For the past few weeks, you have all been left in the very capable, hard-working hands of OrangeMouth founder and creator, Marla-Joy, to provide you with some memorable tunes every Tuesday. I won’t lie; I think she’s picked some pretty decent ones, and will continue to do so. But you know, there are just some tunes that take someone with a slightly different style to discover and appreciate. I present one such tune to you this week.
I have long been an advocate for the positive effect that video games can have on one’s emotional and mental health. Granted, this is not a blanket term; I am not talking about Fifa here. Some games may have more negative effects if, as with most things, they are not enjoyed in moderation and balanced with an otherwise healthy, active lifestyle. But enough with the disclaimer. Here at OrangeMouth we like to focus on the positive outlook of things.
This week’s music video, therefore, is a tongue-in-cheek James Bond style track from one of the most memorable games I enjoyed during my teenage years. It is one that I think provides a perfect tonic to the cold, post-Christmas period we have all just endured. While this general topic is one I am sure to expand upon in a future post, for now I present to you:
“Snake Eater”, written by Norihiko Hibino and performed by Cynthia Harrell, from Metal Gear Solid 3. Enjoy this one, guys!
