It seems to be that the instrumentals of Final Fantasy VII's "One-Winged Angel" could've very well been inspired by Queen's Chinese Torture. Queen was quite popular in Japan.

scroll down to where it says Fianl Fantasy VII, and click on the One-Winged Angel link.

Coincidence?

its like when John Lee Hookers people tried to sue ZZ top over the La Grange riff.......its just a basic blues riff really........but I dont doubt that that may have indeed been ispired by Chinese Torture...I kept waiting to hear some Red Special while listening to that :)

Some influence, but seems more classical.
