Angry Birds theme song sneaks into “The Greatest Video Game Music” album

The Angry Birds train just keeps on chugging along. After the countless mobile downloads (it hit the 500 million mark earlier this month), merchandise sales and rumoured movie deals, the rapidly growing franchise can add another achievement to its resume. The recently released The Greatest Video Game Music album, played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Andrew Skeet, features the Angry Birds main theme as one of its tracks. It’s surprisingly well done and even a delight to listen to. In fact, the entire album is fantastic. I picked it up over the weekend and listening to the Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda theme music brought back lots of good memories. The entire album can be purchased on iTunes for $9.99 ($7.99 on Amazon) and individual tracks go for $0.99 each.

If you’re an Angry Birds fan, I highly suggest you check out the 1:30 long preview of the song on iTunes. And even if you’re not a hardcore gamer, the orchestra performed soundtrack is still worth the price of admission.
