Unoriginal Soundtracks: Halo Combat Evolved / Anniversary 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. Make requests to @USPodcast on Twitter.

This November is special for fans of purple sci-fi shooters; it's Halo: Combat Evolved's tenth birthday. Microsoft is celebrating by releasing Halo: Anniversary Edition, but I'm celebrating with a playlist of songs about the game that saved Microsoft's console launch.
