Its hard to pick what is the best Sonic song as there are so many good ones. But personal faves are Live and Learn, What I'm Made of, His World (Solaris version), Escape from the City, Chemical Plant Zone. There are more but it'll make the list too big.

As for worst, that is also hard to pick as I can't really recall that many bad songs (unless you count everything in Sonic and the Dark Brotherhood). But off the top of my head my least favourite song may have to be the one that plays in the Sonic Rush final boss fight, Back in Black was it?

If we were talking about game soundtracks I'd have to pick the entirety of Sonic 3 & Knuckles - I could listen to that game soundtrack on loop all day long.

I can't say there's any songs I really hate. There are some that are kinda bleh like "His Sweetest Honey" but I like pretty much all the main songs. Well except "Sonic Heroes" but that's just because it's kinda generic.

If I had to mention anything as worst for me, it has to be anything and everything from Chronicles.

Seriously, the DS is/was more capable of better sound and music quality than whatever that game had.

W...What? That doesn't even exist. You mean "My Sweet Passion"? Cause that's a very...suggestive...song title.

This is one of the many reasons why Chronicles should have spent several more months in development, instead of releasing the half-baked beta version we ended up getting.

As far as vocal songs go, my favorites are It Doesn't Matter (SA1) and Fly in the Freedom. Despite them having a lot of iffy lyrics (the second verse and beyond of Believe in Myself (SA2) ruins that song for me :( ) the Adventure series's theme songs feel really raw and authentic to me, compared to themes from more recent games.

My favorite BGM from a few of my favorite Sonic games:

Sonic 1 - Scrap Brain Zone
Sonic 2 - Metropolis Zone
Sonic CD - Quartz Quadrant, Good Future
Sonic 3 - Hydrocity Zone, Act 2
Sonic R - Back In Time
Sonic the Fighters - Canyon Cruise
Sonic Adventure - Gamma's Theme
Sonic Adventure 2 - Death Chamber
Sonic Heroes - Mystic Mansion
Sonic Unleashed - Dragon Road, Day
Sonic Colors - Terminal Velocity

The Very Worst? Definitely We Can, from Sonic Heroes. Ugh...

My favorite Sonic soundtracks are Sonic Adventure, Sonic CD (both really, but JP is a little better), Sonic 06, and Sonic Unleashed.
I can't bring myself to pick a single vocal song as my favorite, but "Open Your Heart", "Endless Possibility", "His World" (every version), "Un-Gravitify", and the Secret Rings soundtrack are all up there.
Of course, the worst soundtrack is still Chronicles.
I absolutely hate "Almost Dead" from Shadow the Hedgehog, and most of the non-vocal songs in that game are pretty forgettable.

It's been at least a good five years since I last touched Chronicles, and I haven't really thought about it since I beat it back then. Maybe that's for the best. :(hearty laughter):

Red Mountain parts 1 and 2 from SA1 are amazing.

Well, we are talking avout @%^# Sonic the Hedgehog so obviously there are army of great songs. And while I join "Chosen One is underrated" fan club,my favorite song probably is "Open Your Heart". SADX was one of my first games, nostalgia has too much power over me :P

I honestly have some love for the bizarre, almost dirty sounding Spinball soundtrack that probably stems from nostalgia more than anything. Sure, it's genuinely awful on its own but mixed with the weird BWARP SPLOOF sound effects in the game, the crazy badniks and creepy Robotnik bosses, it creates an atmosphere that's unique from any other Sonic game. I'm not quite sure if it's a good atmosphere, but I always had fun with it.

To be fair, people have said the "tesla coil" music sounds much better when played on an actual Genesis rather than an emulator.
