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

Passionate and fierce lyrics. I think they perfectly describe Shadow and Sonic. Sonic: "You need to live in order to have your best life" Shadow: "you need to learn to get it right." The two are a perfect duo, and this song is a total masterpiece. I consider it one of the best next to Dream of an Absolution and I Am All of Me.

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.

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.

Shadow:I win again!
Sonic:I was in it 2, shadow
Shadow:*looks at silver with a sorry smile*you're just not good enough
Silver:that's why I almost killed sonic twice but he needed a girl and a anti hero to save him?
Sonic and shadow:...

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

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.

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

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

I had just finished watching a playthrough of sonic unleashed. I start the playthrough of this and I'm amazed. the upbeat tempo and futuristic melody was such a comparison to the slow, smooth vibe of the sonic unleashed songs. such a great song that get's stuck in your head.

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.

Oohh yeah. This song is awesome. It's so catchy and it's kinda inspirational when I think about it.
I love this song way too much.

4 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.

5 His World (Crush 40) - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

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.

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

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

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

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

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

A high-tech, high-emotion beat, with such sad vibes that you can get goosebumps. If you close your eyes while listening to this, you can almost picture the dark world in which Silver fights to make better. The whole aspect of the song is so strong and passionate that it's almost impossible not to love. Open Your Heart and Reach for the Stars are both good, too, but I feel like this is better.

This is the ABSOLUTE best. The lyrics are full of passion, sadness, and dreams. The song is a song of past, present, future, and a broken world. It tells a story--Silver's story! It gives off the best vibe ever!

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

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!

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

This song some sort of underlying gritty, fierce might that is more than fit for a knight.
It's fairly unlike anything Crush 40's ever done for Sonic, and it's truly an epic.

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!

9 I Am...All of Me - Shadow the Hedgehog I Am...All of Me - Shadow the Hedgehog Cover Art

Dark lyrics and strong emotion. Shadow the Hedgehog is a mystery of a character and this fits him perfectly. "Step into my mystery...hold on for dear life." OMG, it's probably one of my favorite songs ever.

This is literally my second favorite song ever! I love how dark and depressing it is. What? I just like that sort of stuff! But this is my favorite Sonic song as well!

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.

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

Well, In my opinion, WIMO is chronologically repetitive considering the previous Adventure titles, but what's not to love?

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

The Contenders
11 His World (Zebrahead) - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

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

12 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...

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.

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.

14 Infinite - Sonic Forces Infinite - Sonic Forces Cover Art

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.

This song is AWESOME! I am listening to it way too much at the moment...

15 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.

What a way to start a game! It's fresh, iconic, and powerful. It makes you want to play the game.

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

16 Team Chaotix - Sonic Heroes Team Chaotix - Sonic Heroes Cover Art

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

17 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!

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 This Machine - Sonic Heroes This Machine - Sonic Heroes Cover Art
20 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!

21 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

22 Lights, Camera, Action - Sonic Mania Lights, Camera, Action - Sonic Mania Cover Art
23 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!

24 Friends - Hyper Potions
25 All Hail Shadow - Sonic 06 (Crush 40) All Hail Shadow - Sonic 06 (Crush 40) Cover Art

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.
