Sonic The Hedgehog some Music Part One
I always enjoyed listening to the nice tunes from the early Sonic games. The songs were something special, when you consider the Big N had cutesy songs for their mascot. Sonic’s music had techno and R&B roots to it, which made you want to play the next stage to hear the newest tune.
Before I begin, I liked to say old school Sonic music kicked Mario Brothers’ ass.
Ice Cap Zone Stages one and two (Sonic III)
Comment: As I’ve posted before, many people believe Michael Jackson did many songs for Sonic III. One of the coolest things about Sonic III’s music was that they would have the same theme from in the area, but from Stage I to Stage II or III they would give you a remix of that tune. Listen for MJ’s voice in this song. This is my second favorite song from Sonic III.
Carnival Night Zone (Sonic III)
Comment: This is my favorite song from Sonic 3. It certainly has that hip-hop vibe. Act I is faster than act II, but I like the remixed style of Act II.
Spring Yard Zone
Comment: This has a very RB feel, but most of Sonic 1 songs have this feel.
Star Light Zone
Comment: This is another one that I really enjoyed when I first played Sonic I. It also has a very 80s R&B vibe. Listen for the ring sound used in the music, very clever.
Green Hill Zone
Comment: Ah, yes the classic. Take that, Mario.
Sky Chase Zone
Comment: I like the middle section.
