I’ve been catching up on my “game” of choice (Second Life) recently, and so I decided to do this week’s SMILE on video games. Yep… my inspiration’s really grand and awe-inspiring isn’t it xD Enjoy!
First up is Eiffel 65‘s My Console (lyrics). This song is pretty simple when it comes to lyrics, but it’s got a fun beat to dance to. I remember this song coming out in my teens when video games were like “the big thing”… I feel old now haha
Vixx‘s Rock Ur Body (lyrics)(Korean) is up next. Yes, it is secretly my mission to make you hear all of Vixx’s songs before the year is over mwhaha… but, seriously, while this song might not be literally about video games, the context fits.
Third is DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince‘s Human Video Game (lyrics). This song touched on video game addiction before it even became a “thing”, and it also features some great beatboxing by Ready Rock C.
The last song this week is KFaceTV‘s Talk Nerdy To Me (lyrics – in video description), a parody of Jason Derulo‘s Talk Dirty ft. 2 Chainz because, really, you expected nerds not to? This doesn’t focus specifically on video games, but geek culture in general.
What other songs about video games do you know? Let me know in a comment below, and be sure to include any suggestions you may have for future SMILEs!
