    1

    H.W.A. (2) Featuring Sonic The Hedgehog - Supersonic

    Promotional dance tune by H.W.A. (which stands, of course, for "Hedgehog With Attitude").

    Various - Super Sonic Präsentiert: The Better One Wins

    This is a compilation of popular songs "presented by Sonic". It also includes Super Sonic Dance Attack (see above).

    4

    Unknown Artist - Toutes Les Musiques De L'Émission Micro Kid's

    From what I can tell, this is a soundtrack to a French children's show called Micro Kid's, which contains, among other things, orchestrated versions of songs from video games, including Sonic The Hedgehog.

  5. Unknown Artist - Game Mix

  7. Right Said Fred - Wonderman

    7

    Right Said Fred - Wonderman

    Single for "Wonderman" by Right Said Fred. As part of some weird deal with SEGA, the single version of the song features Sonic-related lyrics and the video was essentially a 3-minute long advertisement for Sonic The Hedgehog 3.

  8. Akinori Minami - Sonic & Knuckles / Sonic The Hedgehog 3

    8

    Akinori Minami - Sonic & Knuckles / Sonic The Hedgehog 3

    Selections from the Sonic & Knuckles soundtrack (but none from Sonic The Hedgehog 3, despite the title) recomposed with "real" instruments.

  9. Spencer Nilsen - Sonic CD

    9

    Spencer Nilsen - Sonic CD

    This is the disc of Sonic CD for the Sega CD (known as the Mega-CD outside of the US). Most (if not all) of the Sega CD game discs can be played like a music CD in a CD player. This is the US version. The US and JP/EU versions of the game have very different soundtracks. A major argument over which soundtrack is better rages on to this day.

  10. Naofumi Hataya, Masafumi Ogata - Sonic CD

    10

    Naofumi Hataya, Masafumi Ogata - Sonic CD

    This is the disc of Sonic CD for the Sega Mega-CD (known as the CD in the US). This is the European version, which contains the JP/EU version of the soundtrack (see above).

  11. Spencer Nilsen / Naofumi Hataya - Sonic CD

    11

    Spencer Nilsen / Naofumi Hataya - Sonic CD

    This is the disc of Sonic CD for the PC, which can be played like a music CD in a CD player. Strangely enough, the PC version uses all of the US soundtrack except for the "Past" level music, which comes from the JP/EU soundtrack.

  12. Richard Jacques - Sonic 3D - Flickies Island

    12

    Richard Jacques - Sonic 3D - Flickies Island

    This is the disc of Sonic 3D for the Sega Saturn. Most (if not all) of the Saturn game discs can be played like a music CD in a CD player.

  13. Various - Block - Rocking Beats

    13

    Various - Block - Rocking Beats

    Compilation of music from Sega Saturn games, including Sonic 3D.

  14. Various - Club Saturn

    14

    Various - Club Saturn

    Compilation of remixes of music from various Sega Saturn games, including Sonic 3D.

  15. Sonic (2) - They Call Me Sonic

    15

    Sonic (2) - They Call Me Sonic

    Single for the now-infamous (thanks to the Internet) trance anthem "They Call Me Sonic".

    They call me Sonic, 'cuz I am faster than sound, I keep on jumpin' around...

  16. Sonic (2) - King Of The Ring

    16

    Sonic (2) - King Of The Ring

    Single to "King Of The Ring". For all intensive purposes, it's the exact same as "They Call Me Sonic" except with slightly-changed notes and different vocals. It also includes a version of "They Call Me Sonic" sung in German.

    I'm the King Of The Ring, come here and play with me...

  17. Sonic (2) - The Hedgehog

    17

    Sonic (2) - The Hedgehog

    This is the full album from the people that brought you "They Call Me Sonic", et al.
    Since the name of the label that released it is Arcade, this album is commonly believed to be related to SegaSonic The Hedgehog, a Sonic game released in arcades. There is absolutely no connection whatsoever between the two, but it seems too late to convince the Internet otherwise.

  18. Various - Happy Rave 4 (Special German Edition)

    18

    Various - Happy Rave 4 (Special German Edition)

    A compilation which contains "They Call Me Sonic" (see above).

  19. Richard Jacques - Sonic R

    19

    Richard Jacques - Sonic R

    The soundtrack to Sonic R. This is probably the most controversial Sonic soundtrack to date. Its 90's-dancepop cheeriness makes this a favorite to some, and a bane-of-existence to others.

  20. Rechard Jacques* Feat. Dee Dee Brave - Work It Out From "Sonic R"

    20

    Rechard Jacques* Feat. Dee Dee Brave - Work It Out From "Sonic R"

    Remixes of "Work It Out", a song which originally appeared on the Sonic R soundtrack. This version has a different vocalist than the Sonic R one.

  21. Various - Sonic Adventure Remix

    21

    Various - Sonic Adventure Remix

    An album containing remixes (most are actually covers) of songs from Sonic Adventure by industrial artists. This album is considered by some to be one of the worst Sonic-based music releases ever, due to the sloppy, rushed manner in which it was made (something SEGA seems to pride itself in nowadays, unfortunately).

  22. Sonic Underground (2) - The Greatest Hits

    22

    Sonic Underground (2) - The Greatest Hits

    Soundtrack to the Sonic Underground cartoon.

  23. Sonic Underground (2) - The Greatest Hits Volume 2

    23

    Sonic Underground (2) - The Greatest Hits Volume 2

    Another soundtrack to the Sonic Underground cartoon.

  24. Unknown Artist - Sonic Adventure 2 Official Soundtrack

    24

    Unknown Artist - Sonic Adventure 2 Official Soundtrack

    US version of the soundtrack to Sonic Adventure 2. While many Japan versions of game soundtracks are multiple discs that cover nearly all of the games' music, US versions are almost always one-disc releases that just cover the "most important" tracks.

  25. Various - The Cornerstone Player 043

    25

    Various - The Cornerstone Player 043

    Promotional CD/DVD set which includes a playable demo of Sonic Heroes, among other games.
