about

Portal is a first person puzzle game based almost entirely off the mechanic that you have a gun that can shoot two portals that let you travel from place to place via them. It's full of whit and charm with the background story going on, but mainly it's all about "You have somewhere to go. Get there. Don't know how, but you have this portal gun thing." Portal 2 was similar, but longer, more refined, and had even more witty story there in the background if you wanted it. Classic games, must play stuff, IMO.

So I don't know where the idea to mash these songs together...and then do it in a pop-bluegrass came from. But I did it... I know a lot of people seem to think these songs are played out (especially Still Alive). But hey, they're well written songs. Interesting chord changes, memorable melodies, creative instrumentation, yadda yadda. And I wanted to tribute these songs and the games. Hope you dig it.

OH AND ONE LAST THING ALMOST FORGOT. Another VGM-er did some vocals in this song. He actually recorded the whole song doing the harmony slightly above, and did a good job. Unfortunately I wasn't able to use much of it, and he didn't have time to film video either. But his voice is in there in the choruses on the line "That's what I'm couting on." So thanks to him. Here's his channel if you're interested in checking him out.

lyrics

This was a triump
I'm making a note here, huge success
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction
Aperture Science
We do what we must because we can
For the good of all of us
Except the ones who are dead

But there sense crying over every mistake
You just keep on trying 'til you run out of cake
And the science get's done and you make a neat gun
For the people who are still a live


Well here we are again
It's always such a pleasure
Remember when you tried to kill me twice
Oh how we laughed and laughed
Except I wasn't laughing
Under the circumstances I've been shockingly nice

You want you freedom take it
That's what I'm counting on
I'll use to want you dead but
Now I only want you gone

She was a lot like you
Maybe not quite as heavy
Now little Caroline is in here too
One day they woke me up
So I could live forever
It's such a shame the same will never happen to you

You've got your short sad life left
That's what I'm counting on
I'll let you get right to it
Go ahead and leave me

I think I prefer to stay inside
Maybe I'll find someone else to help me

Oh
Did you think I meant you
That would be funny, if it weren't so sad
Well you have been replaced
I don't need anyone now
Maybe when I delete you I'll stop feeling so bad

Go make some new disasters
That's what I'm counting on
You're someone else's problem
Now I only want you gone (Still alive)
Now I only want you gone (I'm doing science and I'm still alive)
Now I only want you gone (Oh yes, I'm still alive)
