Elecman Stage is the stage music of Elecman in Mega Man (NES). It was composed and arranged by Manami Matsumae using Yoshihiro Sakaguchi's audio driver. The title is official and the song appears on the official soundtrack album.

The first pulse wave channel handles the harmony, the second harmonizes with the melody and responds. The triangle wave begin the song with the pulses and then provides bass for the rest, the noise channel is drums, and the DMC is unused.

Listeners have pointed out similarities with "Elecman Stage" and the Journey song, "Faithfully." When asked about it, Matsumae explained that it was a coincidence; she had never heard "Faithfully" until someone played it for her to make the comparison.

Sheet Music

The song is track 8 in the NSF file.
