Miscellaneous

  • Though the majority of vocal themes for Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) were included, two were noticeably absent: the Japanese and English versions of SWEET SWEET SWEET -06 AKON MIX-. The Japanese version was included on the DREAMS COME TRUE single If It's Snow/Only Today. Both versions would not be available commercially on a Sonic-related album until 2011's Sonic the Hedgehog 1&2 Soundtrack, which also included the original versions from 1992.
