Lets hear it!
the Original Soundtracks of Lord of the Ring 1,2 and 3. And the Kill Bill OST.
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...
Power metal for the most part.
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:
Demons & Wizards
Grave Digger (VERY VERY GOOD FOR CONQUERING ENEMIES =P)
Iced Earth (The Glorious Burden titles are also very good for wartime, aside from them being pure genious)
Red Hot Chili Peppers
I turn on WinAmp. My playlist contains...
- Bill Whelan (Riverdance)
- Enya (love her )
- Eric Levi (Era)
- The LotR soundtracks, about 55 songs, Howard Shore
- Leonard Cohen, sung by him and others
- Numerous smaller including ABBA, Arja Saijonmaa, Elton John, Ennio Morricone, Grieg, Holst, Madonna, Mike Oldfield, Monty Python, Sarah Brightman, Shania Twain and Secret Garden +++
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:
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.
I usually listen to Stonerrock when playing Civ:
Mushroom River Band
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
Wagner - Ride of the Valkyries
Mozart - Ode to Joy
Strauss - The Blue Danube
Tchaikovsky - Swan Lake
Tchaikovsky - Waltz of the Flowers
I like to listen to Pink Floyd, Tenacious D, The Vines, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Linkin Park
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...
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.
