BioShock 2 record contains ode to Rapture, is creepy

Last week, select members of the press received an actual, physical, gramophone-not-included BioShock 2 record from Take-Two. After scouring the MP3-ridden wasteland that is earth for a gramophone, Kotaku listened to the thing.

Its two sides contain what Kotaku describes as a “Rapture anthem,” interrupted only once by the sounds of a Little Sister wondering if Big Daddy will come and find her. Guess our dreams of Big Daddy starting an East vs. West coast rap feud will have to wait.

Apparently, this continues a story started in the first BioShock 2 promotional item, in which someone was searching for his “daughter.” Are these hints at the plot structure of BioShock 2? Probably.
