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

Still Alive - Portal

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

City Escape - Sonic Adventure 2
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

Want You Gone - Portal 2
The Great Mighty Poo Song - Conker's Bad Fur Day
Jump Up, Super Star! - Super Mario Odyssey
Everything's Alright - To the Moon
Snake Eater - Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater
Nobody Suspects a Thing - Octodad: Dadliest Catch
Lost in Thoughts All Alone - Fire Emblem: Fates

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 Newcomers

? Fist Bump - Sonic Forces

The Contenders

Katamari on the Rocks - Katamari Damacy
Dragonborn - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Banson's Aria - Henry Hatsworth In the Puzzling Adventure
I Love You, My One and Only - Rhythm Heaven Fever
Pollyanna - Mother/Earthbound
Theme Song - Super Smash Bros. Brawl

The catchiest song I ever heard, should be number 1

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

You Were My Hattington - Battleblock Theater
Eyes On Me - Final Fantasy VIII
Ico - You Were There
Beyond the Sky - Xenoblade Chronicles
Live and Learn - Sonic Adventure 2
Driver's Test - Parappa the Rapper
His World - Sonic the Hedgehog 2006
Rescue Girl - Mighty Switch Force! 2

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

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

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

The Golden House of Wario - Wario Land: Shake It!
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

The End of a Hero - Cave Story
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
