Five Awesomely Weird Musical Moments in Games

Hardcore Gamer: There something to be said about a memorable musical moment in a game. Some songs bring out emotional power, lighthearted excitement or just an apropos approach to giving a game a distinct vibe and identity. We’ve all heard the Super Mario Bros. theme and Final Fantasy VII’s “One-Winged Angel” enough to know how great they are in the world of gaming music, but some performances are just more difficult to classify. They have a lingering effect, one that’s memorable and maybe even legendary, but it’s tough to set them next to classic tracks like the Hyrule Castle theme in Zelda. Plainly and simply, they are just too weird to have that happen. But that’s not in any way saying that they are bad, hence the reason this article exists. Here are five musical performances in video games that are so surreal and bizarre that we can only properly title them “awesomely weird.” Enjoy! (Conker: Live & Reloaded, Conker's Bad Fur Day, GameCube, Metal Gear Solid 3 HD, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, PC, PS2, PS3, Saints Row: The Third, Xbox 360)

Really think we need a musical like game.....not that High School Musical crap I mean something in the style of War of the Worlds Musical. It's mostly narration in the songs so it could be great when playing.
