Ok, ok, I’m well aware that just about every Sonic fan has probably come across this song on the internets. But if there’s even a single Sega Addict out there who hasn’t felt the sad, aching truth about recent Sonic releases transformed into a catchy tune and thus made much easier to swallow, I want to make sure they get the opportunity.
With “Sonic Doesn’t Need a Story”, gamer and all-around great musician Alex Day has articulated and vocalized several of the frustrations that many, if not all, retro Sonic lovers have been grappling with for the last decade. Just about every point is hit, right down to Olympic games and…*shudders*… Hover skates.
Now, I’m pretty sure this song was written and recorded before Sonic 4’s announcement and all the hullaballoo that followed, so hopefully we’ll get a gleeful sequel once 4 (or heck, Colors!) pulls us out of this Sonic Slum. Give it a listen. While you’re at it, check out Day’s website. Great stuff.
