    My first choice is definitely Green Hill from Sonic 1 Genesis. Maybe it's not the most epic tune in the series, but it is a classic and also probably the first video-game music I ever memorized.

    Deciding which should be 2nd is the hard part. Assuming that the choice has to be a Stage music (not including the final bosses that have the main theme) I'll have to choose Rooftop Run Day from Unleashed.

    Rooftop Day is a fun stage and hearing the music makes me wanna run fast and pop some balloons!

    Sonic 3: Miniboss Theme

    The drums and the sound clips are brilliant, they get me pumped and ready for the boss every time. Just the "Woo, Come On!" part at the start is enough to get me into the swing of things. A truly epic music piece, shame you can't listen to it in Sonic 3 & Knuckles

    Sonic 3: Hydrocity Zone Act 2

    Another amazing track from Sonic 3. After the slowed down tone of Act 1, this slightly faster and more energetic tune is definetly a step in the right direction and prepares you for the wall chase. I love the echo on the drums right at the start as well, a very nice effect.

    Sonic CD: Stardust Speedway (Present-JP)
    It really gets the energy flowing and fits in really well with the stage. When I first got to this stage, way back when I first got ahold of the game, I was fucking hyped when I got around to stardust speedway. The level design, music, and twitchy gameplay worked in perfect sync and kept me wanting more.

    Sonic 2: Emerald Hill Zone
    It may be the nostalgia talking, but this song always gets me thinking about Sonic and Tails teamin' up to kick eggman's butt, and that definately chimes back to a time where video games weren't riddled with drama. I dunno, it's pretty catchy, and definately perks the senses along with the colorful atmosphere of the level itself.

    <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyoMQg3d5cs" target="_blank">Sonic 3 & Sonic and Knuckles Final Boss:</a> This song just felt so epic. It emphasised the fact that the fate of the world was in Sonic's/Tails'/Knuckles' hand. Can't forget the great boss battles that went with this song too!

    <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPC8W672mXc" target="_blank">Sonic Boom:</a> Along with the clip that played in sync, this track, to me, is what defined Sonic as cool hero with attitude. I can even remember singing this to my class in second year of primary school. Luckily, no one recorded it >.>

    Hm...


    Ocean Palace, Sonic Heroes. Manages to conjure up the same upbeat feelings I'd have waking up Saturday mornings around 1996 and playing Sonic CD or Sonic 3D, both of which had nice music. Only song to really do it in the modern games except Cool Edge day, which feels oddly empty.

    Panic Puppet, 3D Blast Saturn. I love chromaticism. The piano bit in Act 1 is also divine.

    Sonic 2 Regular Boss Music.
    The tune is forged in my brain.

    Sonic 2 Death Egg Zone.
    The crazy clown tune is epic and a shame it lasted only 1 corridor.

    Hmm.

    HMMMMMMMM.

    Well, Lava Reef Zone, Act 2 (Hidden Palace), and Sandopolis Zone, Act 2.

    Lava Reef 2 is mystical.. it gives that feeling that you're in a magic place. Allough it was used in Hidden Palace too, where it should be, Lava Reef 2 should have got a more upbeat song. Hidden Palace with this song just does it for me. Sandopolis 2 is a very heavy song, and heavy songs are my favourites. Just listen to the percussion and bass-line <3

    How can you possibly ask that?
    I guess I could just go with 2 of my current favorites, but picking 2 all-time favorites would take an act of God.

    One of my current favorites is actually a remix of the Sonic CD theme song, "You Can Do Anything (extended remix)" or something like that. If I remember correctly, someone here at Sonic Retro made it, right? Well incase remixes don't count, the original is awesome too.
    There are also 3 Sonic Unleashed daytime stage songs that are hard to pick from but I'm gonna go with "Dragon Road Daytime". (I think that's what it's called)

    Hydrocity and Flying Battery, second Acts. Both songs have a pretty wide musical range, and go with their respective Zones almost flawlessly.

    I also really enjoy the Project Chaos versions of both songs, Walk(ing?) on Water and Dead Batteries.

    Hydrocity Zone Act 1, tone 2's (in_vgm, don't know the actual name for it) bass sound is just sex.

    Star Light Zone, this song was my favorite growing up. It gives me those weird happy feelings that make you shiver and your eyes puff up. Kind of like near crying...
     
  17. Ice Cap Zone - It's just so catchy. The plinkity-plinkity synths are so pleasing to the ear. MJs "Who Is It" is a corker too.
    Hidden Palace Zone (Sonic 2) - Sounds so mystic. Very fitting for this zone. Unusual percussion. Nice combination. One of many tracks you strive to hear in full orchestral equivalence.
