In my opinion the music in the series has gone downhill recent years, so no surprise, all of my favorites are from the classic era up into the dark age.

 

The original Toot Toot Sonic Warrior.

 

Icecap 1 from Sonic Adventure.

 

The 2-player city stage theme from Sonic Heroes.

 

Hot Crater act 1 from Sonic Advance 2.

 

The Dusty Desert Quicksand theme from Sonic 06.

 

The Sonic 3 sub-boss theme

Usually, a topic like this wouldn't stay open as it so far is primarily composed of lists which is against the rules due to them not contributing to discussion. But seeing a topic like this last was made in 2012, I believe the topic could stay open due to it's potential for discussion, as long as there are no lists and explanations are given for each one of your choices that are mentioned. Feel free to mention as many songs as you like with an explanation of course as to why that song is your favorite in the Sonic series. Otherwise, this topic will not stay open.

 

I might as well answer the question and mention my favorite Sonic music track while I'm at it...

Sonic Colors: Planet Wisp Act 1 This has to be one of the most beautiful tracks that I have ever heard in my entire life. I remember the first time I heard it I felt like crying because it was so beautiful. I was totally mesmerized by it, totally amazed with the piano and bass together. I had listened to it over and over again for hours that night as I couldn't stop listening to it. I also enjoyed the level select as well as the Act 2 and Act 3 remixes of Planet Wisp as well as it is definitely the level in the Sonic series that has my favorite music. smile.png

 

I have to give a runner up mention to this Sonic song here:

Sonic 3D (Saturn) Music: Rusty Ruin Zone Act 1 When I was first introduced to this song, I was immediately hooked. Despite the calm tune it has an adventurer vibe to it. I truly believe in a matter of time it will override Planet Wisp 1 as not only my favorite Sonic song in the series, but my favorite in the video game genre period as the song is that beautiful and one I can listen to repeatedly for hours no problem. Act 2's track is gorgeous as well. wink.png

I'm gonna list my favorites and - as per the guidelines - provide a few reasons for each. Here we go!

 

Hydrocity Zone Act 2

 

Bar none, this is my favorite song from the classic trilogy. Hydrocity Act 1 was already a swanky jazz tune, and a perfectly catchy number in its own right, but then act 2 comes along and mixes it up into something amazing. 

 

Check it; This song starts out frantically, as you're caught off guard and have to quickly run from the advancing wall of death. It's timed perfectly, so that by the time you've safely outran the wall, the song shifts to this sweeping, downright majestic melody as you hop out of the water and gaze upon the grand hall of platforms and loops before you. It's great, and suits the mood of the level incredibly well. Classic Sonic had a bunch of amazing songs, but this is the one I always find myself coming back to, again and again.

 

E.G.G.M.A.N.

 

Come on, surely you eggs-pected me to include this one (Not sorry). It's the theme of my favorite Sonic character, and man, does it ever suit him.

 

One thing you'll notice is that the other characters' themes are more - shall we say - figurative in how they describe their subject. They allude to their focus character, their philosophy, their outlook, etc. "E.G.G.M.A.N." has none of that, and just bludgeons the listener over the head with who Eggman is and what his goals are - conquering the world and crushing Sonic, all while saying Eggman's name over and over. It's the polar opposite of subtlety, and while I'd normally dislike that, it totally fits Eggman's bombastic and egotistical personality.

 

And those are just the lyrics; The song also sounds awesome as well, with a catchy rock instrumental and expertly-delivered vocals by Paul Shortino. The whole song is a masterpiece, and I love it.

 

Every Single Rouge Level

 

I'm leaving Egg Quarters here, because it was my favorite of the bunch, but seriously, all of Rouge's level music is some of the best BGM in Sonic Adventure 2, if not the best level BGM in the entire 3D series. I've always been a huge fan of both jazz and funk, and Rouge's stages deliver with some of the smoothest tunes in the franchise. They get stuck in my head, and fortunately are quite welcome there. I'm not even a huge fan of Rouge as a character, but her musical motifs are top-notch as far as I'm concerned.

