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.

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 should be number 1 next to open your heart or vice-versa!

It warms my heart and makes me replay the game over and over!

It feels rewarding to play through Sonic adventure 2 'till the end to just hear that song!

It is 4 minutes and a half long.

This is my favourite because some people don't listen to the lyrics. They just listen to the song and that's it. But still, it's a bit overrated.

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

"Rollin' around at the speed of sound! Got places to go, gotta follow my R-A-I-N-B-O-W! Can't stick around have to keep moving on, guess what lies ahead only one way to find OUT! Must keep on moving ahead! No time for guessing, follow my plan instead! Trusting in what you can't see. Take my lead I'll set you free! Follow me, set me free, trust me and we will escape from the city! We'll make it through from me to you! Follow me! Oh yeah! Danger is lurking around every turn, trust your feelings got to Live and Learn! I know with some what faith we'll make it through, got no other options only one thing to do-o-o-o-o-o! I don't care what lies ahead! No time for guessing follow my plan instead! Find that next stage, no matter what that may be. Take my lead I'll set you free! Follow me, set me free, trust me and we will escape from the city! I'll make it through! Follow me! Follow me! Set me free! Trust me and we'll escape from the city! I'll make it through prove it to you! Follow me! ...more

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.

Let's jump of a helicopter (dumb idea) let's escape from the city (why) because the song...(okay that excuse is fine)

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.

You opened your heart. But blood came out... Well this song is really good but I think it should've been SA2

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.

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

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.

God! This song seriously pumps you up and feels that you can do anything, which is quite inspirational. Pne of the true masterpieces of the sonic franachise.

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.

5 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

It's very close between Live and Learn and this, but I have to give the edge to this.

I think that this is the best song, as well as sonic unleashed is my favorite game

There is endless possibilities. That is basically what it means.

6 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.

This song has made it's way to a huge amount of sonic fan movies,even fan movies with more video game characters like GAS the ultimate crossover. His world is My song because it gives power to Solaris phase 2 final boss with the epic kind of a beat

This song has an epic mix of orchestra and electric while crush 40 does his amazing rap vocals, such an amazing song for a terrible game.

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.

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.

Awesome song here! It totally suits Shadow!

Nu metal in a sonic game, my life is complete.

8 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.

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

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

It really is an awesome song! It reflects so much of Silver's character... so much so that it pretty much tells his feelings on the whole thing in a five min song! Silver is awesome, and so is this song!

Fun fact- this song has the same basic tune as green hill zone.
I love this song! It is great and gives you the feel of sonic's most underatted character goes

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

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

Best Sonic Song. A perfect fusion of orchestrated beauty and hardocore guitars. The violins here go in, and that creates the best sound for my ears. Sucker for anything orchestral and rock really, so this just hits the sweetspot

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 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)

12 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

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.

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

Amazing song from my favourite game.

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!♪

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.

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.

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

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

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

This should be higher, this song is a classic.

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

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

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

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

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

One of my favorite songs ever!

A great music by Crush 40 and one of my faves :D

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

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

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

Love this song! Super catchy and fun!

My number 2 sonic songs

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

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*

This deserves top 10!
