Laura Shigihara - Plants v. Zombies Soundtrack

Whenever I water a plant, I think to myself "In the event of a Zombie Apocalypse, what's this plant going to do for me?". Lucky for me, my questions have finally been answered by the folks over at PopCap with their quirky tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies. In the event that zombies come to your neighborhood, run out to Lowes and buy a ton of sunflowers (you'll need those for extra sun to grow the rest of your botanical army). Strategically arrange your plants for pure flora destruction as you sit and watch from the comfort of your Zombie-free home.

The soundtrack to this game is a fun, quirky arrangement that is far beyond that of your average flash game. For those of you who haven't enjoyed the Electronic explosion in the study music series, here is some indie-classical music...and zombies. The composer Lisa Shigihara has put together an impressive score for this addicting tower defense flash game that is worth listening to even when not playing the game. Shigihara is new to the under-appreciated genre of video game music composition, but the success of this game should open many doors for her.

You can find the soundtrack here: Plants vs. Zombies Soundtrack

Keep Rocking.
