Unoriginal Soundtracks Podcast: Space Invaders Edition

Every other Wednesday I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, songs about world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Searching for random terms on Spotify is a great way to discover new music and rediscover old classics.

Space Invaders is a cave painting next to rich tapestries like Heavy Rain and Mass Effect. But that doesn't mean there aren't themes and allegories to explore. Or invent. Now tremble, puny human, before this superior playlist!
