Top Ten Best Sonic the Hedgehog Songs

Everyone please note: this list includes level music as well. Enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Live and Learn - Sonic Adventure 2 Battle

That opening riff though

I loved this song, so much rock and roll, so many remix's! I LOVE IT! 1st is it!

The most iconic song from one of my favorite Sonic games. While Unleashed is my favorite game, Live and Learn is just too iconic.

This is the only good number 1 spot on this whole damn website.

2 Open Your Heart - Sonic Adventure Open Your Heart - Sonic Adventure

This is my favorite song from the franchise - HeavyRaiden

Better than the number one song in every way. - EvanWellens

This song gives of an epic vibe every time I hear it. Much like live and learn, this is the main theme of adventure 1, but is heard more, making it get stuck in your head better.

Such a kick ass theme for the theme of Perfect Chaos! I hear it and go, "Right, time to kick watery ass! "

3 Escape from the City - Sonic Adventure 2 Escape from the City - Sonic Adventure 2

Escape from the city...

Must keep on moving ahead

#1 bro

Sonic Adventure 2 had such a great soundtrack, one of my other favorites is That's the Way I Like It-For Metal Harbor.

4 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colours

The epitome of my childhood in all its sonic glory.

Totally made my childhood, very inspirational

Good song and really good game

All around cool, one of my favorites. Anyway I'm off to fight Eggman - Sonic

5 His World (Crush 40) - Sonic '06

Like many Sonic songs, this is both very representative of Sonic the Hedgehog's image and philosophies, and paints life as an exciting adventure or action-packed journey. The part that stands out most to me is the chorus, which is mostly about real life - "Never fear the fall", never be afraid of things that might hurt or hinder you. Just keep going. "Every step meets the rest", everything falls into place, if not now, then in the end.

Another thing is that the background vocals say "His world" while the lead vocals say "This world". This creates sort of a double meaning where what this song is saying is not only from Sonic the Hedgehog's view. It IS "this world". It is reality. All that this song is saying is the TRUTH about this world we live in.

A great song from a bad Game. I still Zebraheads version

Best 1

True that the game its for is rubbish but that doesn't mean the songs are rubbish! Awesome song!

6 I Am...All of Me - Shadow the Hedgehog

I betcha Shadow listens to this song and thinks, "I am all of me, so I think I'll go and beat the living daylights outta Black Doom now. "

A fantastically dark and yet triumphant theme. It fits Shadow perfectly.

I wish this was my theme song. It's so EPIC

Needs to be AT LEAST number 5. This is just so dark and EPIC

7 What I'm Made Of - Sonic Heroes

Honestly, this is probably the best final boss theme in any Sonic game.

1 Comment
8 Endless Possibility - Sonic Unleashed

To be honest Live and Learn is probably the weakest Crush 40 song.

And so I will carry on I really love this song

Best song ever! Most favorite have it recorded on my ipad and when I herd this the first time in the credits I couldn't help but smile

LYRICS CHAIN! (Instrumental) This is my escape, I'm running through this world and I'm not looking back!

9 Knight of the Wind - Sonic & the Black Knight


And I live to rule
By the sword
Slashing through the every inch of the power
The power is you

It's okay I guess. - EvanWellens

Great song indeed! Should be in the top 10 at least.

10 Infinite - Sonic Forces

Amazing song

An INFINITELY good song. I believe it represents the character very well. The song definitely conveys the power and threat that Infinite imposed in Sonic Forces, and it did a damn good job.

Best song ever to exist in Sonic Forces.

Infinitely good. It embodies the need to prove oneself to the world.


The Newcomers

? Live and Learn - Sonic Adventure 2

The Contenders

11 Dreams of an Absolution - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

So many versions, amazing unique sound, great singer, great instruments, overall great song


Other songs are too overrated.


12 Team Chaotix - Sonic Heroes

Awesome guitar and bass mixed in with the rock vocals- this song is awesome.

I think this the best of the team themes

This song is the best song EVER - corisco42

13 Green Hill Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

Green Hill deserves to be at least #3. I guarantee you that even the non-Sonic fans would recognize this theme immediately. THIS was the 90's, this is what you heard when you first learned about Sonic. Green Hill Zone is THE Sonic theme. None of the other themes can compare.

Catchy as heck - EvanWellens

It's just original. This has to be on the list because if this wasn't created the future music wouldn't be created

Should be Higher Up.

14 Fist Bump - Sonic Forces

Together we can show the world what we can do...

It came from a meh game but it's still awesome.

This song makes me want to give SEGA a fist bump!

It's either this the Zebrahead version of His world, which never plays in 06, while this one plays quite some times. - DensestPotato

15 Free (Crush 40 Version) - Sonic Free Riders

This song is great! If only the game was great... - tacoperson

Love this song! Super catchy and fun!

My number 2 sonic songs

This song his super underrated and definitely deserves to be top 5

16 Rival Battle - Metal Sonic (Stardust Speedway Bad Future)


17 Never Turn Back - Shadow the Hedgehog

One of my favorite songs ever! - myusernameisthis

Never Turn Back Kicks Butt The Rock is Good The Beat is Good and the Lyrics is great Crush 40 Thank you For doing that Song and Make a Music Theme For Sonic Boom the Game and T.V. Show

Oh yeah yeah yeah oh it's been a long rough road but I'm move an inch oh I don't even sing it that's how much butt it kicks

This Is the best song from a Sonic game that has ever been released.

