live and learn
my inner rock teen has that on lockdown
Live and Learn. I love how for a while it sort of became the unofficial Sonic theme song, and I'd like to hear it again in a new game.
IMO what i'm made of outclasses live n learn in every way possible
Knight of the Wind I think is the best one Crush 40's done. Live and Learn is the best out of those two though.

What I'm Made Of. No contest. Straight rock-out from start to finish.
Who I'm made all of the Wind...
I just listened to a whole bunch of Crush 40 songs in a row because of this thread. It had been a long time since I actually listened to them, and you know what? I forgot just how good they really are.
I'd glad they're back for Team Sonic Racing, but I hope they start making songs for mainline Sonic games again.

What I'm Made of... Live and Learn...
...honestly I can't pick.
WHAT! I'M! MADE! OF! NOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!!!!!
Open Your Heart is right up there as well. As a kid, nothing screamed so hard that Sonic was entering the modern age as that CG intro and guitars shredding up your TV speakers.
Yeah, I'd put Open Your Heart over Live and Learn too.
That intro to the Perfect Chaos fight still gives me chills.
I'm gonna go with "What I'm Made Of".
I think my order would be What I'm made of > Live and Learn > Open Your Heart, though they're all top tier sonic songs. I also like their cover of ungravitify, even if I prefer the original slightly more.
Honestly cheesy as some of them are, I kind of find myself appreciating the vocal songs in Sonic, because they are at least memorable and have character. It's kind of like Persona and how despite some of the songs being Engrishy nonsense they're still catchy and fun to listen too while adding some charm to the game.
My favorite 10 sonic vocal songs
Fly Into Freedom, City Escape, Let the Speed Mend It, It Doesn't Matter(original) and For True Story are probably my runners up. Oh and This Machine.
That said I wasn't too fond of Forces' vocal tracks too much. Mainly because I don't like the EDM direction a lot of the songs used.
UGH I can't believe the same guys that gave us the classic escape from the city gave us We Can. I think We Can is one of my most disliked sonic songs ever.

I actually think We Can is kind of adorably cheesy and I like it. Not as much as Team Chaotix's theme but still not bad.
We Can is probably the best song since Thriller...
"It Doesn't Matter" and "Escape From the City" are definitely better songs, but "We Can" falls straight into Narm Charm territory for me. I think I might like it more than "Sonic Heroes", which, while still an enjoyable song, borders on Word Salad Lyrics.
For me we can is TOO narmy to where it becomes just corny and cringey instead.
Though I suppose the cash cash remixes of super sonic racing and escape from the city are my actual least liked vocal songs.
We Can is the best thing since WW lll...
Or less extreme, the best thing since Bohemian Rhapsody...

We talkin' top ten vocals? All right.
10) Live Life
9) Throw It All Away
7) Unknown from M.E. (Adventure 2 version)
6) Never Turn Back
5) Wrapped in Black
4) Endless Possibilities
3) Open Your Heart
2) Knight of the Wind
1) What I'm Made OF
I find it criminal look a like was never put into any of the games.

...why would it be?
I'd make a list but I love all of the vocal songs too much to actually make a list. I'm really bad at listing favorites anyway.
Seconding Fly In The Freedom being fantastic. I'm a big fan of Fertile Ground, and that style of soul jazz was clearly an inspiration for that and all of Rouge's music in general.
Sonic's always had a lot of jazz, soul, funk and disco references in its music in general, though it's mostly rock these days (not that there's anything wrong with that).
