The Best Licensed Songs Used in Video Game Commercials Image via YouTube

"O Mio Babbino Caro" - Cecilia Fusco, Opera d'Oro Players

Album:Opera D'Oro - At the Movies  (2006)
Video Game: Grand Theft Auto III (2001)

The contribution of Grand Theft Auto III to the list of awesome video game trailer music still stands as one of the best ever. The opera classic, "O Mio Babbino Caro" made the game stereotypically mobsteriffic as it drums up visions of The Godfather film. It's when the commercial got to its end is when the true spine chilling beginsr. We saw an insane car jump in rhythm with a subtle fade-out of the music as it drove off across a grassy mound. Ever since then, Rockstar has been able to shake us down long before the release of a new game.
