Michael chose this week's song and delivers this week's factoids:
-Spark Man continues in the Mega Man series' storied lineage of electricity-themed Robot Masters -- right after Elec Man (Mega Man 1) and Volt Man (the weird computer game)
-Spark Man is vulnerable to two special weapons: the shuriken-like Shadow Blade and his own Spark Shock.
-Like many Mega Man tunes, this interesting piece of repertoire features a direct, borderline-'illogical' modulation in the B-section to a different key area (in this case, the IV chord) that nevertheless sounds cool.
-The game's music was composed by Yasuaki Fujita and Harumi Fujita. The latter Fujita gave birth during the composition phase.
-Mega Man 3 is Michael's second-favorite game in the Mega Man universe, tied perhaps with Mega Man Legends.
