Two Super Famicom games have music whose melodies sound very similar to each other. Listen to the SPC's and you might hear it.

Airplane - Hourai Gakuen no Bouken!
Stage 3-2 - Super Back to the Future Part II
Noticed another two:

John Madden Football - Theme
Richard Myhill - The Hit

Thunder Force IV - Light of Silence
Perfect Dark - Chicago Stealth

Desert Strike - Main Theme
