    Has anyone else noticed that some of the levels' japanese themes in Sonic CD have words in them?

    Ex: Stardust Speedway Zone: Present (0:00-0:04)
    "Egg's gonna kill you! He's gonna kill you! Egg's gonna kill you! Oh no! oh no!"

    and also...

    Metallic Madness Zone: Present (0:16-0:27) (I'm not completely sure what they were saying here, but this is as close as I can get by ear:)
    "Hey there kid, this one is for you! Can't outgun 'im 'cause he's coming for you! Gotta get through, or nobody will! 'Cause nobody'll know he's coming for you! Get yourself ready for the fight 'cause it's gonna be super! Yo, we're outta here..."

    I always thought it was "Get right there, Get right here. We're-right-here, right on the double. (Repeat) Get right there, Get right here. We're-right-here, right on the double" for Stardust Speedway Present.

    Always thought it was more like this:
    "Get outta here, this isn't for you! Can't outgun 'im 'cause he's coming for you! Gotta get through, you know the drill! Oh' you gotta know he's coming through! Get yourself, ready for the fight 'cause it's gonna be super! Yo, we're outta here...".

    It's as close to what I can make out as anyone else could.

    I always thought that was just scatting. Same with the Good Future of the song. Plus in Stardust Speedway Bad Future, the singers say Get Down at 00:28, and the Speed Shoes song, the word "Go" is repeated, and in the Collision Chaos Present theme, I hear "3,2,1 Kick It" at the beginning of the song.

    You know, that might be even closer to what I guessed!

    I figured the Stardust Speedway words were sampled like the boss music.

    I'm also interested in the ones used in Dr. Gigglyman from Sonic Remix.

    All I can understand is "Gotta get real cool, know the deal." and "Get yourself, ready for a fight."

    There are also lyrics in the NA version of the soundtrack. In one song, the word "stardust" is sung. (I think it was Stardust Speedway Bad Future, I'm more familiar with the Jap/Eur OST.) And there is even scatting in Tidal Tempest Zone.
     
  10. JP Quartz Quadrant Bad Future: "Look at this place, UG!"

    US Wacky Workbench Present: "Shifty...Shifty...Shifty...Shifty..."

    US Wacky Workbench Bad Future: "Heh, Heh, Come find me...."

    US Stardust Speedway Bad Future: "Star..dust...."

    More if I can think of them...

    Oh come on, in the US SSBF right after "stardust" is a very distorted "speedway-hey-yay-yay-yeah"

    I always heard "Dance for the King! He's your King! Dance for the King you'll get no trouble"

    I know the boss theme is something along the lines of "Work that sucka to death, c'mon now, work that sucka to death"; then later, "The war began; Earth trembled in fear; bold, brave and cold-hearted... Disco something something Little Planet hear him RAWK..." (REALLY fuzzy on that line) "The power he possesses is incredible... he doesn't stand a chance!"

    I always heard "Head right here, get it right here, head right here, your power stone!" or alternatively "Head right here, get it right here, head right here, you'll go plum loco" which is what you'd have to be to try and figure out these lyrics. :X

    And figured it was something about the time stones. I always wondered who they got to do all that talking throughout the game. xD

    Okay, here's the lyrics:

    I'm having a really hard time trying to fit some of those where they're supposed to go, but that's supposedly the real deal, so...

    I thought it was pretty much confirmed the piece was "Work that sucker to death!"

    :/

    I guess he didn't want the SEGA execs to know it really said "to death", or something...

    I think I can do a bit of correcting...
    I still think it's
    "Egg's gonna kill you
    He's gonna kill you
    Egg's gonna kill you
    Oh no! Oh no!",
    but only because they call Eggman "Egg" in "You Can Do Anything"
    Probably "Get yourself, Ready for a fight
    'Cause it's gonna be super!! YO! We outta here!"
    I know for sure that it's
    "Work that sucker to death, Come on now!"
    because that's the name of the song they sampled there.
    So "Work this" should also be "Work that".
    That last line is just scatting, so there's no need for a "(!?)"
    "Goin' home"
    Again more scatting, so it's probably "Shoo be doo boo, yeah!"
    Followed by, "In the end, who's on your side?"
    ---
    Then there's also "Extraordinary things can happen if you believe in yourself", and
    "When you feel tight, look at yourself",
    and finally, at the end of the song, they're actually repeating the chorus again, but with vocals only (a.k.a. The 10th Anniversary Edition).

    I hope this helps!
