Top Ten Greatest Video Game Songs With LyricsSongs 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
Why would anyone disagree? Personally, I would only vote Still Alive and Want You Gone, but I like Still Alive better.
Love the passive aggressiveness
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
Deep lyrics that just sound poetic. The lyrics describe the Avatar in fancy riddles, and it's amazing. Quite embarrassing that songs meant entirely to be silly are above this one. To me, "Still Alive" (Portal & at the top of this list), "Lifelight" (Super Smash Bros Ultimate and not on this list), and "Reach for the Stars" from Sonic Colors are true contenders.
The catchiest song I ever heard, should be number 1
I actually kind of prefer these lyrics over the original Ain't No Rest For The Wicked. They're just THAT good. - xandermartin98
Catchy silly and the embodiment of the 80s disco this song is amazing
Oh, I was talking about my version of it. That's fine though. - xandermartin98
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
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
It would be if the "witches, bitches, snitches" part wasn't IMPOSSIBLE to rap. - xandermartin98
"... To touch the source, as all life prays... Hope keeps on fading." - xandermartin98
