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

Most may say this deserves to be higher on the list, but I don't think it's greater than the ones above. It is a great song, don't get me wrong. It acts as a sort of theme for Sonic and Shadow in the situation they're in. If only you Heard more of it. Clips of it in menus and intros isn't enough. Neither is the final boss.

Good song, but I think it's overrated.

I sense an assault of dislikes coming.

This music is amazing it makes me feel so epic!

At least Crush 40 retired. This band was awful anyway & would've been much better in the Pac-Man franchise.

Sonic The Hedgehog Has Good Music(But It is Not All That Great)

2 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colours

You know what, I have never reached for the stars before... It's night now so... I think I'll try it out!

Cash Cash for the win! And this song really does give you that Sonic Colors vibe.

This isn't just the best Sonic the Hedgehog songs. This is one of the best Video Games Songs EVER. Too catchy and inspirational. Not to mention, the game was FANTASTIC, considering what that time period was like for SEGA.

I love this song

3 Escape from the City - Sonic Adventure 2

Lets all go snowboarding down a hill in a suburban street! That ought to tick off the neighbours!

Let's speed away from a killer giant truck! YEAH!

This one of the most nostalgic, memorable and upbeat song in the series. It is no doubt one of the best. It should be higher than Sonic Heroes. Should even be higher than that, in my opinion.

Of all the sonic game songs, still my favorite.
"Running around at the speed of sound! "

4 Open Your Heart - Sonic Adventure

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! "

I just adore this song. The rock in it is just honey to my ears. - MetalSonic

I tjink it's better than Live and Learn

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.

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

This song has rock, rap, techno and some violin in there. I sing it every day. ITS PERFECT. I didn't mind sonic 06 either.

Best 1

6 Endless Possibility - Sonic Unleashed

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

Favorite sonic song ever when I beat sonic unleased and listened to this song I couldn't help but dance

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

And so I will carry on I really love this song

7 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

I AM I AM ALL KF HERE WE GO BUDDY HERE WE GO STEP INTO MY MYSTERY STEP INSIDE I AM ALL OF I AM ALL OF NEIAM ALL OF ME

8 What I'm Made Of - Sonic Heroes

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

Just...Simply...Amazing...

Amazing

This song is just plain and simply awesome you have to lissin to it and p.s. if you like sonic mixed with platforming and combat this game is for you

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

This song is amazing and unique and perfect and high-tech and emotional and everything. Because it's the theme song for the best sonic character ever (what, I like Silver) makes it even more, nostalgic. I mean, this should be no. 1. By the way, this song is higher on this list than All Hail Shadow, Never Turn Back, I Am... All of Me, Speak With Your Heart and Knight of the Wind. Its not the best song in video game history (that would have to be Surely Someday from Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy) but its number 2

I love Silver and his song! Why do people hate it? I love the tune and the lyrics, it's such a sweet song!

How could you hate such an adorable song? Its just sho cute

Beautiful and gorgeous! Full of the “future” feels and has emotion!

10 Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes

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

Yeah because we're sonic Heroes!

I really liked this song. It's one if the more famous songs here, due to it being the same title as the game, and also it being segas first mufti platform game. But, crush 40 does another great job with this one.

The first game who I played

The Contenders

11 Knight of the Wind - Sonic & the Black Knight

This obviously has to be #1. Perfect song for a perfect game. Its nowhere near as bad as the cheesy lyrics of endless possibilities and live and learn. It talks about his now sonic wields the sword of Excalibur and how he will save everyone. He truly is THE KNIGHT OF THE WIND

I know, drawing 3 times in a row is technically cheating, but you know? I don't care! Both of these songs are epic and rock themed. But the difference is, a change in bands! Crush 40 does the main theme, while with me, the final boss theme is done by all ends

Songs like His World, Endless Possibilities, Aquarium Park, Seaside Hill, and Live and Learn are all great, but Knight of the Wind is just so rad!

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

12 Infinite - Sonic Forces

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.

I absolutely love this song. It truly show someone who has a lot of hate and wants to prove themselves as the most powerful being there is. DangerKids did a great job. Personally I think it should be higher up. Definitely worth a listen for fans of Sonic.

That's what it takes to be INFINITE!

Best song ever to exist in Sonic Forces.

13 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

14 Green Hill Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

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.

This should be higher, this song is a classic.

I really love the green hill zome theme. It brings back many nostalgic memories and is very iconic.

15 Fist Bump - Sonic Forces

I love this song, it has a lot of emotion, and really gives a thought of the game before you get the game! The song goes with anything... no really... its true! BEFORE I SAY GOODBYE TO YOU, ONE MORE LAST 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

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

The latest and the best song ever please listen and vote for it and also try the game ITS LIT! has rap and pop elements

16 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

17 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

18 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.

19 Never Turn Back - Shadow the Hedgehog

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.

AWESOME! #1 song EVER!

20 Rival Battle - Metal Sonic (Stardust Speedway Bad Future)
21 This Machine - Sonic Heroes
22 All Hail Shadow - Shadow the Hedgehog

Awesome song

23 Green Forest - Sonic Adventure 2
24 We Can (Team Sonic Theme Song) - Sonic Heroes

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

This is huge!

BEESTT SONIC SONG EVER!

25 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.

26 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

27 Sky Sanctuary - Sonic 3 & Knuckles
28 Spagonia (Rooftop Run Day) - Sonic Unleashed

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

BEST OST EVER!

29 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!

30 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*

31 Emerald Hill Zone - Sonic 2
32 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

33 Scrap Brain Zone - Sonic 1
34 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

I absolutely love this song!

35 Holoska Day - Sonic Unleashed
36 Metropolis Zone - Sonic 2
37 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!

38 Big Arms Battle Song - Sonic 3
39 So Much More... - Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing
40 Chaos Control - Shadow the Hedgehog

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

Songs ruined the whole Sonic franchise.

41 Ice Cap Zone Act 1 - Sonic 3

I hate sonic 3 but this song is awesome

How is this not higher, seriously?

This should be higher

Best level theme in the best 2D Sonic. enough said.
