Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 Soundtracks To Be Released On Vinyl Record

Sonic music aficionados, get excited! Record label Brave Wave have announced that they will be collaborating with SEGA in order to produce both the SONIC ADVENTURE and SONIC ADVENTURE 2 soundtracks in vinyl format.

The albums will each contain a selection of songs from both games, each coming complete with two 180 gram records (in either a special edition blue / white or blue / red for SA1 and SA2 respectively, or a standard black edition), and will include a booklet containing “a reflective interview with Jun Senoue and head of Sonic Team Takashi Iizuka” in addition to song lyrics and artwork (track listing below).

Mash-Up Monday: Come On! Shrek It Up!

Some folks understand how to make mash-ups. See, mash-ups are like… onions. And onions, like mash-ups have layers.

And no one knows this better than CamisadoRush.

The vocals of Smash Mouth’s infamous All Star, notoriously known for its heavy usage in Dreamworks’ Shrek movie series, gets layered over the instrumental version of Escape from the City from Sonic Adventure 2.

I know, I know, but… just give it a listen, just one, then it will all be ogre.

Mash-Up Monday: A Generation of Escape

Courtesy of KatamariParadox, this week’s Mash-Up Monday will feature a four-way mash of all known versions of City Escape’s “Escape from the City”: the original, the instrumental, the Classic, and the Modern!

Thankfully, it isn’t just all four sprawled across one another. Bits and pieces of each iteration of the track contribute to a complete piece!

See if you can spot the original Endless Mine in there.

It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta Freak Out on Friday!

Spin-jumping on enemies,
Boosting right through baddies,
Gotta make my mind;
Whose path should I take?

It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta Freak Out on Friday!
Everybody’s escapin’ to the weekend, weekend!
It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta Freak Out on Friday!
Everybody’s escapin’ to the weekend!

Take my lead, take my lead, yeah!
I’ll set you free, set you free, yeah!
Run, run, run, run,
We’re escapin’ from the city!

Oh god, I’m so sorry, I’m so so sorry!!!

My Little Mash-Up Monday: Music is Magic

Sorry readers, but with me around and this particular subject’s ever-growing popularity on the internet, this was bound to happen at some point! Whether you hate it, love it, or tolerate it, things have just gotten 20% cooler around here, because it is PONY TIME today on The Sonic Stadium!

This week’s Mash-Up Monday brings you a grand total of four mash-ups, all of which combining music under both Sonic the Hedgehog and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic franchises.

The first two mash-up the actual music from the show. Planet WinterWisp sees a lovely combination of Planet Wisp and Winter Wrap Up, while Escape from the Cutie sports the memorable City Escape theme alongside the delectable lyrics from Cupcakes.

Escape From the City Sung by a Choir

The concert this advertises has already come and gone, but the song itself is still definitely worth a listen!
