Sound of Play: 110 – The Sonic the Hedgehog special pt.1

Here’s a Sound of Play special dedicated to the music of the Sonic the Hedgehog games

In this special 110th edition of Sound of Play, we bring some wonderful tracks from Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog series. Join us in the first part of our exploration of the speedy hedgehog’s musical history, as we listen to Sonic’s earliest jams, the collaboration with Michael Jackson, the divide between different versions of the games, and the rise of cheesy rock anthems. Due to the sheer number of games in the series, we’ve divided this special into two parts. Join us again for part two of the Sonic the Hedgehog special in Sound of Play 120!

This show’s presenters are Ryan Hamann (@InsrtCoins) and James Farley (@jcafarley) from The Computer Game Show.
