Walk on the Ceiling – Theme of Sonic the Hedgehog 4

As tribute to Takashi Iizuka’s hallowing vision of Sonic the Hedgehog 4, I’ve recrafted the beautiful lyrics of Reach for the Stars, and elevated them to new heights. Brand new, never explored, never walked-on heights, to create a theme song worthy of being called the theme of Sonic the Hedgehog 4. It is truly the Sonic 4 theme song as you imagined it. Real talk.

Take off, running upside down
Blood rush, I can’t hear a sound
I’ve never done this, it’s such~ a thrill
There goes my lunch, wow what a spill
Lookin’ down’s looking up (Lookin’ down’s looking up)
Lookin’ up’s looking down (Lookin’ up’s looking down)
I can’t get down
I’ll keep on walking!

I’m gonna walk upside down~
Turns my smile into a frown
Iizuka’s gonna get his way~
There’s just no end to this gay

My feet will touch the sky
Iizuka’s such a nice guy
I’ve never walked like this
It’s all so brand new

My feet will touch the sky
Iizuka’s a pretty cool guy
Don’t take my hand,
The physics will keep you upright
Upright…

Upright…

Press start, running day and night
Suddenly, the physics don’t seem right
The world is flying right below my quills
There goes my lunch, wow what a spill
Lookin’ down’s looking up (Lookin’ down’s looking up)
Lookin’ up’s looking down (Lookin’ up’s looking down)
I can’t get down
I’ll keep on walking!

I’m gonna walk upside down~
Turns my smile into a frown
Iizuka’s gonna get his way~
There’s just no end to this gay

My feet will touch the sky
Iizuka’s such a nice guy
I’ve never walked like this
It’s all so brand new

My feet will touch the sky
Iizuka’s a pretty cool guy
Don’t take my hand,
The physics will keep you upright
Upright…

Upright…

(Instrumental by Iizuka on the banjo)

I think I’m going blind
Iizuka is so devine
But how will I run now, I cannot get down

Oh, I can feel it now
The numbness has won out
Don’t take my hand the physics will~ keep you~

Upright…

Just hit that boost (Just hit that boost)
We’ll take a brand new step
(I’m gonna walk upside down)

Don’t take my hand (Don’t take my hand)
Just hit that boost, alright?
The physics will keep you..
Upright!

Upright…

      If it bothers you so much, here’s a Greasemonkey script to filter it out:

    You know, when people write off Sonic fans as whiny bastards, this must be what they are referring to.

    • Reply

      Who’s whining?

    • Reply

      Shut up, Aerosol.

      • Reply

        1) Never said anyone was whining

        2) Real Talk.

        • Reply

          You implied she was whining. Or would you like to use your fiance as an excuse as to why you never said anyone was whining?

        • Reply

          I don’t even get why you have to bring her into the conversation, but.

          No. I wasn’t implying anyone was whining. I’m just saying that someone who didn’t understand the context of this poem or whatever it is could see that and go “oh my god can’t they just let it go?”.

        • Reply

          If someone doesn’t understand the context of this article they aren’t of my concern. Most people don’t make jokes with the intent to explain it afterward in detail as to why it’s supposed to be funny.

        • Reply

          Of course. I’m glad you think that way, because I wouldn’t expect you to go and explain to the type of person I was referring to that it’s not “another Sonic 4 complaint o god’ either. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that, if someone doesn’t understand the context, they could write off whoever was responsible for the article as “another whiny Sonic fan”. Again, I’m not implying that you are.

          Even if they do come to that erroneous conclusion, I could honestly care less.

    Some people call us whiny b*stards because of those angry videos on ReallyReallyHonestandForTrueTube. They somehow associated Retro with tWe had some suggestions on Sonic 4, and the physics were joke-worthy. The post wasn’t angry.

    Real talk never dies Jorge, it’s just missing in action.

    This makes me embarrassed to be a Sonic fan. I mean, honestly, why would you make a song about ONE SENTENCE (or so) in an interview using a game-that-you-praise’s theme music? [Insert soon-to-be-Internet-meme(unfortunately) that starts with R, ends with K, and has EAL TAL in the middle]

    • Reply

      I was bored and had ten minutes to waste. You feeling embarrassed to be a Sonic fan is no one’s doing but your own. You can’t blame it other people just making a lighthearted joke because of the absolute silliness of the matter.

        Just for clarification, Katzu Niku, this is the kind of person I’m talking about, pretty much. Not to invalidate your point, MetaRyan.

        • Reply

          His point was already invalid because it involves blaming other people for how he feels about something. Yeah, see how I don’t care? lol Trust me, you don’t need to point out examples.

        • Reply

          You not caring doesn’t make that fact go away though. I didn’t say I cared either, I just made a related, valid comment.

        • Reply

          You seem to be missing my point. I don’t care whether it goes away or not. I’m happy because I don’t worry myself over meaningless things like people on the internet complaining.

      • Reply

        Hmm, I’m getting too steamed at this topic. I’ll go back to playing Sonic Colors.

    I would like to congratulate you Katzu. You have officially made my day. Super Real Talk.

    Nega-Mother Wisp theme + Autotuned lyrics = Walk on the Ceiling themetune?

    Nega-Mother Wisp is the Super-Sonic boss of Sonic Colours DS, in case you didn’t play it, the song is just the Sonic Colours theme.
