Robo’s Theme – Never Gonna Give You Up

Kotaku kind of ruined Chrono Trigger / Robo’s Theme for me the other day, pointing out the theme is basically just Never Gonna Give You Up (combined here). I would have never noticed. The interesting part is the composer of the Chrono Trigger soundtrack, Yasunori Mitsuda, swears he never heard of Rick Astley before:

“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!”

Kind of off topic, but searching for a Robo image I came across this blog of a guy who’s basically made every single 2D video game character out of pixelblocks. There was one of Robo.
