8 Years (& a day) without Michael Jackson, 26 Years (& 2 days) of Sonic The Hedgehog.
It's been too long since my last MJ & Sonic mashup. I guess this year I'm mostly focused on my Linkin Park/Shadow mashup album (& still am), but tonight, the limelight is on the King Of Pop & the Blue Blur together as my tradition.
I wanted to upload this video here on the 25th, but I didn't get time to upload to both YouTube & Vidme on the same night (too much activity would lag my PC).
[MP3 Coming Soon]
'Man In The Mirror' is a wonderful song, a song about coming trying to change oneself & make the world a better place - it merges so well with Pastiche's 'Sonic Boom' (from the US Sonic CD), a theme about saving a planet that's under Robotnik's grips. Much like my last year's tribute, I included both the instrumental & main ending version of Sonic Boom, however I decided to put the whole vocal track in as Man In The Mirror's acapella (the gospel parts) stretch on quite long. It also backs up Pastiche's vocals well, especially the timings.
The video may not be as flashy as my last annual tribute, but I still feel the slow transitions just matches both songs rather well. All in all, this is a tribute to both my favourite solo artist & a gaming icon.
Rest In Peace, Michael; Keep on Moonwalking the Heavens!
Happy Birthday, Sonic; Don't ever stop Running!
