The Portal Song

Warning: If you haven't played and finished Portal, part of the Orange Box, then you shouldn't read this blog entry!

Okay, you're still reading, so let the spoilers flow.

At the end of Portal there's a very cool song called "Still Alive" that plays over the end credits. Jonathon Coulton is the musician behind the song and he talks about writing and recording the song on his blog here.

It's a beautiful, ironic, bittersweet song and you can listen to it while watching the end credits here.

We need more developers to use great music like this in games. Let's hope Brutal Legend delivers.
