Game music of the day: Plants vs Zombies

Today, we’re taking a break from the blood, the gore, the dismemberment, and the general abundance of violence in videogames. Today, it’s all about adorable plants, loveable zombies, and what just might be the cutest piece of candy coated game music we’ve ever heard.

“Zombies on Your Lawn” was composed and performed by Laura Shigihara and appeared at the very end of Plants vs. Zombies with an excellent music video that perfectly captured the spirit of PopCap’s unique and addictive take on the tower defense genre.Shigihara’s soft, lilting voice lights up the room and will warm your heart with its delightful lyrics and melodies. If you like what you hear, visit Shigihara’s blog for more song samples and news about upcoming projects.
