Best Sonic the Hedgehog Songs With Vocals


The Top Ten

1 Dreams of an Absolution - Theme of Silver (Sonic the Hedgehog 2006)

Ok silver is great that's what I think you can argue about the game but not with this song

Honestly the best sonic song I've heard. And when I first heard it after Silver's story, I got the song will it was playing on my screen. SEGA PLEASE, we need more masterpieces like this. Too bad the game was bashed.

It's a great song in what turned out to be an atrocious game.
I love the upbeat and techno feel of it. It's one of the only good things in the worst sonic title.

Don't knock it till you've tried it. I can TELL you haven't tried it. - Edgehog05

I just LOVE this song! Especially the remix, it is the best! - TheWritingGamer

2 I Am (All of Me) (Shadow the Hedgehog)

I used this song for Dumbo vs Shadow The Hedgehog, and Dumbo easily won by turning into Super Dumbo and beating the crap out of Shadow, and Dumbo easily killed Shadow The Hedgehog. Dumbo won the fight.

An epic victory theme. It just screams "Screw you, Black Doom, you're going down! "

This music made me love rock songs

This music is completely fitting to Shadow. Enough said.

3 Live and Learn (SA2/SA2B)

The main theme for Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. - nazi_zombieguy1911

I made a love song entirely out of this one soundtrack

This is a great song and What I'm Made Of Sonic Heroes

Best Song to the Best game!

4 Open Your Heart (Sonic Adventure/DX)

This one is the best - HeavyRaiden

The main theme for SA/SADX. It is a song that puts me in the kick ass kind if mood - nazi_zombieguy1911

You really feel the vibes you receive from this unlike Live and Learn.

5 Knight of the Wind - Sonic & the Black Knight

No words, other than...

Listen to it. - Noah_Infinity

Listen to the start of this song. Just listen.

Love this song, love it, love it, love it

This song is awesome and amazing and deserves more love.

6 His World (Sonic 2006)

Zebrahead version is the best, but crush 40 comes in close second and the others not far behind

This song gave me eargasm every time

A really great song with a beautiful string opening and amazing guitar solo!

Everything about the essence of sonic and the series summed up in one gift wrapped package of pure vocal bliss

7 What I'm Made Of (Sonic Heroes)

An epic theme for Metal Overlord. Lyrics that let you interpret whose perspective it's from and the best guitar solo I've ever heard. - Edgehog05

Compared to Open your Heart and Live and Learn, this smashes them out of the park. - Noah_Infinity

This song is the "Live and Learn" of Sonic Heroes. It is the perfect song for the game's amazing final boss. The riffs are epic, the lyrics have a few different possible meanings, and the chorus is catchy, but the best part of the song is the guitar solo, which is the perfect blend of melodic and technical playing. This song (especially the solo) is also really fun to play on the guitar.

Why is this so low?
It perfectly suits the final battle with metal overlord, it has amazing lyrics and it tells metal sonic that sonic and his friends are going to defeat him with the power of partnership or as I should say THE REAL SUPERPOWER OF TEAMWORK

8 Endless Possibility (Sonic Unleashed)

Perfectly suits Sonic. Better than It Doesn't Matter, better than Reach for the Stars, better than anything. - Noah_Infinity

Even though I like all of these songs, I believe that this one does the best job of tying up all of the ideas of the Modern Sonic games. By all of the songs, I mean all except for Dreams of Absolution, a textbook example of nauseating autotune.

Cause it's my favorite

One of my favorite vocal songs - Sonamy

9 Reach for the Stars (Sonic Colors)

Upbeat, catchy, and light compared to other heavier songs.

Let's start a lyric chain! Race off at the speed of sound.

Why isn't this 6th or better!? This song is amazing!

I love this song

10 Live Life (Sonic and the Black Knight)

This song is a message to live life to the fullest. - Chaotixhero

This song has an amazing message!

This song is underrated as hell...

The Contenders

11 Escape from the City for: City Escape (SA2/SA2B)

I'm sorry but if you can't sing along to this upbeat, catchy, and energetic song you are a cold, heartless person who can't follow their rainbow.

