The Sonic 3 credits music has always been a favorite of mine, so when I had the chance to remix it, I seized the opportunity and created this epic/soaring progressive trance mix, doing my best to include lots of creative twists and ideas. (I also threw in, a la jazzy-Rexy style, the melodies from the opening themes from Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles, as well as the beginning melody from the Sonic & Knuckles ending theme.) It's been 4.5 years since my first serious attempt at progressive trance: kingtiger.bandcamp.com/album/everything-is-glowing-sonic-knuckles
, and judging from how well this remix turned out, I'd say I've grown quite a bit :)
Like I said above, the S3 credits theme is one of my favorites, primarily because of how it makes me feel: accomplished, excited, hopeful, looking forward to what's next, etc. A very "I did it!" feeling, if you will, like you've made it through a very difficult ordeal. I've been dealing with many, many hardships in my life lately, so this source is even more meaningful to me now, and this is hopefully represented in the celebratory, joyous tone I attempted to create; that's also why I chose the title I did.
Hope you enjoy :)
