Hey, what’s going on everybody? I just started classes this week, yowza! I’m taking time this week to do some of my own picks before we start requests back up, and I promise not to disappoint!

For your Monday, we have a nice classic tune, coming from the second Sonic game! The moment I heard this, I really fell in love with it when playing Sonic 2. Combined with going faster than the camera and all the little nooks and crannies you can race through, it really made the stage. The bass work is really fantastic, a huge driving force along with the percussion. I love the melody, the staccato parts and the long lines provide some nice contrast. There’s a bunch of comping going on throughout as well, taking from the opening riff, tying everything together. And then that huge crescendo before the turnaround, hitting that high not and really bending on it, so cool! I can see a fresh combo doing this, with a sax in the lead and really ripping through those lines. I like to practice along to this song, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun! Just watch out for all the purple water.
