Top Ten Video Game Songs

The Top Ten

1 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.

Love Portal

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

2 Live and Learn - Sonic Adventure Two

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


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

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 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)

6 Megalovania - Undertale

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

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

An amazing and atmospheric track. Why aren't more Undertale songs on here?

DUN dundundundundun DUN dundundundundun derderderderder

7 Super Smash Bros Brawl Theme

This should be in the top 3

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

Did not expect this one

10 Fist Bump - Sonic Forces

The Contenders

11 What I'm Made of - Sonic Heroes

Most of this list will be filled with sonic songs

12 Jump Up, Super Star! - Super Mario Odyssey

Dangerously catchy - Ilikegames

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

13 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colors

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

14 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.

15 Suspense - Doom
16 Vampire Killer - Castlevania
17 You Will Know Our Names - Xenoblade Chronicles

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

18 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

I prefer the 3DS song. - lamourieparkinson

19 Champion Lance/Red - Pokemon Heartgold/Soulsilver
20 Hyrule Field - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
21 Zinnia - Pokemon Oras
22 Buoy Base - Super Mario Galaxy
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 Dragon Roost Island - Zelda Wind Waker
25 Menu Theme - Half-Life
26 Engaging the Enemy - Xenoblade Chronicles
27 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

28 Final Boss - Yoshi's Island
29 Moon Theme - Ducktales
30 Runway - Goldeneye 007
31 Revived Power - Shadow of the Colossus
32 Final Boss - Phase 2 - Lava - New Super Mario Bros. Wii
33 One-Winged Angel - Final Fantasy VII

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

Advent Children is much better in my opinion
