10 Of The Best Video Game Theme Songs: The Vocal Track Edition

Nan Rymer of RantGaming writes:

"If you’ve been a life long gamer like myself, you’ve probably heard your share of the original MIDI renditions and/or orchestral arrangements of the instrumental opening themes to classic video games like the Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Contra. But there’s so much more to video game music, and some of the best songs I’ve ever heard–songs that I’ll shamelessly belt out in the shower like a true nerd–are none other than the vocal tracks from some of my favorite games. So without further ado, here is my list of ten of the best video game theme songs, the vocal track edition." (Chrono Cross, Culture, Katamari Damacy, Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete, Mirror's Edge, Nier, PaRappa the Rapper, PC, PS2, PS3, Retro, World of Warcraft, Xbox 360)

MY DEAR LORD those are some of my favorite songs of all time. Great piece for sure!

The Sega CD opening to Lunar is better than that damn Boat Song.

That's the one I practiced singing for hours and hours (yeah, I admit it). But I thought the Boat Song was more touching, at least for me :)

I'm glad Nier made this list. If any game deserves mention here from current gen, it's definitely it.

Nier really has some amazing music, music that's often over-shadowed by the soundtracks of Square-Enix's "other," more mainstream titles. Really recommend checking out all of it, as I feel it's so much more than mere "game music."

Haha, if you saw my mp3, you'd see that I actually have all of nier's music on it. The stuff in the game and post-production mixes. Really amazing stuff.
