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 Want You Gone - Portal 2
2 Still Alive - Portal
3 The Great Mighty Poo Song - Conker's Bad Fur Day
4 City Escape - Sonic Adventure 2
5 Everything's Alright - To the Moon
6 DK Rap - Donkey Kong 64
7 Nobody Suspects a Thing - Octodad: Dadliest Catch
8 Katamari on the Rocks - Katamari Damacy
9 Banson's Aria - Henry Hatsworth In the Puzzling Adventure
10 Dragonborn - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Contenders

11 You Were My Hattington - Battleblock Theater
12 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

13 Rescue Girl - Mighty Switch Force! 2

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

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

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

16 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

17 The End of a Hero - Cave Story
18 Zanza - Xenoblade Chronicles
19 True Lyrics (Here We Are + Amalgam) - Undertale
20 His World - Sonic the Hedgehog 2006
