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

EDGY Shadow the edgehog best sonic song with escape from the city, follow me, and reach for the stars behind it.

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.

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.

2 Escape from the City - Sonic Adventure 2 Escape from the City - Sonic Adventure 2 Cover Art

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.

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

3 Open Your Heart - Sonic Adventure Open Your Heart - Sonic Adventure Cover Art

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! "

This is my favorite song from the franchise

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

4 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colours Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colours Cover Art

I'm gonna reach reach for the stars, although they look pretty far...

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.

5 His World (Crush 40) - Sonic '06

I listen to it every time, and to be honest, it is kinda better than the original one, but I don't know, I love it!

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.

Absolutely fantastic song. I used to listen to this on repeat on my mp3 player when I was like 8.

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

6 Endless Possibility - Sonic Unleashed

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

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

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

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

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

Say what you want about some Sonic games (especially 06) but they never disappoint in the music department. This song is no different.

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

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!

9 What I'm Made Of - Sonic Heroes What I'm Made Of - Sonic Heroes Cover Art

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

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

Amazing

one of my

10 Knight of the Wind - Sonic & the Black Knight Knight of the Wind - Sonic & the Black Knight Cover Art

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

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!

The Contenders

11 Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes

SaNiC hErOeS! sAnIc HeRoEs! Jk. This song is great and I wanted a remix of it in Team Sonic racing if Charmy was playable for his ultimate.
One can only dream.
Team sonic racing: Mario kart and Sonic heroes had a child

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

Amazing song from my favourite game.

Yeah because we're sonic Heroes!

12 His World (Zebrahead) - Sonic '06

Upbeat opening and the lyrics go quicker. "Runnin' back again, well what you expect? " (sorry if I got it wrong)

13 Infinite - Sonic Forces Infinite - Sonic Forces Cover Art

♪When everything you know has come and gone
Only scars remain of who I was
This pain persists
I can't resist
But that's what it takes to be INFINITE!♪

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!

14 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

15 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.

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.

16 Fist Bump - Sonic Forces Fist Bump - Sonic Forces Cover Art

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.

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

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

17 This Machine - Sonic Heroes This Machine - Sonic Heroes Cover Art
18 Metropolis Zone - Sonic 2 Metropolis Zone - Sonic 2 Cover Art

Classic stage from a classic game. Sad this wasn't the choice for a Sonic 2 stage in Sonic Mania. Woulda loved a remake of the stage and remix of the song.

19 Never Turn Back - Shadow the Hedgehog Never Turn Back - Shadow the Hedgehog Cover Art

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.

One of my favorite songs ever!

20 Free (Crush 40 Version) - Sonic Free Riders Free (Crush 40 Version) - Sonic Free Riders Cover Art

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

Love this song! Super catchy and fun!

My number 2 sonic songs

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

21 Super Sonic Racing - Sonic R

Super Sonic Racing! Try to keep your feet right on the ground! Super Sonic Racing! There's no time to look around!

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!

22 It Doesn't Matter - Sonic Adventure 1 It Doesn't Matter - Sonic Adventure 1 Cover Art

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*

23 His World - Theme of Sonic the Hedgehog - 2006 E3 Version His World - Theme of Sonic the Hedgehog - 2006 E3 Version Cover Art
24 Egg Golem Theme - Sonic Adventure 2
25 All Hail Shadow - Sonic 06 (Crush 40)

Okay I like this version better than the one from Shadow the Hedgehog but no offense to anyone who like the Shadow the Hedgehog version better. Just my opinion.
