    I'm kind of disappointed with the music in Civilization VI so far. I'm opening this thread to hear about music suggestions for the game, especially civilization specific ones.

    My current game is with Scythia. I just looked at youtube and on a Scythian topic I found Celtic music that sounded better:


    Please share any suggestions you may have to play while playing Civilization, it doesn't have to be Scythian.

    If you really want some historical authenticity especially regarding warfare, there's a music choice you could pick for Arabia in the modern era (though it's debatable based on geography vs. culture vs. migration whether Arabia or Sumeria would be more appropriate.): http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/story?id=1974794

    Music from Ancient Rome, I heard the music used in Civ 6 in it too:

    It would be inevitable someone would sing "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" when this is played.

    Here are some more civ-specific music suggestions:

    "Battle Hymn of the Republic" for the United States
    "Rule Britannia!" for England
    "Thikriati; Hijaz Maqam" for Arabia

    If there's going to be a Canada civ, then "Maple Leaf Forever" should be included.

    Ugh, American patriotic music is the worst. :( I hope they stick with folk music, on which note if we get more American music I hope to see "Down in the River to Pray."

    "Lavender's Blue" would be a nice addition for England.

    Since we don't exactly have a wealth of ancient Celtic music, I expect that when the Celts are inevitably added they'll draw on Irish folk music; I'd advocate "Follow Me Up to Carlow" or "The Minstrel Boy." Preferably the latter, but that's the Trekkie in my talking. ;)

    Arirang for Korea, but Sujecheon for Queen Seondeok (Silla banquet theme), or Yeomillak for Sejong (composed by Sejong himself). I'll be curious to see if the composers can get the traditional Korean instruments in--I have doubts, given that they kind of skimped on that in V, but here's hoping!

    For Winston Churchill: Land of Hope and Glory (sung by Churchill after WWII ended in victory for the Allied forces).

    Since Greece only has one theme for both leaders (correct me if I'm wrong), I would say that a more general theme would be better for Korea. So yeah, Arirang I guess.

    I doubt they would allow two Korean leaders; it's more likely to be one; hence the leader-specific suggestions also.

    Red Army Chorus for Russia. Though the Russia Atomic Era theme already in game is AMAZING. My one complaint is after playing a full game as Australia, if I never hear Waltzing Matilda again, I will die happy, lol. Put in some Men at Work and INXS. Maybe some Midnight Oil if you go with Communism. AC/DC if you go to war. "Hells Bells" if you take on a larger army would be hilarious. "Thunderstruck" for nukes.

    Well, for Portugal, if had one suggestion, it would certainly be Zeca Afonso, Grândola, Vila Morena

    For America in the Medieval Era it would be great to hear a lute arrangement of John Philip Sousa.

    I've actually made several playlists of ambient music for various civilizations. I just kind of put them together casually, so some of them may be more complete than others. FYI, the first track in each playlist is that civ's Civ6 theme, just because. I'm open to suggestions for new things to add as well. Let me know what you think!

    Blocked? That's not good. Which ones are blocked? All of the videos appear playable in the USA.

    Interesting. Those are all clips from various soundtrack albums that YouTube auto-generates in the US. The affected clips are as follows:

    2. Battle Cry of Freedom (The Civil War)
    3. Battle Hymn of the Republic (The Civil War)
    4. Ashokan Farewell (The Civil War)
    6. Home Sweet Home (Gettysburg)
    7. Kingdom Coming (The Civil War)
    10. Dixie/Bonnie Blue Flag (The Civil War)
    11. Welcome Home/Old 1812 (Gettybsurg)
    12. Yankee Doodle (Gettysburg)
    17. The Courier (Last of the Mohicans)
    19. Promentory (Last of the Mohicans)
