Speed Me Up (From “Sonic the Hedgehog”) - Single Tracklist:
I love it! This song talks about Sonic! And, I am a huge fan of Sonic! I can’t get enough of it! I play it and never get bored, good job making the movie and the songs! From SonicFan_#1
I’m not even a fan of rap and I can’t get enough of this song. It just screams The Blue Blur. The movie was fantastic and I immediately downloaded this and the film score. It’s been on repeat ever since! Sonic is alive and well! Gotta go fast!!!
I. loved. the. Sonic. movie. and. this. was. my. favorite. song. at. the. end. credits. the. beginning. of. the. Sonic. movie. was. so. touching. Spoiler. Alert. if. you. haven’t seen. the. Sonic. movie. don’t. read this. so. at. the. beginning. Sonic. was. a. baby. hedgehog. and. he. was. trying. to. get. back. home. at. the. time. then. Sonic. ran. into. a. hawk. and. the. hawk. threw. him. through. a. ring. portal. Sonic. was. lost. playing. by. himself. short. story. short. later. on. in. the. movie. he. meets. donut. lord. lord. of. the. donuts! and. so. donut. lord. helped. Sonic. return. home. but. only. running. into. eggman. the. story. made. me. want. to. be. just. like. Sonic. I’m. a. edge. lord. like. Shadow. after. all. I. can. beat. Sonic. in. a. race. any day.
I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked the song upon first listen. Normally, the artists featured on here are ones I wouldn't normally listen to, but everyone featured here does a good job with the track. The rhythm and beat are truly what do it for me, however. This song fits well into the Sonic the Hedgehog legacy. It is a feel-good, get-hype track perfect for a road trip, for the gym or for dancing around to at home.
I get that rap resonates with the kiddos, but none of this feels like sonic to me. It’s not fast, the best doesn’t remind me of sonic, and the lyrics don’t represent him as a character. He’s more than a guy that runs fast.
