2. Eternity – Blue Dragon
The Xbox 360 exclusive RPG called Blue Dragon was quite unremarkable really, but this song, played when you were fighting its many bosses, perhaps stood out for all the wrong reasons. Featuring the vocal talent of Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan, listening to Eternity is quite possibly the audio equivalent to rubbernecking when driving past a car crash – you know it’s wrong and that you shouldn’t, but you just have to.
1. Snake Eater – Metal Gear Solid 3
Metal Gear Solid 3 features what has to be the cheesiest yet most awesome theme song of all time in the history of videogames; this great little number called Snake Eater. With vocals performed by Cynthia Harrell, Snake Eater channels the essence of a great James Bond theme song and runs with it, creating something that is very special indeed. Fitting the game perfectly, Snake Eater may be cheesy and overdramatic, but it made booting up Metal Gear Solid 3 an absolute delight and should be remembered for years to come. Onwards and upwards Kojima!
