Game music has the power to earworm its way into your heart long after you put the controller down. Each week in Game That Tune, we highlight a great tune from a great game (or a great tune from a just-okay game).
Just because you’re living through a nuclear winter doesn’t mean you have to be cold and sad. After all, you have your Tomorrow Corporation-brand Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace® to keep you snug as a bug in a rug. Just add kindling and you’ll be a happy camper in no time! As for your cherished childhood memories, well, you can’t bring them with you, can you? Toss them in the fire! Here, our friends at Tomorrow Corporation have prepared a catchy little jingle that should explain everything:
See? Don’t you feel better about your situation now? Here’s a little secret, kid: It’s the slide whistle. You can tell you’re having fun whenever there’s a slide whistle around. That thing’s just too wacky to be morose! And the timpani drums make it feel like you’re at a Stephen Sondheim musical, which helps us all feel happy and confident because nothing bad ever happens in Sondheim! We were a little worried we might have lost your attention during the government-mandated exposition in the bridge, but that’s why we threw in the key change for the final chorus, just to keep your interest piqued! Ominous and unsettling? Not at all! Just listen to these satisfied apocalypse survivors…
Warning: Do not actually breathe in the burning potpourri. “A hundred billion degrees” is not an estimate. Smoke from cherished memories will cause lung tissue to become charred and brittle. Please enjoy your Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace® safely.
