Sonic the Hedgehog 1&2 Soundtrack (ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ 1&2 サウンドトラック Sonikku za Hejjihoggu 1&2 Saundotorakku?) is the official soundtrack album for original Sonic the Hedgehog and its sequel, Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Both games' soundtracks were composed by Masato Nakamura, the bassist of the band Dreams Come True. The album was released only in Japan on 19 October 2011, and in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Sonic the Hedgehog series.

The album contains all original tracks from both games at the first disc, while the second disc contains Nakamura's demo recordings during the both games' development. The album booklet contains comments by one of Sonic's creators, Yuji Naka, an interview of Masato Nakamura, and several artworks from the original Sonic the Hedgehog's development.

Disc 3

The third disc contains an original track by Dreams Come True, titled "Sweet Sweet Sweet", which is sung by Miwa Yoshida. This song was used as the ending theme for Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The disc also contains an English-language version of the song along with two remixes from 2006 by Akon, which were used in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).

  • Because all tracks at the album are only composed by Masato Nakamura, small music jingles of Drowning and Chaos Emerald aren't included at the album, as they are assumed to be composed by Yukifumi Makino, the sound programmer of the first game. This can also explain why these jingles are used through the whole series.
  • The unused song would have been heard in Hidden Palace Zone, which was the last level scrapped shortly before development of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was completed. The theme can still be heard as "Track #10", as well as if the player hacks into the zone's remnants in the final game. Masa's Demo Version shows it would have had a slower tempo, and notably doesn't have a loop point.