This song is the most catchy one I've heard and really suits my thoughts of a character that I made up.

I started singing it since Sonic generations and it's still stuck!

I find the up beat of the song very motive

12 Live & Learn - Crush 40

One of my favorite vocal songs - Sonamy

13 Open Your Heart - Crush 40
14 Never Turn Back (Shadow the Hedgehog)

This song is amazing I like the emotional tie it puts forth but also the total awesomeness and it kinda says "This is who I am a hero to the planet" if you complete the Pure Hero end!

It could also mean "I don't care what happens to this planet" if you complete the Neutral ending.

It could also so mean "This is why I'm going to destroy this damned planet! " If you complete the Pure Dark end.

This song is the perfect combo of emotion and badassness. The piano section at the beginning isn't something you'd expect, but it still works. The lyrics are my favorite part though, they're so inspirational and wrap up shadow's story perfectly

15 It Doesn't Matter [Theme of Sonic] (Sonic Adventure)

Sonics theme from 1998 - nazi_zombieguy1911

16 Reach for the Stars (Cash Cash)

I love this song so much! A great song from a great game, and is my personal favourite. It is so hard NOT to sing along to this thing! Not looking back, not giving up, not letting go, I'll keep on running!

Love this song

17 Fight the Knight (Sonic & the Black Knight)

I liked this song, it was good for a little too easy boss. I was stuck on it for a year!

Great song, but on such a terrible game should of had a harder boss.

18 Supporting Me (Crush 40)

The original song is very dark, to say the least. Though, later iterations such as the Generations and Forces remixes are more upbeat compared to the sheer disturbing tone that came with the theme of the pure incarnation of Dr. Gerald Robotnik's hatred and resentment towards the world for all of what he lost, known none other than the prototype of the Ultimate Life Form, Biolizard. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

19 His World (Crush 40)

Lyric chain! "In this world (His world)
Where life is ruff!
In this world (His world)
Life's an open book!
In this world (His world)
Where compromise dose not exist!
In this world of worlds every step meets the risk! "

20 His World (Zebrahead Version)


21 Race to Win (Sonic Rivals 2)

Its awesome to listen to, great lyrics and awesome beats! This is why I love sonic rivals 2! The music and graphics are awesome! - blast

One of my favorite vocal songs - Sonamy

22 So Much More... (Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing)

One of my favorite vocal songs - Sonamy

23 His World [Crush 40 ver.] (Sonic 2006)

Wow! These guys turned a theme song from a terrible game into an amazing and memorable version.

This song has so much more power than the original

Crush 40 (aka sons of angels) version os his world musg I say more? - nazi_zombieguy1911

24 Escape From the City - Classic Remix (Sonic Generations)
25 Ungravity (Sonic Riders Zero Gravity)

I agree with the person who says it's underrated.
Great theme!

This is so underrated. Definitely one of the best. - Noah_Infinity

26 This Machine (Sonic Heroes)

As far as Sonic Heroes goes, this song is a highlight. Not only do I love Team Dark, I love Julien-K as well!
So fitting for them, so AWESOME.

ПWe all danced in fire, trapped in this machine, don't know how long we've waited, as the Eggman's watching. We all danced in fire, looking through the screen, don't know how long we've waited, as the Eggman watches! 🎵 Best Sonic Heroes song!

27 Sonic Boom (Crush 40 vs Cashcash)
28 The Chosen One (Shadow the Hedgehog)

So greatly expresses Shadow's feelings, in one awesome song, It's in one word: Amazing.

29 Fist Bump - Sonic Forces

It’s the best sonic song I’ve ever heard in my life

30 Sonic Heroes (Sonic Heroes)


Great track one of the best put this at 1! - blast

31 Seven Rings In Hand (Sonic and the Secret Rings)


32 Escape from the City - Modern Remix (Sonic Generations)

Cool instrumental at the front! It just gets you active and ready!

Rolling around at the speed of sound, got places to go gotta follow my RAINBOW

33 Sonic Boom (full ver.) (SonicCD)

I liked the ending song a lot more, it had better lyrics and an awesome instrumental track to boot.

