A epic song from a epic game

Live and Learn...
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!

2 Want You Gone - Portal 2

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.

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

You were my only friend
Oh, did you think I meant you
That would be funny
If it weren’t so sad - Ilikegames

3 Zelda Theme - The Legend of Zelda

I knew dare'd be a lot of Zelda songs

4 Still Alive - Portal 1

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

Almost as good as this cake - Ilikegames

"This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here:
huge success..."

5 Megalovania - Undertale

Honestly one of the best songs out there, has that amazing fighting theme.

The entire soundtrack for Undertale is phenomenal in my opinion, but Megalovania certainly sticks out among them.

This song just shows you what is the truth that lies in front of you. And why is this so low?

It's one of the best songs out there, probably one of the only songs in the game to have a rock and roll feel to it!

6 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)

7 Super Smash Bros Brawl Theme

This should be in the top 3

8 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.

9 Lost Woods - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
10 Lego Marvel City Theme

Did not expect this one

The Newcomers

? Fear Not This Night - Guild Wars 2

Plays at the end of the core game's story. Composed by Jeremy Soule. - Cyri

? Fly Octo Fly - Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion

The Contenders

11 Fist Bump - Sonic Forces

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

12 What I'm Made of - Sonic Heroes

Most of this list will be filled with sonic songs

13 Mario Theme - Super Mario Bros.

I get strangely emotional when I listen to this - thunderstar1124

This whole list is pretty generic up to number 16.

14 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colors

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

15 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!

16 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!

17 Buoy Base - Super Mario Galaxy
18 Suspense - Doom
19 Vampire Killer - Castlevania
20 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

I prefer the 3DS song. - lamourieparkinson

21 Champion Lance/Red - Pokemon Heartgold/Soulsilver
22 Hyrule Field - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
23 Galacta Knight Second Half - Kirby Return to Dreamland

One of the best Kirby themes ever. But, there are several other songs that are better than Galacta Knight's.

The music fits perfectly to the boss EPIC

This music is amazing

24 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

25 Dragon Roost Island - Zelda Wind Waker
26 Moon Theme - Ducktales
27 One-Winged Angel - Final Fantasy VII

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

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

It should be AT LEAST top 5

Kenny Omega has a moved called this and a FF themed merch tee... - EliHbk
