When you beat Portal you're treated to this song. It's called "Still Alive" by Jonathan Coulton ( Loved it so much I made it into a video. Enjoy!

Edit: Added in music credits. Thanks!

This was a triumph
I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction
Aperture science
We do what we must because we can
For the good of all of us
Except the ones who are dead
But there's no sense crying over every mistake
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake
And the science gets done
And you make a neat gun for the people who are still alive
I'm not even angry
I'm being so sincere right now
Even though you broke my heart and killed me
And tore me to pieces
And threw every piece into a fire
As it burned it hurt because I was so happy for you
Now these points of data make a beautiful line
And we're all out of beta we're releasing on time
So I'm GLaD I got burnt
Look at all the things we've learnt
For the people that are still alive
Go ahead and leave me
I think I prefer to stay inside
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you
Maybe Black Mesa
Anyway this cake is great
It's so delicious and moist
Look at me still talking when there's science to do
And when I look out there it makes me GLaD I'm not you
I've experiments to run
There is research to be done on the people who are still alive
And believe me I am still alive
I'm doing science and I'm still alive
I feel fantastic and I'm still alive
And while you're dying I'll be still alive
And while you're dead I will be still alive
Still alive
Still alive

if you speed the music without the song up then you will hear the portal radio

Great video. When playing the game I thought it would be a horror type but it ended up sad. This brought light to that and other aspects of the song. Too bad most people in the cake is a lie meme don't see what the point of the cake being a lie was.

I saw a small hint of portal and Half-Life in the same universe!
She said "You could somewhere else like Black Mesa... Ha Ha FAT CHANCE!"
I'm SOOOOO happy!
