Sonic The Hedgehog: The Sound Of Speed

The Sound of Speed invites you to cast the bitter, bitter memory of terrible Sonic games into the depths of your sub conscious, and enjoy 13 classic Sonic the Hedgehog tracks remixed by 15 different artists. The best part? It's all totally free.

"Sonic the Hedgehog. Possibly the first video game I ever played," says project Director Drew Wheeler. "To this day, I still enjoy speeding through the game once in a while, humming to the music all the while. Popular as it may be, its soundtrack is somewhat overlooked in the VGM arrangement world in comparison to the later Genesis installments. But no more!

"I couldn't be more proud of the amazing work everyone put into this album, and I hope you all enjoy it!"

    Nostalgia overload today. First the interview with Bret Hart and now the music of Sonic.

    If there's an article on Betrayal of Krondor tomorrow my goggles will explode with the sound of *squeeeee*

    This has really made my day. Been listening to the Sonic 2 soundtrack lately actually, would like to see a take on that too as I think it's the best Sonic score of the lot.

      They've already done one.

      A S3&K album too.

      Sonic & Knuckles is my personal favourite, but one of the great things about the Megadrive/Genesis Sonics is that their soundtracks were always top notch.

    Better grab this one before Sega send a cease and desist...

    OC Remix is a hotbed of awesome remixed video game music.

    Great to see you guys reporting on this!!! I've been listening it to the last 24 hours non-stop... it is indeed all kinds of awesome :D

    Sonic 1 & 2 on the Master System also have awesome music (8-bit at that), right up there with Alex Kidd in Shinobi World, Wonderboy 3 Dragons Trap and Wonderboy in Monster Land. Also if you love game music on any system, check this site:

      Select mp3 all and have fun. Also for Midi remixes of classic tunes, check:
