History

“Reach For the Stars” is the main vocal theme for Sonic Colors. Performed by Jean Paul Makhlouf from Cash Cash, a band from Roseland, New Jersey. The lyrics were written by Zachary Jacob Lawrence, the winner of a contest. The words were slightly modified a bit for in-game use. The song’s lyrics are a reference to the story that takes place in the game. Let’s take a look at a few connections, shall we?

 

 

Take off, at the speed of sound”

 

This can translate to Sonic the Hedgehog running at blazing speed, obviously haha.

 

“Not looking back, Not giving up”

 

This can be a reference to Sonic’s spirit of never giving, living by his own rules regardless of the past.

 

“Just take my hand we’re gonna reach for the stars tonight”

 

A possible reference to joining Sonic on his journey into infinite possibilities ahead of you.