18 It Doesn't Matter - Sonic Adventure 1

This deserves top 10!

Sonic: "…as long as the voic inside tells me to run and fight, it doesn't matter who is wrong, and who is right! "
Knuckles: "are you seriously singing that song AGAIN? "
Sonic: *rips out earbuds* NO, no. Who was singing?
Knuckles: *rolls eyes*

19 Metropolis Zone - Sonic 2
20 This Machine - Sonic Heroes
21 Egg Golem Theme - Sonic Adventure 2
22 Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes

Amazing song from my favourite game.

The first game who I played

What goes up, must come down!

Every time I hear that final verse before the last chorus I always get goosebumps!

23 His World (Instrumental Solaris Phase 2 Theme) - Sonic '06

These two tie on the list. Why? Because they're basically the same song, but with different tones. The classic takes a simpler, quieter tone and builds up, while the zebrahead one is bouncy and rock all around.

24 Green Forest - Sonic Adventure 2
25 Chemical Plant - Sonic the Hedgehog 2

This should be top 1. Seriously, Sonic 2 is MUCH better than Sonic Adventure 2!

How is this not higher up? It was my favorite as a kid and still is now.

This is probably my favourite out of sonic 2

This music was the top videogame song in the 90s for me - PampaZapp

26 E.G.G.M.A.N (instrumental) - Sonic Heroes

It is the upper deed, it will succeed, It's mission, yeah, it must complete. It's name is E.G.G.M.A.N. don't forget that name, if you ask it again, I'll type the same.

Also, best Guitar solo ever

27 We Can (Team Sonic Theme Song) - Sonic Heroes

This song is a good song and deserves at least one comment

This is huge!


28 Solaris Phase 2 - Sonic '06

Both of these songs act as the orchestral theme for each game, his world and endless possibility respectively. I like to imagine and epic battle going on when either of the two play, and I switch from which one I like more.

This awesome song was he only good thing in sonic 06.

29 Sky Deck - Sonic Adventure
30 Sky Sanctuary - Sonic 3 & Knuckles
31 All Hail Shadow - Shadow the Hedgehog

Awesome song

32 Werehog Battle Theme - Sonic Unleashed

The only song out of the whole franchise I hate - Chaotixhero

That will NEVER get outta my head

33 Spagonia (Rooftop Run Day) - Sonic Unleashed

One of the best sonic songs that isn't from mania or a original genisis game

Severely underrated, so even though it might not be my all time favorite, I'm giving this a tactical vote


34 Scrap Brain Zone - Sonic 1
35 Emerald Hill Zone - Sonic 2
36 Perfect Dark Gaia - Sonic Unleashed

Epic final boss song from the first good sonic game in years.

The most epic final boss sonic song ever.

Good instrumental of endless possibility

37 Final Fortress - Sonic Heroes
38 Sonic Boom - Sonic CD

Its the first sonic song you have to love it

This should be number one. It's the most iconic Sonic Song out there. It's the song that mostly represents what Sonic is all about, and it's the first Sonic Song with Vocals.

I heard this song in super smash bros brawl! THIS SONG IS AWESOME! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Sonic can do sonic booms because he's a hero

39 Big Arms Battle Song - Sonic 3

No doubt one of the best final boss themes in all of gaming

Very underrated

40 Bullet Station - Sonic Heroes
41 Holoska Day - Sonic Unleashed
42 Aquarium Park Act 1 - Sonic Colours

When I first played Aquarium Park Act 1, I was blown away. The visuals were stunning, but they would be utterly forgettable without the music. The music sounds like an exciting underwater dream with an intro that really draws you in. Once you hear the intro, you're just tempted to hear the rest of this track. It also fits the abundant action in the zone. You're always on the move in Aquarium Park, whether, you're running, jumping, destroying the thousandth robot, or just making your way through the water. Long story short, this track made Aquarium Park unforgettable and it really stood out among the other songs in Sonic Colors. And Aquarium Park's my favorite zone in Sonic Heroes, and the music really influenced that decision.

This song is too good for just being a stage song.

This is by far my favorite sonic song ever!

43 So Much More... - Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing
44 Emerald Coast - Sonic Adventure

This should have been in Smash bros for god's sake! This is good!

45 Chaos Control - Shadow the Hedgehog

This song will never get out of my head. EVER.

Songs ruined the whole Sonic franchise.

46 Ice Cap Zone Act 1 - Sonic 3

Yesss! One of the best game songs! - sonicfangrl82

This should be higher

I hate sonic 3 but this song is awesome

How is this not higher, seriously?

47 Super Sonic Racing - Sonic R

This should be top 1! Screw every Modern Sonic song with vocals! Go with Classic Sonic!

Everybody's super sonic racing gotta keep your feet right of the ground!

48 Final Boss Song - Sonic 2


49 With Me - Sonic and the Black Knight

The lyrics are amazing, I just don't know what it does in a Sonic game, it had so much potential...

Great song, this game needs love

This song rules its just... uhg why don't more people like this song

50 Crisis City - Sonic 06
