I learned a lot from disecting MSX music, especially the more complex songs in Snatcher/SD-Snatcher, the easy-going music in say Dragonslayer VI and the pure melodic 'carrier' in most 80s Konami and Falcom music. So I can't say I am influenced in my compositions by MSX Music per se (you won't hear any existing song in my own songs), but I did learn a lot from MSX Music.

My list would look a bit different btw

If I'm happy I make whatever I feel like making
If I'm in love I write piano ballads
If I'm sad I don't make music at all
If I'm without inspiration I make arrangements (and get inspiration that way)
If I'm lazy I'd make Trance or Dance music
If I'm overestimating myself I write epic orchestral soundtracks
If I'm practically braindead I would make hardcore or metal Tongue

Yes, metal is very braindead music. Any child or idiot could make it. o_O

The same holds for trance (repeat-repeat-repeat-repeat-add extra tjikkaboom-repeat-etc) and ballads (piano, simple chord scheme, violin pad, prego) Tongue

If I'm happy I compose all kinds of weird tunes,
If I'm in love I have better things to do than compose music,
If I'm lazy, I just watch some telly, *hihihi*

It's in Xak 1 and Xak 2 too, by the way.

I wouldn't say so, and I know you wouldn't either... Unless MrRudi thinks Limb Biskit and Korn are metal ofcourse...

Got tons of examples to prove that metal can consist of very complex musical structures.

Iron Maiden is just the tip of the iceberg. In metal it's just the sound that disturbs people and makes them say it's got nothing to do with music, not the melody, cuz they don't waste time recognizing it...
