I think this is just your generic, found on every forum, what are you listening to now thread, doesn't have to be while gaming.

On that topic though, depending on game type, I generally don't listen to any music at all (FPS, anything where sound is vital to success), or, if sound and music are really just additional "ear candy", I often turn them off completely, and listen to Deutschlandradio instead. Also depends on time of day/what's on the radio.


Now, back to what we're listening to right now:

I think I asked this already but why do you assume that everyone listens to music while playing a game? I thinkit must be a total media experience that is for the younger players rather than us old guys. I sometimes have the tv on without sound but that is it. I do not even have music on that comes with the games.

yep, 40 year olds are considered young, right?

Any progressive music fans here? Yes, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Genesis, King Crimson, Rush, Transatlantic, Renaissance, and Spock's Beard for starters. I've always loved this sophisticated, multi-dimensional, neo-classical music. In fact, when I'm not playing a good game like John Tiller's Dien Bien Phu and WW2 Campaign Series, I'm sometimes subbing on keyboards for a Yes tribute band called Ascension.

I also love a good soundtrack. I think the music from Patton, Blade Runner, Lord of the Rings, Henry V, Space Odyssey, Gladiator,and the Right Stuff are some of the better ones that come to mind. Speaking of which, it's interesting to note that progressive music has much in common with a good film score in that both genres tend to be very visual music. Also, progressive music often uses themes from fantasy, science fiction, and history, rather than overdoing the usual boy lusting after girl routine. lol

Prog rock on!

ceremonial castings - come forth damnation

Goes well with theories on deliberative democracy in the EU, particularly the more apologetic ones - feel free to feel democratically represented and actively participating in the political process because someone else might, or might not have made an argument that covered your pov in a discussion you never heard about, and if you did, wouldn't have the means to understand.

I agree with you totally Hard Sarge.  Pink Floyd's 'When the Tigers Broke Free' is an awesome piece of music, both musically and lyrically.  Definitely a piece of music for the contemplative and introspective frame of mind:

It was just before dawn
One miserable morning in black 'forty four.
When the forward commander
Was told to sit tight
When he asked that his men be withdrawn.
And the Generals gave thanks
As the other ranks held back The enemy tanks for a while.
And the Anzio bridgehead
Was held for the price
Of a few hundred ordinary lives.

And kind old King George
Sent Mother a note
When he heard that father was gone.
It was, I recall,
In the form of a scroll,
With gold leaf and all.
And I found it one day
In a drawer of old photographs, hidden away.
And my eyes still grow damp to remember
His Majesty signed
With his own rubber stamp.

It was dark all around.
There was frost in the ground
When the tigers broke free.
And no one survived
From the Royal Fusiliers Company C.
They were all left behind,
Most of them dead,
The rest of them dying.
And that's how the High Command
Took my daddy from me.

Any progressive music fans here? ... Genesis ...


Hard core Genesis fan (pre-pop/pre-3 eras... complete crap from about '79 on). Only saw them in concert once. Never heard of them prior, but I was talked into the $2.75 concert by a friend and radio ads about lots of lasers. Ended up being the best concert I ever saw, in our city's smallest non-alcohol/performance venue (about 3,000 seats), which wasn't even sold out to boot! They were the only prog rock band I ever got into though (Although, I did enjoy a long nap at a Tangerine Dream concert once *grin*).

And now for something not so completely different. I saw this gif elsewhere and thought immediately of this thread. It could be considered bad taste by many, but seems so appropriate in this thread in this forum, on this site...

E, I agree with you concerning Genesis.  The Peter Gabriel era band was fantastic.  The music was magical, haunting, melodic, sophisticated, and mystical.  The 'Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' and 'Selling England by the Pound' are two of the best albums ever.  There will never be another band like that.  Concerning the latter Phil Collins era band, they had their moments (like the great songs 'Mad Man Moon' and 'Keep it Dark'), but their more commercially oriented sound was a far cry (most of the time) from the Peter Gabriel days.

I'd be listening to a lot more military music if I didn't have such an aversion to brass music (a leftover from my childhood, my grandfather was rather too fond of his Ernst Mosch, and that left its mark...)

If it's the one in Dessau, it's where my uncle worked until it was destroyed by US bombing. I think he was transferred to Aschaffenburg afterwards.

I found the song on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvFI2bNoEM4
