A cover of The Jetzons' "Hard Times" from 1982. This track was never officially released and would eventually be re-purposed as the music from Ice Cap Zone in Sonic 3.

Our interpretation brings together elements of the original track with the feel of Ice Cap Zone.



If I could have all the women in the world
I would take this time to leave
The pressure's on and I'm not some kind of strong man
So take this pain from me

Don't give it a second thought
I can see you've got better things to do
So just take your things and leave

Hard Times
Happiest days of my life
Hard Times gone by (x2)

Late at night with the darkness all around me
I'm drinking all alone
Nothing here but my medicine to guide me
Since I've been on my own

Will I be forgotten now?
Memories that continue to amaze me
Are all but over now

Hard Times
Happiest days of my life
Hard Times gone by (x4)
