[Blacklight]: So, my last theme song didn’t go so well.
[Shadow]: Because it wasn’t your theme song.
[Blacklight]: But I wasn’t willing to give up so easily! So I made a quick call to my old pal, Johnny Gioeli, you may have heard of him.
[Shadow]: You have Crush 40’s phone number?
[Blacklight]: That’s right, the writer and performer of “Open Your Heart,” “Live and Learn,” “Green Light Ride,” all your Sonic favorites. And, wouldn’t you believe it, he already wrote me a theme song! And he never even told me! Such a jokester, that Johnny.
[Shadow]: Where could this possibly be going…?
[Blacklight]: It’s going right here! To my new official theme song, titled, “Call Me Crazy.”
[Blacklight]: Ha ha ha ha ha…go away. I love that ending. And if you ask me, the song’s a bit less dated than that other one. It really reflects how I’m a new character for a new age.
[Shadow]: Really? Now you’re trying to pass this off as your theme song? You have to kidding me…
[Blacklight]: Oh, and let me guess. This one is somehow yours as well?
[Shadow]: No, it isn’t mine. It’s an independent song. If anything, it’s about Mr. Gioeli himself. This album, “Driving Through Forever,” was published in conjunction with Team Sonic Racing last year. Long after you got killed off of the show. Under what context could this have been used for you?
[Blacklight]: Well, it’s not like it actually played in a game or anything. It was just a song that my buddy Johnny wrote in reaction to his realization of what an amazing character I am. Mr. C sure doesn’t have his phone number, so we had to meet under other circumstances first, which took a while. Then he needed time to write and publish the song.
[Shadow]: If it was supposed to be about you, wouldn’t it refer more specifically to you, or your history, or the theme of contrast that defines you?
[Blacklight]: I mean, the guy’s trying to sell albums here, he couldn’t exactly let the world know that he based a song off of an OC from some guy’s fanfic.
[Shadow]: Really? So, tell me, who exactly would you be talking to in this song that’s supposedly about you?
[Blacklight]: Well, you, of course. Who else would call me crazy so adamantly, whom I desire validation from and yet hate with a fiery passion? Also, you have been to outer space. Just saying.
[Shadow]: “There’s an ocean full of you that swims around me?” What exactly would that mean?
[Blacklight]: I don’t know, I didn’t write the song. But if I were to take a guess, I’d say that it refers to how the thought of you surrounds me completely, how everything I do and everything I see relates back to you in some way.
[Shadow]: Wow, you really need some professional help.
[Blacklight]: And this is news to you?
[Mr. C]: (offscreen) So when are you going to tell everyone that you don’t actually have Johnny Gioeli’s phone number?
[Shadow]: Yeah, this isn’t your theme song either. Let it go.
[Blacklight]: You don’t know everything…

And no, Johnny Gioeli is not a guest on the show. If you ask him any questions, they probably won’t be answered.
