When I first heard the “Hedgehog Day” jingle, I knew right away that it was going to be the title theme into “Project Needlemouse.” I also knew right away that something about it was off. It tried to be a catchy title theme, but it just didn’t sound right. There was an aesthetic to it that was off-putting.
Tweaker, Sonic Retro admin and author of the Sonic Megamix ROM hack, agreed. Him and I were up pretty early this morning after some badass sleep. I decided to voice our opinions of the game in the “What’s In A Name” article (which had been flying around the #retro chat room since the announcement), while he decided to make the “Sonic 4” theme worthy of its title.
So, what happens when you combine the “Sonic 4” theme with the Japanese Sonic CD theme? Something that gets the melody stuck in my head, a key aspect that the official theme could not do. He let me put it on TSS to share with you guys.
