    I like to turn on Winamp and listen to internet radio. Usually, I go with some classical music--it helps me figure out how to destroy the enemy.

    No, I leave the annoying Civ music on... Though, I've always been afraid that Winamp would slow Civ down too much...

    Whatever is on the radio station I listen to at the time. If they have some crappy show on, I listen to the Civ 3 music or Winamp.

    I just listen to the ingame music. There are some good tracks buried in there ;). I would listen to Winamp, but it lags my (very old) computer badly, even though I am using Winamp 2.8 (coz the others are just too slow).

    Anything but the in-game music!

    In praxis, metal and the like, some folksy music, some rock.

    Always found that sad tunes goes well to apocalyptic Modern wars ...

    I reccommend for you guys to try Winamp 5, it's very light on the system...
    I often listen to my regular playlist, which includes a bit of rock (mainly hard rock) and some oldies (mainly beatles) but mostly it contains metal.
    Main groups on the playlist:
    Avantasia
    Blind Guardian
    Demons & Wizards
    Cream Theater
    Edguy
    Evergrey
    Gamma Ray
    Grave Digger (VERY VERY GOOD FOR CONQUERING ENEMIES =P)
    Hammerfall
    Iced Earth (The Glorious Burden titles are also very good for wartime, aside from them being pure genious)
    Iron Maiden
    Kamelot
    Metallica
    Nevermore
    Nightwish
    Opeth
    Rammstein
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Sonata Arctica

    :goodjob:

    :goodjob: We should talk about this more, I have
    quite a bit of Cohen and some of his stuff sang in
    French by G. Allwright. Enya's great for turbulent flights.

    I was completely faithful to the Firaxis soundtrack up until recently, now it's winamp and if you read my profile you'll
    notice that I enjoy ecclectic music. This is everything from
    experimental noise music to folky accordian stuff, but never
    polka (sorry germany/poland). Everything else has it's
    time and place but the more avante garde the better.

    I listen to the in-game music most of the time, but sometimes I'll listen to any of the below:

    -------------------
    Chris Rice
    Ray Boltz
    Michael W.Smith
    Steven Curtis Chapman
    Jackson College of Ministries' Choir
    Apostolic Bible Institute's choir
    Texas Bible College's choir
    E. J Schambeau

    ----

    Those are the main ones. If I get in industrial wars, I'll listen to Civil War music by Bobby Horton. :D

    Either Winamp or CDs. Could be most anything (jazz, classic rock, classical) that isn't too quiet or too distracting. A few favorites for Civ include

    Cusco -- nearly anything but Apurimac I/II/III (music of the Andes and ancient America) or Ancient Journeys: A Vision of the New World are particulaly good with Civ.

    Enya and lots of other Celtic music is good.

    Craig Chaquico is good (upbeat acoustic guitar)

    Mannheim Steamroller, especially Saving the Wildlife or Yellowstone.

    Tangerine Dream, nearly anything works for me

    Well, I always listen to my Winamp playlist (here it is ), but, whenever there's a battle and wheter you speak Russian or not, there's nothing like the Red Army Choir... :D

    Pretty much any dark or heavy classical music, a la Dies Irae (esp. Mozart and Verdi, of course) O Fortuna, Totentanz, Revolutionary Etude, for example -- those are fairly appropriate for war. I like Chopin's Funeral March, too, for when I'm finishing off my enemies.

    Otherwise, there's nothing better than a little death metal to accompany my hordes on their paths of mayhem and destruction. :evil:
