So the Sonic reboot might not be happening?

Music Monday #35 - “Believe in Myself” from Sonic Adventure 1

It’s funny.  I was going to talk about this theme yesterday, and I had this theme planned out for a while but…

First of all, I didn’t realize it, but Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 came out today.

Second of all, I had a funny conversation with my 6-year-old niece relating to this song….sorta.

So I was talking to my niece, and she told me, “Hey…do you want to know what your theme song is?”  I’m already scratching my head in confusion, but a part of me was hoping she’d tell me a pretty good song.

She immediately start humming the theme to the menu screen of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.

No.  I wasn’t mad at her.  She loves that game purely because she adores Storm, C. Viper, and Tron.  I’ve been trying to get her into other games.

"While I do like that song, I promise you, that’s not my theme song."

"Then what is it?"

This song immediately came to mind without hesitation.

As I’ve said before, I’m not the biggest fan of Sonic Adventure 1’s gameplay, but I love it’s story and music.  Especially for Tails….because…..

Confession Time: Tails is my favorite video game character of all time.  No really, of all time.  I like him more than Morrigan, Cammy, or Stryker.  And it’s not anything like….the extremely weird Tails fans who find him attactive, but much more of the fact that he was a major symbol of my childhood.

When I played Sonic 2, my sister was Sonic and I was Tails.  Tails was my first video game character.  And as I grew up, I always found myself relating to Tails in the different stories he was in.  I was always the person who looked up to people, but never felt he could keep up with them.

So yeah.  I adore this theme, I feel it connects with me more than any other, and I’m a Tails fan.

I hate the Sonic Adventure 2 version of this song, though.