I like both the NA and the Euro version but personally I think the euro one is better

I love the lyrics to this song. The people sobbing this also did a great job. And it's just so...sonic!

It's simply the best. Memorable, fitting vocals, epic instrumentals.

34 My Destiny (Theme of Princess Else (Sonic the Hedgehog 2006))

You no have a destiny, Princess Elise the Third.

I love this song. I always singing this song because, I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

35 Unknown from M.E. (Theme of Knuckles: Sonic adventure)


*laughing* "Unlike Sonic, I don't chuckle"? Yep that's Knuckles

Not much to it besides the title - nazi_zombieguy1911

Unlike Sonic, I don't chuckle? Yep makes sense. (Not.)

36 Amy's Theme

Do you mean "My Sweet Passion" from Sonic Adventure 1&2? Why do people hate Amy Rose?!

37 E.G.G.M.A.N (Shadow the Hedgehog)
38 Super Sonic Racing (Sonic R)

One of the catchiest, most legendary themes out there! This is the kind of music that sends shivers down your spine.

You probably wouldn't expect it from a game like this but this is just mind-blowing stuff. As a bonus, the singers voice, TJ Davis, is amazingly powerful! Check it out the first chance you get and you'll believe me for sure.

This song gives me the goose bumps! Very catchy with amazing music! I just love this song too much. Never gets old. - sryanbruen

Sonic is super and is fast. This song is best to tell sonics abilities in a great song

39 Team Chaotix (Sonic Heroes: Theme of Team Chaotix))

This song is just SO awesome. Awesome song for an awesome team.

40 Infinite (Sonic Forces)

Best character ever. Best song ever. I wanna hug Infinite.


I'm the tallest of mountains
I am the roughest of waves
I'm the toughest of terrors
I am the darkest of days
I'm the last one that's standing,
Don't try to stand in my way,
Cause I've been up against better,
Just take a look at my face
Cause if you're messing with me,
I am a dangerous weapon
I am the sharpest of blades;
I'll cut you down in a second
Cause I was born in this pain,
It only hurts if you let it,
So if you think you can take me
Then you should go and forget it
And after all this time, you're back for more
(I won't stop until they know my name)
So I'll take what's mine and start this war
(I'm coming at you like a tidal wave)
When everything you know has come and gone,
(You are at your lowest, I am rising higher)
Only scars remain of who I was
(What I find in the ashes, you lose in the fire!)
When there's no one left to carry on,
(This is an illusion, open up your eyes and...)
This pain ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

41 The Light of Hope - Sonic Forces
42 You Can Do Anything (Sonic CD)
43 Free (Crush 40 Version) - Sonic Free Riders

While I love Zebrahead and Cash Cash, nothing beats the kickass Crush 40. Sonic Free Riders has made ScrewAttack's and MrAlfredoSauce's top pick and's fouth pick on Top 10 Worst Sonic Games, the music is awesome.


44 Catch Me If You Can (Sonic Riders Zero Gravity)

I never heard the song but I heard its quite terrific!

45 Waking Up (Shadow the Hedgehog)

Why is this song 38!? It's AWESOME! Lyric chain! 🎵Waking up, breaking out, this is what it's like to be free! Rip it up, tear it down, this is what it means to be free! 🎵

46 My Sweet Passion (Sonic the Hedgehog)
47 All Hail Shadow - Sonic 06 - Crush 40

Love Crush 40's music! Listen to it all the time! But All Hail Shadow has got to be my favorite so far! Unless a new Sonic game has a new one, but I doubt that.

48 Kick That Rock (Sonic Adventure 2 and Knuckles Theme)

It was the 1st sonic song along with deeper (a leveled theme) and knuckles' main theme have a mild lyrics warning

Um, you have heard of "Unknown From M.E." right? Because the SA2/SA2B has the word damn in it.

49 Super Sonic Racing - Cash Cash Remix (Sonic Generations)
50 Speak With Your Heart (Sonic Colours)

Speak with your heart. This taught me something in life and is a great soothing song
