Top 10 Catchiest Video Game Songs With Vocals

Rhys from Awesome Games writes: 'As gamers, we’re so used to our music being bereft of any sort of vocal accompaniment, other than a tune to hum, that it can come as a surreal surprise when a track actually features someone’s voice. And no, we’re not talking about the epic choir chants reserved for JRPG final bosses, either.

'But just like in real life, lyrics can a make song better or worse, and many inherently soundtracks are suffer because of this. However, when a composer intentionally adds lyrics to a song in the knowledge that it will make the game that much better, then what you end up with is a winning, memorable formula. Below are ten of the catchiest songs in video games that feature vocal talent.' (Dragon's Dogma, Final Fantasy X-2, Nintendo DS, PaRappa the Rapper, PC, Persona 4, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, Retro, Sonic Adventure 2, The World Ends With You, Xbox 360, Yakuza 4)

Gitaroo Man songs are also worth a mention ;)
