Sonic 3 - Hydrocity Act 2

I really liked the music in Sonic 3, not least because it happened to be some of the funkiest FM going at the time, but because Acts 1 and 2 featured music that was based around a leitmotif and as such added some nice variety between zones. In particular Act 2 of Hydrocity has some excellent backing lines and funky jams and is one of several great tracks on the soundtrack.

Of course, we now know that Michael Jackson also had some input in the soundtrack as well, only he never received recognition for this as Sega wanted to be as far away from Jackson and one of his many court cases involving alleged child molesting. Such a shame as this collaboration could have lead to something even more fruitful.
