I passed a neighbourhood electrical appliance shop on my way home last night, and playing over the speakers was some crappy Eurobeat remix of the Ending Theme from Vandal Hearts.

This turn-based strategy game for the Playstation was quite good, and the Ending Theme (the Opening Theme is a variation on the Ending) is unique. It's sung in a Slavic language (Serbian? Croatian? Whatever it is they speak in Yugoslavia :p) with bits of French in it. A lilting, haunting melody that tugs at the senses despite the unintelligibility of the lyrics.

The lousy techno in the remix ruined the song completely.
