"Sonic Boom" is a track created especially for the North American release of Sonic the Hedgehog CD. There are two versions of the song, the first used during the opening FMV (in place of the original Japanese and European soundtrack's "Sonic - You Can Do Anything"), and a slower extended version used during the endings (in place of the original Japanese and European soundtrack's "Cosmic Eternity - Believe in Yourself"). This extended version is also featured in the album Sega Power Cuts 1. There is also a Crush 40 vs. Cash Cash remix of the track found on the 20th Anniversary Sonic CD Soundtrack along with the original version by Pastiche.

The opening version was also included in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as one of the songs that plays in the Green Hill Zone and Windy Hill Zone stages, albeit slighty edited to loop back to the start.

Lyrics

Opening version

If you're strong, you can fly
You can reach the other side
Of the rainbow
It's alright - take a chance
'Cause there is no circumstance
That you can't handle
(When you use your mind)

Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom
Trouble keeps you runnin' faster
Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom
Save the planet from disaster

From the dark to the light
It's a supersonic flight
Gotta keep it going

Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom
Trouble keeps you runnin' faster
Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom
Save the planet from disaster
Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom
Spinnin' through a world in motion
Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom - Sonic Boom

Ending version

If you're strong, you can fly
You can reach the other side
Of the rainbow
It's alright, take a chance
'Cause there is no circumstance
That you can't handle
(When you use your mind)

Mr. Bad's got it good
But this ain't his neighborhood
He's takin' over... no, no
Time is now, he can't hide
Find the power deep inside
And make it happen

Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Trouble keeps you running faster
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Save the planet from disaster
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Spinning through a world in motion
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Take it all the way!

Make your move, break it out
That's what life is all about
It's your adventure
Through the dark, to the light
It's a supersonic flight
Gotta keep it going

Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Trouble keeps you running faster
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Save the planet from disaster
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Spinning through a world in motion
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Take it all the way!

Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom...
