Main theme inspired by Swedish children's music? Probably not, but...

I just realized that the melody of the main theme in Revelation is pretty similar to the chorus of the song "Banankontakt" with the Swedish children's music group Electric Banana Band. The chorus starts at about 2:55 in this video. http://www.youtube.c...h?v=nq0kMIdD_CE

The guy's cymbals fall off at 3:12, but HE KEEPS PLAYING. That's dedication. :rotflol:

Anyway, the tunes are somewhat similar. I'd put it down as coincidence. There are lots of songs that are eerily similar.
Like the anthem of the Soviet Union, Bylina by Vasily Kalinnikov, and "Go West" by the Village People. :D

They do sound similar, but the chances of the theme being inspired by it are rather small.

I wonder what they're saying in the video. It was kind of strange watching something like that and not knowing what was going on.

Don't bother ... it doesn't get any more meaningful, even if you know the language ... :D

Haha, it's funnier if you understand it.

VI VILL SE, ELECTRIC BANANA BAND! :D (We want to see, Electric Banana Band!)

- Det är en fågel. (It's a bird.)
- Nej, ett plan. (No, a plane.)
- Nej, det är en superbanan! (No, it's a superbanana!)

"Banankontakt av tredje graden" means "banana contact of the third degree". It's a song about some kind of UFO-type superbanana that's landing on the earth apparently.

"Bananerna kommer snart! Var redo!" The bananas are coming soon! Get ready!
