VG Music: Sonic Star Light Zone

After Laybrinth Zone, the open air in Star Light zone are quite welcome. Star Light zone perfectly captures the sense of adventure found in the original Sonic.

The levels were longer, you weren't always fighting Robotnik... most of the time you're just running around.

Despite this, there is a sense of anticipation and tension in this song that drives the player to continue on and hints at future challenges.

Aaaaahhhh, it's the 60hz American version >_>

Seriously, type 'Starlight Zone Europe' in YouTube, and listen to it in 50hz. It's so much more chilled.

Some of the songs sound better in 60hz (Green Hill Zone, Spring Yard Zone) but some sound MUCH better in 50hz (Star Light Zone, Marble Zone).

Jus' sayin' :D

Love this track, it has always been one of my favorites, if not my all-time favorite, of the Sonic series. Fantastic tune, totally mellow and relaxing, yet bouncy and energetic at the same time.
