Top Ten Greatest Video Game Songs With Lyrics

Songs in video games are not supposed to have lyrics, because whether it's immense concentration or just the pointlessness of lyrics, the music is most important. Even so, some songs in games get away with it, and these are the ones that won us all over.

The Top Ten

1 Still Alive - Portal

Why would anyone disagree? Personally, I would only vote Still Alive and Want You Gone, but I like Still Alive better.

2 City Escape - Sonic Adventure 2
3 DK Rap - Donkey Kong 64

He has no style
He has no grace
This Kong has a funny face
He can stretch his arms out
When he needs to
Inflate himself just like a balloon - Torchpost

4 Want You Gone - Portal 2
5 The Great Mighty Poo Song - Conker's Bad Fur Day
6 Everything's Alright - To the Moon
7 Snake Eater - Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater
8 Jump Up, Super Star! - Super Mario Odyssey
9 Nobody Suspects a Thing - Octodad: Dadliest Catch
10 Banson's Aria - Henry Hatsworth In the Puzzling Adventure

The Contenders

11 Katamari on the Rocks - Katamari Damacy
12 Lost in Thoughts All Alone - Fire Emblem: Fates
13 Dragonborn - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
14 I Love You, My One and Only - Rhythm Heaven Fever
15 You Were My Hattington - Battleblock Theater
16 Ain't No Rest for the Handsome - Borderlands 2

I actually kind of prefer these lyrics over the original Ain't No Rest For The Wicked. They're just THAT good. - xandermartin98

17 Pollyanna - Mother/Earthbound
18 His World - Sonic the Hedgehog 2006
19 Rescue Girl - Mighty Switch Force! 2

Catchy silly and the embodiment of the 80s disco this song is amazing

20 I.M.Meen's Theme Song - I.M.Meen
21 Song of the Moon - Cave Story

Oh, I was talking about my version of it. That's fine though. - xandermartin98

22 Mimigican Pie - Cave Story

I still cannot believe that this actually managed to be the full length of the original American Pie by don McLean. Also, I don't know how you could actually manage to not like this song's lyrics, but apparently the people on the Cave Story subreddit found a way. :/

"We were singing!
Bye-bye, Miss Toroko and King!
Hailing from a species of the most adorable thing!
This game has been the saddest since Mother 3!

Such a simple game by only one guy...
Making boys and men alike cry." - xandermartin98

23 Theme Song - Super Smash Bros. Brawl

The catchiest song I ever heard, should be number 1

24 The End of a Hero - Cave Story
25 Ain't No Rest for the Wicked - Borderlands

Loading up the game and hearing this song gives me shivers every time. This song just so accurately encompasses the wierdness and awesomeness of the Borderlands series

26 Zanza - Xenoblade Chronicles
27 True Lyrics (Here We Are + Amalgam) - Undertale
28 Ico - You Were There

It would be if the "witches, bitches, snitches" part wasn't IMPOSSIBLE to rap. - xandermartin98

38 The Fabulously Fatal Fury of Your Favorite Fawful - Bowser's Inside Story
39 The Last Battle - Cave Story
40 The Unbroken - Cave Story
