Mash-Up Monday: Toot Toot Green Hills Warrior

Hey, TSSers! Long time no see!

To those who’ve been asking what happened to the mash-ups, well, my health plummeted, I got bedridden, this, that, a little bit o’this. Didn’t have a ton of energy to even write, but hey, kicked pneumonia square in the rear since then! It’s good to be back!

So, it’s Labour Day today! Cozy? Good. Relaxed? Great! Well rested? Awesome! Bored? Outstan–wait, wait, not outstanding! We can’t have that, not at a time like this! With that diagnosis, there is only one known cure… The return of Mash-Up Mondays, of course! And what better way to celebrate than to highlight a game with some of the cheesiest theme songs ever, like Sonic CD?

Now, it’s no mystery that You Can Do Anything, the Japanese main theme to the time-travelling SEGA CD escapades of the Blue Blur, and Green Hills of Sonic 2 8-bit fame share the same melody. This shouldn’t come across as much of a surprise, seeing that both tracks share the one and only Masafumi Ogata as the composer. Many have wondered of a possible combination of the two songs, and many others have attempted at mixing the two together, but there is one arrangement that I feel stands above the others!

Put together by Hyper-Shan of the SSMB, this particular mash-up not only combines the two aforementioned tracks, as it incorporates the similar sounding Mecha Green Hill from Sonic Chaos as well into a 5 minute masterpiece! So plug in those headphones and enjoy what many consider to be the definitive version of You Can Do Anything! Sing along, now!

Mash-Up Monday: Collision Chaos Light

Nice and relaxed? Headphones on? Then you’re good to go, for it’s Monday business as usual here at the Stadium – Mash-Up Monday!

KenJones3023 decided to combine the Japanese iteration of Collision Chaos Good Future, by Masafumi Ogata, with Lights by Ellie Goulding!

Kinda fitting… the lights of Collision Chaos only shone for Sonic once he was alone.

Special thanks to Hyper-Shan of the SSMB for the tip. If you want to submit a mash-up you’ve found or made yourself, feel free to send in what you’ve got over at vizardjeffhog@sonicstadium.org!
