5 songs that totally belong in a videogame soundtrack

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's heard a song and immediately envisioned a video game it would fit in. I am? Well nevermind. Apologies for my inability to get a point across. When I write I either sound like an overexcited hyperactive 12 year old or so sarcastic that some people misinterpret it as being serious. This blog is the former. And for that, I apologise.


Mysterons - Portishead

So you're playing a new post apocalyptic shooter, lost in a strange barren world and running low on health and supplies. Everything is poisonous from the nuclear fallout, and there could be dangerous mutated monsters around any corner. Plus everything is made 10 times more atmospheric by Portishead's awesomely creepy trip-hop.

Quicksand - La Roux

I was listening to the leaked Sonic 4 soundtrack the other day and was taken aback at how "La Roux-ey" some of the tracks were. Were the old Sonic games like that? Anyway, a 2d run 'n' gun platformer with La Roux songs would be win (BULLETPROOF GEDDIT LAWL). It would probably have to be made relatively easy, because, as much as I love Elly Jackson's voice, hearing her scream "GOING IN FOR THE KIIILLL" three hundred times in a row would get extremely grating.

I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor - Arctic Monkeys

I'm not a huge fan of indie rock, but I have a soft spot for the Arctic Monkeys. Partly because their name is just plain amazing, but mainly because they know how to write a good tune. This song is epic and if you disagree you deserve to have your eyes gouged out with a blunt spatula. Imagine ripping off some guy's limbs in a brutal hack 'n' slash with this on full volume. *drools*

Utopia - Goldfrapp

This song, like the rest of the album Felt Mountain, is almost impossible to describe. But if they ever name a genre for it then it is automatically the best genre ever made ever, which means any game with this track in it would have to be brilliant. When I hear this album I picture a beautiful dystopian future world reminiscent of "Nausica� of the Valley of the Wind" that must be made into a JRPG if there's any justice in the world.

The World Should Revolve around Me - Little Jackie

Every time I hear this song it makes me feel warm and bubbly inside. Which is exactly how I feel when I play one of my favourite childhood 3d platformers. Who remembers Croc: Legend of the Gobbos? Yeah, it's aged like shit, but the music is still as awesome as it ever was, and anything that sounds even remotely similiar is godly by my standards.
