Bioshock Infinite regularly played with the idea of splicing together different decades, resulting in cool hybrids like a floating city of classic American architecture, and alternate-dimension takes of classic songs. The Beach Boys' "God Only Knows" served as a dose of waveform-delivered culture shock in our initial moments with Columbia, translating the melody into a quartet group performance. Infinite's Burial At Sea DLC plays with music creation as well, but the efforts highlighted in this post from Irrational are less about covers and more about original takes.

Community Manager "IG.J" posted three full songs from Burial At Sea Episodes One and Two, providing the story of how each song came to be and which musical styles the songs drew influence from. Among the selections is a promotional jingle for the Old Man Winter plasmid, pitching the substance's necessity like an old-time radio ad would.

You can listen to the full takes of each song in Irrational's post, or you can allow Infinite's cover of Fortunate Son to transport you back to the war-torn streets of Columbia.