Sonic games has wonderful music tracks, and there are many that I come to love. But my favorite one is this:

His World (Zebrahead ver.)

 

Tbh I haven't played Sonic '06 and I found this song on a video that's completely unrelated to Sonic '06. I first heard this song on a video of Orange Roofs/Rooftop Run Day stage gameplay. Instead of the original Spagonia ~ Rooftop Run Day soundtrack, the uploader replaced it with this song (along with Zebrahead's Rescue Me). Combined with the speedy stage, this music track fits like a glove.

 

My interest in this series had been dormant for years since Sonic Adventure. I didn't even know that there's Sonic Adventure 2! So I became curious about the other Sonic 3D games and the sheer speed of Sonic Unleashed day stages blew my mind. I know some people don't like the boost system, but I think it's really exhilarating and feels like the closest one to the Sonic's speed. The video of Orange Roofs/Rooftop Run Day stage gameplay I mentioned above is the one that hooked me back into this series, that's why this song always have a place in my heart <3

 

I still watch the video too sometimes smile.png

 

 

As for the stages, my favorite so far is this:

 

Adabat ~ Jungle Joyride Night

 

I find it really really calming and pleasing to the ears (too bad the battle music drowned it out quite frequently). I really like the cello, piano, and gamelan-like music on the background too; I feel some familiarity from it since I've played gamelan on my elementary school days.

This and pretty much every single music in "Sonic 3D Blast (Saturn/PC)". It completely gutted the Genesis version's soundtrack. I listen to the Saturn version of "Diamond Dust Zone" every Xmas (both acts). My other favorite song is this from "Sonic Heroes":

I haven't played many of the Sonic games, but from the ones I have played, here are a few of my favorites.

 

*list*

 

Seeing that the rules in regards to how to post in this topic were not followed with these posts, I am going to assume that they weren't read as they were mentioned in These posts are unacceptable as they lack explanation as to why they are one's favorite Sonic songs as posts consisting of lists are against the rules due to them lacking discussion value, which is the purpose of topics here at the SSMB.

 

As for everyone else wishing to post in this topic, please do not make posts solely of lists of your favorite Sonic songs, including only YouTube links. Music in the Sonic series is one of the things that is enjoyed by most of the fanbase and it would be nice to be able to have an actual topic to discuss our favorites, provided that we actually discuss our favorites as opposed to simply listing them. As a final warning: if the latter continues to happen in this topic with the exclusive lists, it will be locked, so please don't ruin it for your fellow members who would actually like to discuss their favorite Sonic music tracks here.

I've always loved Sonic games for their music. Such awesome, high-quality tunes. A couple of my favorites include;

 

 

Supporting Me - Sonic Adventure 2

 

Favorite song in the entire series, by far. I've always been a fan of the more darker, ominous-sounding tunes present in gaming music and this is a good example of that. I know this is technically the Biolizard's theme, but I've always considered it more fitting for Shadow. To me it seems to represent the character development he's gone through... and foreshadowing his eventual fate at the end of the game.

 

Jungle Joyride (Night) - Sonic Unleashed

 

A very close second favorite. Unleashed has my favorite soundtrack in the series and I love how varied the music is in it. And this one will always be a total gem to me. I love the violin and piano present and find that they flow very well with one another. Amazing song.

This is just the perfect track for relaxing on the beach on a summer afternoon. A lot of people love "The Inlet" portion of Wave Ocean's music, but for me, the standard stage track just takes the cake. I was so thrilled after unlocking it in Generations, it's usually the music track I play over Modern Sky Sanctuary.

Sonic 06 is starting to rival Adventure 1, CD, and Unleashed's soundtracks, in all honesty. I just love how varied the entirety of its musical choices for its levels are, and a lot of it is incredibly easy on the ears.
