Jun Senoue on The Best of Crush 40: Super Sonic Songs:
Live & Learn
For this song, the short version that was made as the BGM of title screen of Sonic Adventure 2 and that ends with only the riff part became the foundation. In the studio of a L.A. suburb, all the flows were completed in the afternoon of a day when I brought the equipment into a small room beside the studio and performed the song composition while an engineer was working on the mixes. On that day, the tape of ADAT that I had recorded the demo to was still in hand, whereupon the demo sound source in which Johnny recorded the song for the first time had gone missing! It is also a song in which the standpoint of writing lyrics was ready while Johnny changed it to an easy-to-sing melody himself based on the melody idea of the music that I composed. Later, this song was also used in the trailer announcing that Sonic would participate in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but I was not told about it beforehand, so I was very surprised!
