Jukebox: "Peace Be With You" - Danny Baranowsky

Multiple playthroughs into The Binding of Isaac (the official most addictive computer game in existence, might I add,) and then it hits me like a ton of bricks. The single most jarring part of the game is when it draws to a lull, once Isaac has defeated all his foes on the floor, and the boss lies on the ground in defeat. In this moment, a subtle ambient song begins to play. And while it can be hard to notice, the track adds so much depth to the moment. I'd be doing the song a disservice by trying to sum it up in mere words, so I implore you to check it out yourself.

Congratulations, Danny Baranowsky. This song was probably an afterthought during your writing sessions, but it's going to stay with me a long time.
