Word of a woman that knows...

The Hunter's Mark today asked what music do you listen to while playing WoW, if any? I've been asking guildies this for a while now, some to the point they want to kill me, I think (Hey, that has to be the reason they drag my undergeared butt into Heroics).

Anyways, as my guild mates know, I'm largely into older music, most of which is older than I am. Fleetwood Mac, I have too many favorites to name. Queen, John Mellencamp (or John Cougar or John Cougar Mellencamp), Madonna, GNR, Def Leppard, Journey, and April Wine.

I also prefer some more modern music, heck, my hunter theme song is an Inkubus Sukkubus song! And I will go into listening kicks, listen to one band back to back until I tire of it, then swap out to another one. I recently went and bought a Journey album because that was what I was craving. If they'd had the right John Mellencamp in stock, I would have gotten that too, but they didn't.

Music for Raids and Instances? Easy for me, since my guild is not using Vent at this time. It would be a mix of GNR, Def Leppard, Inkubus Sukkubus, and April Wine, if I had the brains to mix a cd. My favorite 3 songs, one from each of the older bands... GNR - Sweet Child O' Mine. Def Lepard - Love Bites. April Wine - Sign of the Gypsy Queen. All three can be found easily on youtube.

Sweet Child
Love Bites
Gypsy Queen

And I was kind enough to track down the studio made video from Youtube. Some of the live versions just aren't as good. If you want to try and prove me wrong, feel free, but I've listened to most the live stuff too.

For just general running around doing dailies and chatting with guildies? Madonna, FWM, Savage Garden, Jewel. More mellow things. I don't need my blood pounding while I'm doing dailies, but it does keep my mind occupied. And my guy will stare over at me if I start singing to whatever I'm listening to. I don't even realize I do it until he's staring at me. And listening to the game and music through headphones... well.. hehe.

I know my play-list is largely inspired by my mother and what she listened to while I was growing up. I grew up with Fleetwood Mac, April Wine, REO Speedwagon, and Mellencamp as part of my daily life, which means its part of my memories.

Well, that's my music, what's yours?


  1. Journey is awesome..but we already had that talk. lol

    In instances I don't listen to music. The other night when I heard J's toon take a hit I whipped around and got the aggro back so that's why I don't.

    When I am running around it varies. Opera, Journey, Gordon Lightfoot..and so on. Sometimes I just like listening to the music in the region I am in.

  2. Your conspiracy theory about us wanting to kill you can't be true because we all die more often than you do. :P

    And I was wondering why you were curious about my music selection. Like I said, I pretty much listen to the in-game music. What can I say, I like the atmosphere of it. Although the other day I was fishing and the mod that I have for it shuts off in-game music to make it easier to hear the bobber sound. So I opened last.fm in my browser and was listening to artists related to Apocalyptica. Some of those songs were very interesting.
