This Might Be My Favourite Video Game Song Ever

There's a lot to choose from, I know, but this - called simply "The Video Game Song" - is probably my all-time game song.


I actually picked up the album this is from, Sole's Learning to Walk, in a second-hand store around 6-7 years ago. First time I listened to it, I blew straight past it, not paying any attention to the lyrics.

Second time though, oh boy. I don't like it for its sparse production, or monotonous delivery (aided by Sole's former Anticon labelmate Alias), but I'll be damned if that's not the most constructive use of a lifetime's worth of video gaming I've heard in a rap song. It's exhaustive.


When I think "video game music" I don't think of music about video games, but music from them. This is amusing, but there's no way I would rate it higher than, say, Dragon Roost Island.
