Top Ten Video Game Songs

The Top Ten

1 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

2 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.

3 Zelda Theme - The Legend of Zelda

I knew dare'd be a lot of Zelda songs

4 Megalovania - Undertale

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

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!

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

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 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 Super Smash Bros Brawl Theme

This should be in the top 3

8 Lost Woods - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
9 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.

10 Lego Marvel City Theme

Did not expect this one

The Newcomers

? Forever He Will Be My Hero - Captain Falcon - F-Zero GX
? Lifelight - Super Smash Bros Ultimate

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 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colors

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

13 What I'm Made of - Sonic Heroes

Most of this list will be filled with sonic songs

14 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

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 Suspense - Doom
18 Buoy Base - Super Mario Galaxy
19 Vampire Killer - Castlevania
20 Champion Lance/Red - Pokemon Heartgold/Soulsilver
21 Hyrule Field - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
22 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

I prefer the 3DS song. - lamourieparkinson

23 Dragon Roost Island - Zelda Wind Waker
24 Moon Theme - Ducktales
25 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

26 Menu Theme - Half-Life
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 Engaging the Enemy - Xenoblade Chronicles
30 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

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