Top Ten Video Game Songs

The Top Ten

1 Megalovania - Undertale

It's a good song - CrypticMemory

It is the perfect combination of excitement and suspense. It is the perfect ending for the genocide run.

Megalovania and Death by Glamour and two of the best songs from this game, and Megalovania definitely hits top ten!

So much you in this song it makes you wanna go crazy

2 Live and Learn - Sonic Adventure Two

Who else checked the list for this song

ROLLIN AROUND AT THE SPEED OF SOUND, GOT PLACES to G... Wait, how did Live and Learn get on this list but not City Escape?

A epic song from a epic game


3 Want You Gone - Portal 2

Definitely one of the best

Loved this one... but I personally like Exile Villify more

Honestly one of the most memorable songs in video game history, in my opinion at least.

It wraps up the game in the best fashion I have ever seen.

4 Zelda Theme - The Legend of Zelda

I knew dare'd be a lot of Zelda songs

5 Hopes and Dreams - Undertale

Favorite song - CrypticMemory

6 Still Alive - Portal 1

Although Want You Gone is awesome, this takes the cake as the better song, pun genuinely unintended.

Almost as good as this cake - Ilikegames

It was ether this or want you gone for number one it's still good but want you gone is a tiny bit better.

I like Both this and 'Want you gone' equally. But since the latter is already number one, I will vote for this to get it higher. - DragonHarrier

7 You Will Know Our Names - Xenoblade Chronicles

You will know this song

Haha yess I love this song. I also enjoy the main loz theme and lost woods, but this song is always stuck in my head :D

the TOONZ!

8 Gerudo Valley - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Yes just yes oh and ocarina of time medley should be here - TheCheese45

Okay... Yeah, the Portal songs are automatically the BEST, and I totally agree, but I love love LOOVEEE Gerudo Valley. I would listen to this while I would do my school work, I'd just run to Gerudo Fortress and have it on for like, 5 hours. Oh wait... I still do that. Anyway, this is the best song ever...

...And also Love's Vagrant... Smiles to those who even know what that song is. (Sob)

9 Battle Against a True Hero - Undertale

Should be in the tens in my opinion - Pokemonfan10

10 Crystal Area - Kirby Super Star

Absolutely stunning. - CrypticMemory

The Newcomers

? Opening Theme - Super Mario Bros. Wii
? Waterfall - Undertale

The Contenders

11 Super Smash Bros Brawl Theme

This should be in the top 3

12 What I'm Made of - Sonic Heroes

Most of this list will be filled with sonic songs

13 Jump Up, Super Star! - Super Mario Odyssey

This song, holy crap this just gets me moving, its amazing! - tacoperson

Perfection at it's perfection

Dangerously catchy - Ilikegames

This needs to be more higher.
Past MEGALOVANIA, at-least.

14 Don't Speak Her Name - Fire Emblem: Awakening

Combines the anger the characters feel with the sorrow of the situation. AWESOME

One of the most beautiful but sad soundtracks I have ever heard. Truely a masterpiece of a song.

15 Lost Woods - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
16 Dreiton - Minecraft
17 Lego Marvel City Theme

Did not expect this one

18 Engaging the Enemy - Xenoblade Chronicles
19 Grand Finale - Mario & Luigi Bower's Inside Story


Best song ever!

"Thunder and lightning everywhere, yet I am having chortles!
And now my burger's dripping ketchup and the blood of mortals!
I'll show you something that'll make you wish you were a waffle!
The fabulously fatal fury of your favorite Fawful! "

I think we've just found a new contender for the best VGM lyrics ever made. I wish I understood why they are so underrated despite the immense popularity of the music itself. - xandermartin98

20 Good Egg Galaxy - Super Mario Galaxy
21 Fist Bump - Sonic Forces

Pretty good song, not the best sonic song out there but definitely ONE of the best. - tacoperson

22 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colors

Segas breakthrough of a Sonic game came with a epic theme.

23 Mario Theme - Super Mario Bros.

This whole list is pretty generic up to number 16.

I get strangely emotional when I listen to this - thunderstar1124

24 Dark Pit's Theme - Kid Icarus: Uprising
25 In the Final - Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

This is the best final boss music to accompany the best final boss in any mario game.

26 Battle! Zinnia - Oras
27 Zinnia - Pokemon Oras

I'm honestly surprised that this isn't in the top ten. This is easily the best battle theme in all of Pokemon!

28 Buoy Base - Super Mario Galaxy
29 Vampire Killer - Castlevania
30 Suspense - Doom
31 Tables Turn - Wonderful 101
32 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

I prefer the 3DS song. - lamourieparkinson

33 Champion Lance/Red - Pokemon Heartgold/Soulsilver
34 Hyrule Field - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
35 One-Winged Angel - Final Fantasy VII

It should be AT LEAST top 5

Really? 26? This should be way higher, top 10 at least

Perfect just perfect the music the singer the story even its just perfect

Advent Children is much better in my opinion

36 Dragon Roost Island - Zelda Wind Waker

Nostalgic ;) I have no idea how or why this is only at 1%.

37 Moon Theme - Ducktales
38 Galacta Knight Second Half - Kirby Return to Dreamland

The music fits perfectly to the boss EPIC

This music is amazing

40 Menu Theme - Half-Life
41 Final Boss - Yoshi's Island

46 Final Boss - Phase 2 - Lava - New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Perfect for my edgy teenage self

48 Super Mario Bros. 2 Theme - Super Mario Bros. 2
49 His World (Zebrahead Version) - Sonic the Hedgehog 2006
50 Masked Dedede - Kirby Super Star Ultra and Triple Deluxe
