39th: Sonic the Hedgehog - Green Hill Zone
Composer: Masato Nakamura
Score: 71/100 (7.3), Sonic the Hedgehog (2/7)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1doxqp7lNY

Whoa what's this song!!! I've never heard it before!!! Just kidding, it's a song I actually knew of before this thing... but probably because everyone that has ever thought "video game" in their head knows it! (slight exaggeration... maybe.) It definitely has all the elements that you need to be an incredibly, incredibly memorable song, and its status as a "VGM classic" is nothing short of well deserved. Melody is an absolute ear worm, great movement to keep things new and spicy as it goes along, great sounds... just damn. Great piece of work, and one that I'll enjoy for time to come in the form of copious amounts of remixes and the like that come with this being the "main theme" for the series, so to speak. ...But also the original as well!

38th: Sonic Mania - Green Hill Zone Act 1
Composer: Tee Lopes
Score: 71/100 (7.3), Sonic Mania (14/28)

Oh wait the classic was made almost-the-same-but-actually-better huh. Very slightly gets the edge over the original version of the song because the FM sounds taken from the original aren't too drowned and muddied by reverb like some other songs are, (although they still kinda are) and the added stuff in there is pretty cool! It's kinda mostly background stuff but when you really pay attention they come out, and that's neat. But yeah it's a 2017 Green Hill Zone plain and simple, effective, good stuff.

Since I played Sonic 2 a lot more as a kid than Sonic 1, GHZ doesn't really have that "Sonic main theme" feel to me. I guess it'd be Emerald Hill Zone if anything. But it's still a really memorable and lovable track.

37th: Sonic the Hedgehog 3 - Azure Lake Zone
Composer: Tatsuyuki Maeda, Sachio Ogawa, Masanori Hikichi
Score: 71/100 (7.3), Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (7/17)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgbPjmA7GhQ

What an energetic song!! Super bouncy and fun without being too overly sugary happy, which somehow feels like a hard thing to do for some songs. But this one nails the feel perfectly. It actually reminds me a lot of Green Hill Zone in that regard, as well as the very distinct, different sections that it has, and a very catchy main melody. Just a really solid song overall!

36th: Sonic Mania - Tabloid Jargon - Press Garden Zone Act 1
Composer: Tee Lopes
Score: 71/100 (7.3), Sonic Mania (13/28)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MndM7CKbq4

WHAT the WHAT how is this song so absolute(ly) chill (meg aman 10 heh) while also being very upbeat and driving and MECHANICAL WHIRRRRS and also I swear I listened to this for like forever and felt like it was a pretty long song and then it's literally a less-than-1-minute loop??? So like yeah you know a song is accomplished when you can fake getting more length out of it and get away with it. Very, very cool song, and one that I could see growing on me a lot. I already feel like I underrated it a bit!! We'll see how my opinion of it changes after I play the game ohhohohoho

35th: Sonic Mania - Oil Ocean Zone Act 2
Composer: Tee Lopes
Score: 71/100 (7.3), Sonic Mania (12/28)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yn1cxLMt5nE

Oh sorry I think I'm in the wrong topic actually, I meant to rate a Sonic song not a Shantae song... well, apparently they're the same thing in this one! REALLY love the electronic backing in this one, it adds a really, really cool flair to the song that makes it so much fun to listen to honestly. It's kind of crazy to listen up from the original to Mania Act 1 to this remix and think about just how much I think it improves as it goes along. Makes me wanna get up and belly dance... not that anyone really wants to think about that probably. But seriously, what a good Shantae song!!

34th: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Mystic Cave Zone (2P)
Composer: Masato Nakamura
Score: 71/100 (7.3), Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (3/14)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxPZqsc_uzA

BRUH THIS BASS THOUGH WHAT??? I absolutely love it and I'm really glad it stays for literally the entire song because it does a really good job of driving all these different melodies that come in and out and different snippits on different instruments all over the place. It's very engaging to listen to and has a lot of really cool harmonies to me as well, and it's really energetic and WOW just really fun!! How'd this get put as a 2P song instead of get used for a main zone?! Oh... wait......

