A Music Blog (#8: Gotta go fast)

So today I'll put up two youtube videos to two different songs because both of these are great songs from a great game.

The game? Sonic Adventure 2 (Battle). One of my favourite games ever (certainly miles Prower ahead of the likes of Shadow the Hedgehog or 2006, etc). Both of these are rock songs, but the game did have a lot of other genres in it too, such as jazz, techno and rap with lyrics so bad it made the songs strangely enjoyable and complete with Getting Crap Past the Radar. Looking at you there, Knuckles stages.

These two songs are by the likes of Crush 40 who have a history of making awesome songs for games. First one is City Escape!

Lyrics:
Spoiler:
Whoo!
Aw, yeah...

Rollin' around at the speed of sound
Got places to go, gotta follow my rainbow
Can't stick around, have to keep movin' on
Guess what lies ahead, only one way to find out

Must keep on movin' ahead
No time for guessin', follow my plan instead
Trustin' 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
I'll make it through
Follow me...

Follow me, set me free, trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through, prove it to you
Follow me...

Oh, yeah...

Danger is lurking around every turn
Trust your feelings, got to live and learn
I know with some luck that I'll make it through
Got no other options, only one thing to do

I don't care what lies ahead
No time for guessin', 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 will escape from the city
I'll make it through, prove it to you
Follow me...
Follow me...

I'll make it through...
Oh, yeah...


This was in the first Sonic level of the game and it was a darn fun one too; probably the most enjoyable in the game for myself.

And the next is Live and Learn.

Lyrics:
Spoiler:
Can you feel life movin' through your mind?
Ooh, looks like it came back for more -- Yeah
Can you feel time slippin' down your spine?
Ooh, you try and try to ignore -- Yeah

But you can hardly swallow
Your fears and pain
When you can't help but follow
It puts you right back where you came

Live and learn
Hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Live and learn
From the works of yesterday
Live and learn
If you beg or if you borrow
Live and learn
You may never find your way

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, yeah...

Can you feel life tangle you up inside?
Yeah, now you're face-down on the floor -- Oh

But you can't save your sorrow
You've paid in trade
When you can't help but follow
It puts you right back where you came

Live and learn
Hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Live and learn
From the works of yesterday
Live and learn
If you beg or if you borrow
Live and learn
You may never find your way

Whoa, whoa, whoa...
Oh, yeah!

[guitar solo]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...

There's a face searching far, so far and wide
There's a place where you dreamed you'd never find
Hold on to what if...
Hold on to what if...

Live and learn
Hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Live and learn
From the works of yesterday
Live and learn
If you beg or if you borrow
Live and learn
You may never find your way

Live and learn
Hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Live and learn
From the works of yesterday
Live and learn
If you beg or if you borrow
Live and learn
You may never find your way

Live and learn...
Live and learn...


This song is one of the last people hear in the game as it plays for the final final boss. Fun! Naturally this makes for an awesome battle. Sadly this song made it into Brawl but not intact; the part after the second verse is cut off for whatever reason, which just plain sucks. >_<

    These are definitely my favourite songs that you've posted so far! I remember you've shown me the first one before, and perhaps the second too though I didn't recognise it. But both are awesome either way :D

    This is one time where we'll have to agree to disagree. I'm morally opposed to Sonic music with vocals. =P
