This week’s Shared Topic over at Blog Azeroth was suggested by yours truly!
The WoW in-game music is awesome, but there are times (at least for me) when I’m listening to my own music instead. Are there any specific songs that you connect with WoW? Whether it’s tied to your own characters in some way or simply because it reminds you of WoW. Please share!
There are a few songs out there that make me think of WoW anytime that I hear them. Usually because I heard them while levelling a specific character or when fighting a certain boss. Or perhaps it was part of a machinima that I really liked.
A lot of the music I have/listen to are things that either happened to play on the radio (or in my case, more often the Top List on Spotify) or a friend sent me to listen to.
Song 1: Sugar We’re Going Down by Fall Out Boy
When I first started playing WoW my sister had just sent me a few songs to listen to, and since I’m lazy they just kept going on repeat on my media player. Since then, whenever I hear this song I think of my first Undead Priest, Braithe, when she was running around in Silverpine Forest.
Song 2: Shut Your Mouth by Pain
When I gave up on the Priest I started playing an Undead Rogue (ironically named Saint), and I always considered this song to be the Rogue song. I believe it also appeared on many rogue PvP videos of the era, which probably contributed to the feeling.
Song 3: Big Blue Dress by Cranius
This isn’t an “actual” song from a proper band of course, but you have no idea how many times I’ve had this song going in the background when playing WoW. It made me want to roll a Mage! And I’m a Warlock! Why would I ever want to be a Mage??
Other songs that make me think of WoW are ones that I myself have used for my guild’s boss kill videos. Below is a list of some of them.
You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid – The Offspring
Toreador II – Apocalyptica
Almost Easy – Avenged Sevenfold (I used quite a few of their songs to be fair)
Ghost Opera – Kamelot
Ice Queen – Within Temptation
Fleurs du Mal – Sarah Brightman
The Quiet Place – In Flames
This is War – 30 Seconds to Mars
This is my current Spotify playlist (very seldom updated!)
