first stage of this 1992 Sega Mega Drive / Genesis game. I got this game right after I bought a Mega Drive from ebay many years. It’s a very difficult game and I’ve never managed to complete it. But I really like the soundtrack. I really like how in this stage the music changes once you enter the second part of the stage. Oh, and it seems to quote or reference a popular melody from 0:50 to 1:00, but I can’t figure out where it’s from.
