Dear SEGA, I hear that legal troubles regarding Sonic 3's original soundtrack might be part of what's holding you back from a re-release of Sonic 3 ( www.sonic3remastered.com/ More info here)
I suggest an alternative solution to trying to get the rights to use the songs that are currently providing a roadblock in greenlighting the project.
A lifelong fan
NOTE: I did not adhere to the polyphony limits of the sound chip.
[Rather than paring act 2 down like the original song did, I ramped it up. I couldn't resist paring it down in a few spots to bring back the feeling of isolation the original had in spades.]
