Recently my wife and I were listening to the double LP “Music for Keyboard 1935-1948”. My wife pointed out that the boss theme from Super Mario Bros. 2 is strikingly similar to portions of Cage’s Metamorphosis. (Actually her words may have been, “This music makes me want to fight Birdo.” I could be misremembering though.)

You be the judge:

Sidenote: “Music for Keyboard 1935-1948” has superb album art. The following image is from Discogs, where you can also find more information about the album.
