8 Great Renditions of Portal’s “Still Alive”

As you guys know, I recently played through and enjoyed the hell out of Valve’s Portal.  One thing I forgot to mention, however, was how much I loved the song “Still Alive” that plays over the end credits.  Ever since I finished the game. Jonathan Coulton’s tune has been stuck in my head, although not in the annoying “Hanson Mmmbop” sort of way.  Yeah, I really dig this song.

It turns out that I’m not alone in my quasi-obsession with “Still Alive,” as a quick Internet search shows that many, many fans of the song have played and recorded their own versions.  Even better, some are surprisingly awesome.  Below, you can check out eight incredible renditions of Portal’s “Still Alive.”  And then find yourself humming it for the next week.
