As of last week, i came up with a song on my guitar about a certain Video Game Hero by the name of Solid Snake. After i came up with the lyrics and performed the song on my camera, i got to thinking.
Has anyone else on the forum either done or thought about doing songs based on video games? I'm not talking about covers of Suteki Da Ne or Guitar Solos over the top of the Pokemon Battle Theme. I'm talking about originally written music with a video game as the basis subject.
I've posted my video below of "A Guard's Lament (Check The Box)" but i encourage everyone to post something that they may have created, or just leave feedback to let people know what you think.
My Father was a henchman, he did henchmany things,
Til a man named Solid Snake appeared, and brought an end to him.
My Father had done nothing wrong, just a man earning his wage.
The coward struck from his hiding place, a box, the colour beige.
Oh God please, check the box
Solid Snake had killed many men, from his cardboard camouflage,
tell me how the fuck do you class that as, tactical espionage
My Father deserved better, but now he lies there dead,
Where there was once an exclamation mark, a halo rests instead.
Oh God please, Check the box
CHANGE IN CHORDS
Solid Snake if you hear me,
I'll never forgive you,
For what you took from me,
I swear that i'll kill you.
