As promised, today I share the WoW playlist I submitted to The Godmother’s contest.
Blood has been shed…sacrifices made. It’s not my “ultimate” soundtrack, but it would definitely be a 60 minute Greatest Hits.
Side A: War
1. Three Doors Down: Citizen Soldier (3:35)
I’ve always liked this song and quite often I picture our group of heroes as they get ready at the start of an instance or just inside one of the cities, ready to defend it. So PvE or PvP, this track has you covered and makes a great opening song.
2. The Rasmus: In The Shadows (3:40)
Death Knights, Warlocks, Shadow Priests, and Rogues. Good times. Plus, it’s just one of those peppy tracks that seem to spatter this list for a good fight. If you’re building off the first track, of standing at the ready…I would say as soon as this song hits, the enemy is arriving.
3. Alter Bridge: Metalingus (Edge Edit) (4:53)
I listen to this song at almost any time. You can’t help but get geared up for a fight and the lyrics work incredibly well for the game. As you might guess, this defines the ups and downs as the fight gets into full swing.
4. Trans Siberian Orchestra: Christmas Eve/Sarajevo (3:42)
Whether you’re traversing snow covered lands, or throwing down sword and spell, this track does the job. Great for Winter Veil too. As the battle wages on, we’re building towards the pinnacle of the fight.
5. Liepaja Symphonic Orchestra feat Melo-M: The Final Countdown (5:14)
For Warcrafting, this does it for me just a bit more than the classic Europe version. I really like this in Northrend, Jungles, and most instances. Indeed, the battle is coming to a close.
6. Seether: Tonight (3:34)
This is the guild chat anthem. From conquering new content, to new recruits and everything between. Doesn’t matter which of my guilds we’re talking about either. At this point, the army is celebrating victory.
7. Dana Lyons: Cows With Guns (5:06)
Sometimes you want lighthearted. When I’m playing Oddfodder, everything about him is comedy. I’d love to say this is a tribute to the Tauren, but it’s really just my Tauren Hunter. This concludes the day of battle as a bard picks up his guitar to share a lighthearted tale prior to the following day’s feast of victory.
Run time: 30:00
Side B (Rarities)
1. Stan Bush: The Touch (3:52)
This is my go to song in battlegrounds, though Warsong Gulch is my absolute favourite place to listen to it. Something about bursting through the gates as those opening notes play on in the background…
2. Jay-Z & Linkin Park: Numb/Encore (3:34)
This is another one of those tracks that just gets me going. Also might be accurate for PvP. You get ganked numb, but keep going back for more.
3. Arthur Brown: Fire (2:48)
Mount Hyjal, Firelands, anything involving Deathwing. You get the idea. It’s also a great Mage/Warlock track.
4. Heart: Magic Man (5:28)
Speaking of Mages, if I’m playing one then I’m popping this classic on. It was great for Shadowfang Keep, or at the very least Archmage Arugal pre-Cataclysm.
5. Randy Newman: You’ve Got A Friend In Me (2:05)
Questing with Tumunzahar this is pretty much a pre-requisite. Even when I’m healing sometimes. As I’ve said before, this song captures what the Tumunzahar character is all about. It’s quickly becoming the same for Saintvache as well.
6. Elton John feat. Lebo M and Carmen Twillie: The Circle of Life (3:48)
This is one of my travel songs. Or even for farming. It’s a nice way to relax and seems to be applicable no matter what part of Azeroth I find myself in.
7. Michael Gray: Boom De Yada WoW (2:37)
This is my other travel song. It was brilliantly done and I smile every time I listen to it. I can’t imagine my World of Warcraft soundtrack without it.
8. Garth Brooks: Standing Outside The Fire (3:55)
Just listen to the words when you’re stuck on that Tier boss or any other challenge time in the game. All the inspiration and more that you’ll need.
9. Jen Titus: O Death (2:04)
Corpse runs would be the most fitting. But, sometimes this song comes out in places like Karazhan, Black Temple or any of the Icecrown 5-mans. Also great for setting the tone as a Forsaken, a Death Knight, or any other dark character. It also seemed like a fitting way to end this compilation.
Run Time: 29:55
Hope you enjoyed it,
