The soundtrack takes the tunes from their respective levels and creates two different remixes of each, a classic 16-bit style remix and a modern remix. They're all pleasant, generally orchestral tracks that work well as mood setters.
But who are Cash Cash, and why are they in my Sonic? The next track is a fast version of the previous track, where the drums go into double time and the guitar is faster paced too.

As a note of interest, three themes are absent from Blue Blur - the unused 1-Up theme from Sonic Adventure, where it too was unused , the 20th Anniversary Jingle with or without the ring effect, but without I guess you could call it the Official 1-Up Theme and Vector's Beat from the Rooftop Run mission.
