    Boudica and Isabella both have nice diplo tunes. Washington as well, and of course Augustus.

    My fave is Justinian. I really love the drone quality to his music. The happy Celtic music is a close second best.:culture:

    What I mean is almost all leaders have THEIR OWN Diplo music , some just share from others ( Boudica , Churchill ) .Yes , I like Boudica's as well . What about Gilgamesh's .

    FYI: Several of the diplomacy music tracks were adapted from earlier Civ games, including:

    Montezuma - opening menu from Civ 2
    Julius/Augustus - "Augustus Rises" from Civ 2
    Hammurabi - "Hammurabi's Code" from Civ 2
    Bismarck - "Funeral March" from Civ 2

    The Romans' and Bismarck's music were also in Civ1, in the same role; Frederick was the default leader for the Germans and his music remained the same as well.
    The Babylonian theme from Civ1 is now being used for Persia early on.

    Hearing the same music today when playing Civ4 always makes me smile.

    The Music is one of the best parts of Civ. I have tons of them in my Ipod, the ones I like are for

    Greece (Alex, Pericles), England (Elizabeth), France (All), Russia (All, especially Catherine_Late), Germany (Frederick). Rome, Khmer, China, Japan, Korea, India, Maya, Spain, Arabia and Portugal are quite nice. I guess that's most of them. The ones I don't like are Inca, Zulu and Aztecs, they're nonsense.

    Maybe we should have a list of where the music for each leader was from. The list in wiki is so incomplete, like Napoleon - La Marseilles.

    that's because they are the same civilization.. you are confused about the concept. the civs get their own music, not each leader.

    Willem's circus theme is actually good, you know. One I actually consider using sometime in RL. But I really don't know much about the origin of the music. La Marseilles and something classic from Britain (God Save the Queen or Rule Britannia) for Victoria and Churchill. I've heard that the Russian music has a famous origin... (Catherine Late)

    BTW, Kao'chai, where does your name come from? Just curious.

    Good question! where am I?
    I feel sorry for poor Willem, by late game all the other leaders have these grand, sweeping nationalistic songs really full of pride and patriotism and all that

    Willem's wouldn't sound out of place at a Theme Park...

    Still it's fun to listen too I suppose
