Day 2 - Opening Level Music

The second day requires us to choose music that is used in a game's opening level. For most of us, this means some kind of side-scroller, or at least a platformer of some type. I'd argue that the music used in the first map of most games would work out. Still, though, there's only one track that I would ever pick for this; it's too iconic to not.

Ah. Green Hill Zone. Can you imagine a better first level track? There are complexities in this that I never noticed until many, many years later. As good as the music is in most Sonic games, none of them quite capture the magic in their first level as Green Hill Zone. I'm not sure there's much else left to say, so I think I'll leave it here.
