  1. i still think a huge misstep in generations was not making the new version of "sonic boom" the theme song of the game

      No way. The only choices they had for a theme tune was the original and something new entirely. Using any other track wouldn't work because they are so specifically themes for individual games. They don't represent the series as a whole. 

      Although the Jun's random guitar and S4-esque dying cat mash up wasn't great either...

      @Blue Blood I see what you mean, but I was so disappointed by the actual theme that I can't help but feel like the "original Sonic theme song" would've been the best choice

      at the very least shoulda been the final boss theme

      But Sonic Boom was never the original theme song. It was the localised theme for an (at the time) obscure entry. I'd argue that even something like Live and Learn is more iconic and deserving (but still totally, 100% wrong).

      I think the song "Sonic Youth" kinda fit as well. I mean, it was being written and finished about that time and references a lot of Sonic music, while tipping the hat to fans.

      I personally think the Final Boss music was perfect. It had very intense lyrics

      I do have to wonder whose job it was to bring every actor into the studio and hand them each the same index card to read

      @Blue Blood I think "Sonic Boom" works simply on the level that it's a celebration of what Sonic is, and it's possibly the oldest song with lyrics to be found in the series. I like "Live and Learn" as much as the next guy, but I can't make an argument for it being a better theme song aside from "it's good." Like, at the very least, you could say "Open Your Heart" would be better simply because it's the series' first butt rock theme

      It's still the theme song for CD though, and only the American version at that. Live and Learn absolutely doesn't work for Generations, but it's more iconic and recognisable on the whole. Basically, I'm saying that Live and Learn would have been the best choice, and it still would have been crap. It's the original theme, or an original theme.

      @Blue Blood I gotcha. Maybe if they had been less afraid of a new cheesy theme song I would have been more satisfied. Because as much as I like to laugh at them, they really were an enjoyable part of each new game for me. Forces doesn't have my hopes up in that regard

      Oh really? I think the Forces theme sounds great so far. I'm looking forward to hearing the full version without lyrics and a placeholder lead instrument.

      I can agree with the logic both for and against Sonic Boom.  Sonic Youth does work surprisingly well though.


      In my head, if I had to assign "a vocal theme" to every game, I feel City Escape Act 1 ends up being the most memorable and iconic that Generations DID provide us.

      Personally was hoping Back in Time was the theme since it makes SOOO much sense given the events of Gens
