"A man chooses, A slave obeys"
While browsing Kotaku I came across this song by Brentalfloss. It's a tribute to the game Bioshock. For anyone who has played the game it's a hilarious insight. You can read the Kotaku post here
Two of my all time favourite games are both filled with art-deco surroundings and "pre-war" Jazz music (Fallout 3 & Bioshick) and this song has that wonderful jazz-y style and hilarious lyrics. I've had it on repeat for a while now. I say it's worth a listen whether you're a fan or not. But be warned if you've not played the game...it's a little...well, Grim. So caution!
And if you're really feeling musical, here are the lyrics so you can sing along!
Won'tcha come on down to Rapture, jam a needle in your arm
It'll slowly corrode your genetical code, but it's all part of the charm
So you're a gross abomination, but in time you're gonna be...
So glad ya came on down to the best little town at the bottom of the deep blue sea
Hop in a bathysphere, take in the atmosphere, it's like New York, but with more fish
This unholy demon spawn looks like Joan Rivers in the morning,
but down here she's quite a dish
Aquatic nightmare drones are known to freely roam
with little sisters who require their help
I mean to tell you plainly mister, if that thing there was my sister,
I'd believe I'd disown myself, mahhh!
So you're stuck awhile in Rapture, and politically it's ...tense?
Libertarians scream, it's an Ayn Rand wet dream, and brother I mean soakin'
I'm not even jokin'
Don'tcha know the locals love the lifestyle, watch 'em scale the walls with glee
They're glad they came on down to best little town at the bottom of the deep blue sea
Try out the U-invent, it doesn't cost a cent, you're gonna love to mix and match
Just steal some glue from evil red guy, and a screw from smelly dead guy,
and you've made some crap from scratch
And there's this Atlas Joe, right on your radio, and he'll give you helpful hints and such
I bet you'll do his bidding blindly if he utters "would you kindly," but ohhhh,
I've said too much
So, you get a bit of story and a horrid killing spree!
Because you came on down to best little town
You're tryin' not to drown in this creepy town,
It really takes the crown though it's the only town in the bottom of the deep blue sea,
Forget Atlantis, it's the best little town at the bottom of the deep blue...
Somewhere beyond the sea, they spell it R-A-P-T-U-R-E.
