VG Music #1 - Battle on the Space Colony ARK

So here it is, part one of where I chronicle my favorite music in video games. To get me pumped for this series, I chose a song that never fails to get me all psyched-up and ready to get to work. And that song is...
"For True Story."
Oh, the memories flooding over me.
This song (featuring Everett Bradley on vocals) plays on Sonic Adventure 2 (Battle), during the climactic final boss fight of both the Hero and Dark Side stories. The battle is a race between Sonic and Shadow (with the player character depending on which story you're playing) in space. If there's one thing that gets me in the zone for an epic race against either of the world's fastest creatures, it's "For True Story."
The intensity of this song gives the player the right amount of stress, the right amount that tells you that you need to focus. Of course, when I hear this, I instantly hear Sonic's "I'll use your CHAOS CONTROL!" You'll hear it so often during that boss fight, you'll probably be hearing it in your dreams... or nightmares, I guess.
It's definitely a song that makes you think, "Yes, this is a boss battle and yes, it is awesome." Just like boss battle BGM should be. However, I should note that this isn't my favorite boss battle track from Sonic Adventure 2. I'll be posting that one a little later... Oh ho ho, how mysterious I am...
