Portal’s “Still Alive” Rock Cover perf. Nate Smith

Pokemon has always had fantastic music ranging from epic to calming. I’m not familiar with this particular song from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, though I soon will be once I get the remakes coming out, but the way Insaneintherainmusic plays this piano cover seems to convey the innocent and youthful adventure that has make Pokemon the experience …

So apparently there was a live performance of The Last of Us. You can watch it here. That’s not the really interesting part.
