SONG OF THE WEEK: Sonic The Hedgehog 2 – Mystic Cave Zone


Song of the Week is a weekly feature where we show off the best of video game music. From the sweeping orchestra music of Nobuo Uematsu to the more somber tunes of Yoko Shimomura, prepare to have your ears delighted every week.

This week’s Song of the Week is a tad late, but it’s better to be late than never!

As last weekend saw the 25th anniversary celebration event for Sonic the Hedgehog, I thought why not show off some music from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise?

Todays song is from Mystic Cave Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The piece is spooky, in a charming way, and perfectly fits the level’s Halloween-style visuals. For some reason, this level is really ingrained into my mind. I think, when I played through it initially, I must have found it quite hard. It’s either that or the music and visuals of the level are so superb, that I’ve found it impossible to forget.

Either way, I hope you enjoy and Happy 25th Anniversary to Sonic the Hedgehog!