33rd: Sonic Mania - Skyway Octane - Mirage Saloon Zone Act 1 ST Mix
Composer: Tee Lopes
Score: 71/100 (7.3), Sonic Mania (11/28)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jc2jgJiBT6c

Very cool, unique sounds in this one! It's like a shmup mixed with a western racing game, but made for a platformer, and has that kinda old time-y feel strewn throughout in things like the recurring flute motif thing, and the guitar. Juxtaposed with the electronic drums and synths in the backing which are all doing really cool ostinatos makes this really fun to listen to and pick apart as it happens. The parts where the progression gradually raises chromatically is REALLY REALLY COOL like we're soaring now up to the rockin' skies!! Also hi Sky Chase I know I kinda blasted you but it's cool to hear that little homage in there!!! Really fun to listen to and conceptually impressive so yeah it's gonna get high marks from me.

32nd: Sonic CD (USA) - Stardust Speedway "B" mix
Composer: Spencer Nilsen, David Young
Score: 72/100 (7.3), Sonic CD (USA) (1/21)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUG9lWhD0Ew

OKAY so hear me out I know I've blasted this game's guitar use before but THIS is the kind of electric guitar that makes me go WHOOOOOOA the grunginess of it as opposed to "LISTEN TO ME WAIL AND SOUND ""COOL"" WWAAWAWAWAA" that happens in a lot of the other songs, I really like what the song does. The main synth in the intro that keeps repeating and pans back and forth and gets filtered in and out is really f***ing cool too like THIS SONG IS JUST SO COOL. Staaaaarduuuuuuuuuust it has the big slappy snare hits and claps that I go crazy for too what the heck this song is like the essence of what I actually like in rock stuff so good for you song, thank you for showing me the light of the USA Sonic CD Soundtrack!! Very good song!

The time has arrived once again, and this time we say farewell to our first full-sized soundtrack... Sonic CD (USA). This one was probably the soundtrack I heard a lot of hype over from a number of people I know, so I feel kinda bad that what seemed to be quite a number of people's favorite soundtrack is the first big boy to head out. But regardless, I still really enjoyed the soundtrack overall! A lot of its under-performance came from me just personally not caring for a number of songs, but not necessarily finding them bad at all, so while it leaves the group early it certainly isn't gone without leaving a mark on my mind overall!!

31st: Sonic the Hedgehog 3 - Hydrocity Zone Act 2
Composer: Masayuki Nagao
Score: 72/100 (7.3), Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (6/17)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNYL4w-qxcE

Bouncy fun time in underwater drowning hell world yaay!! The intro really starts off setting the overall light-hearted mood, but it's when 0:22 happens that the song really kicks into gear for me. The melody from here on out to loop is just SOOOO damn catchy like WHat? Nagao's take on the jazzy and suave Act 1 and turning it into the high-energy banger is just... incredible, honestly. It's definitely the same composition at heart, but he just ran with it and turned it into this song that just makes me wanna dance, like I swear it's physically impossible to not bop to it at least a little while listening to it. Infectious to the third degree, and pretty damn deserving of the hype that it gets.

30th: Sonic CD (JPN/PAL) - Tidal Tempest "B" mix
Composer: Masafumi Ogata
Score: 73/100 (7.4), Sonic CD (JPN/PAL) (8/28)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNS1bTtTOVQ

God I just f***in LOOOOVE the ultra electric feel of the JP/EU Bad Future songs, like seriously taking "zone environment but if we put flashing neon dystopian lights on everything even" and embedding that thought process into a song is absolutely nutty and they nail it Every. Single. God Damn. Time. This one's pretty simple and doesn't really have a main melody like... ever, but it gets away with that by just hammering you with this image with every single sound that it puts forth and like AAAAAAA I am stuck in Blade Runner Cave Drowning Help! Incredibly successful in that regard and fun to listen to just to keep imagining the background to this song like I have never looked at "Tidal Tempest Bad Future What It Looks Like" Ever and I bet I could look it up and know exactly what it looks like.... Okay so there's not really lights from what I can see but its definitely rusty dystopian cool stuff great atmosphere good song!!!
