This week on Music Monday we’ll be heading back into the world of:
Sonic The Hedgehog
We’ll be taking a look at the history behind the Blue Blur’s theme:
As always, plug in your headphones(or speakers) and get ready to lay down some sick beats!
Of course, we can’t go on our own, that’s why the blue blur himself will join us
As soon as he remembers which area specifically I told him to meet us haha.
With that said, let’s dive right in!
As many of you may know, His World is the Theme for Sonic The Hedgehog in Sonic The Hedgehog 2006. It’s true many fans did not enjoy this game for many understandable reasons, but the music was really good in terms of themes. It was performed by Matty Lewis and Ali Tabatabaee, players from the punk band Zebrahead, a band that was established in 1996. The song is actually meant to portray an individual who looks at Sonic’s heroic fearlessness along with what it would be like to live like that.
“Go on and get yourself together, there’s no time to rest.
And if you put the time in, he’ll put you to the test.”
This is one of the lines from the song to show an example of the narration perspective meaning. Used several times in the entire game, there were many other versions with different lyrics as well.
Throughout the years, there have been many versions of this theme. Versions from Zebrahead, Crush 40, E3 Version.
Crush 40 was the band that created different lyrics for this song. Suprise ! they weren’t actually the ones to create the song, shocking haha, but they always make great covers!
Crush 40’s version
They also created instrumental themes like invincible, result screen, menu screen. As you can see there have been a lot of versions for this haha.
Zebrahead is my personal favorite version, feel free to tell me yours in the comments below! 😀
Even though the game itself wasn’t the best of Sonic titles, the blue blurs theme was no doubt one of his best! With so many versions out there, you’re bound to be able to pick a favorite! Keep in mind that there is a small use of language in the song if you’re picky on that, but nothing too major.
Thanks for reading! Hope you found/learned a bit more about being the history of the Blu Blur’s sick beats. Tune in next week to find out what world we dive into next time on Music Monday! 😀
