Stealth Classics

June 10, 2009

Miles was playing Little Big Planet on the PS3, locked in mortal combat with the final boss in the game. I was about to leave him to his button-twitching when I realized I recognized the background music. I waited for Miles to stop, then asked him if he knew what the music was.

“Yup, all the songs in the game have names. This one is called ‘Battle on the Ice.’ It’s awesome!”

Sure enough, it was “Battle on the Ice” from Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky. I’d love to see this trend continue: game soundtrack designers slipping classical tracks into the mix. It would have to be easier than slipping vegetables into dinners.
