Wiz Khalifa And Friends' Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Song Is Kind Of Great

Wiz Khalifa And Friends' Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Song Is Kind Of Great

Remember when the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer came out and it was set to “Gangsta’s Paradise” for some stupid reason? The official movie theme, “Speed Me Up” from Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty, and Sueco the Child, fits so much better, and its video is pretty cool, too.

I am something of a connoisseur of self-referential movie rap themes, and “Speed Me Up” is an exquisite...

Let's Be Happy And Listen To Portal Songs

Let's Be Happy And Listen To Portal Songs

GlaDOS, the artificially intelligent computer system from Portal, is one of the greatest video game villains of all time, but she’s an even better singer. Nothing picks me up on a dreary morning like listening to a trio of upbeat tunes from a robotic life form that’s spent countless hours trying to kill me.

Portal and Portal 2 are an amazing pair of first-person puzzle games that have had a...

I Can't Get The Song From Netflix's The Witcher Out Of My Head

I Can't Get The Song From Netflix's The Witcher Out Of My Head

I’ve always been fascinated by Christmas music. It’s incredibly odd that we have a whole genre of popular music dedicated to the last month of the year, some of it awful, some of it charming, most of it involving sleigh bells. I like the oddball tunes most of all: “Last Christmas” by Wham!, “Don’t Shoot Me Santa Claus” by The Killers, and “Toss A Coin To Your Witcher” by Jaskier the bard in...

Upcoming Undertale Live Show Will Let Audiences Choose The Outcome

Upcoming Undertale Live Show Will Let Audiences Choose The Outcome

Many games have multiple branching paths where players decide who lives and who dies, indie role-playing game mega-hit Undertale chief among them. Very few (possibly zero?) concerts can boast the same thing. Undertale Live, then, will be a unique experience pretty much no matter how it pans out.

Undertale Live is, first and foremost, a concert, but it’s also more, billing itself as a “meeting...

Toad's Performance Of 'Shallow' Should Win A Grammy

Noted vocalist Toad has finally released his long-awaited version of “Shallow,” the Oscar-winning duet from Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and it is truly the height of vocal performance. If you’ve already written a piece about the top songs of the decade, talk about bad timing!

Toad, of course, is a big Gaga fan himself, having apparently attended a concert of hers last year:

Twenty Years Later, Chrono Cross Remains A Musical Masterpiece

Twenty Years Later, Chrono Cross Remains A Musical Masterpiece

I’m playing Greedfall right now and enjoying myself in spite of some misgivings . One thing I miss at the moment—and it’s something crucial to role-playing games—is a solid musical score. There’s moments of rousing action music, but it’s very limited. That got me thinking: What RPG has the best music? The answer is simple: It’s Chrono Cross, and nothing else has ever come close.

The Original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Soundtrack Is Still A Blast

The Original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Soundtrack Is Still A Blast

Gaming series known for their superior soundtracks often have one thing in common — a wide array of powerful or catchy music orchestrated to fit a specific environment. Though plenty of games (mostly annual sports series) have used popular prerecorded tunes as part of their soundtrack in the past, they rarely stand out from the crowd. But Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater did, and two decades later it...

By The Gods, I Just Want To Hang Out At Charon's Shop In Hades

Escaping the House of Hades is no easy task. The ever-changing pathways through the Underworld are filled with danger—vicious specters prowl, eager for a kill, and traps are scattered everywhere. The music is a steady, pulsating rhythm to amplify that struggle. It can feel daunting. That’s why, whenever Charon’s shop appears, it’s a welcome respite.
