Benny Benack III is featured singing his face off crooning like Frank Sinatra and playing trumpet in The 8-Bit Big Band's arrangement of one of video game musics favorite songs, "Still Alive" from Portal 1.
This arrangement is inspired by Nelson Riddle's fantastic writing on his arrangement of I've Got the World On A String for Sinatra. Hope you enjoy!
