Song of the Day #27

This song of the day is my new song obsession.  It's from "Portal" a great video game.  I like both the original featuring classically trained soprano Ellen McClain from the game and the new version recorded by Johnathon Coulton featuring Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara on vocals for Coulton's 2011 album "Artificial Heart."  Coulton was approached by Valve to write a song for a video game which was "Portal."  Being a fan of the "Half-Life" series (which is an amazing video game series), Coulton jumped on the opportunity.  This is what Coulton came up with.
