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)

*claps* for Sonic. Crush 40 music was always tight!

Gitaroo Man songs are also worth a mention ;)

Persona 3 Burn My Dread is 1000 times better than P4 Reach out the Truth.
