    A simple question: which opening menu music do you like the most? I voted for Warlords.

    Vanilla (Baba Yetu) is by far the best. It's the one I use.

    Baba Yetu by a mile. I saw some orchestra/choir doing it on YouTube with the wonder movies playing in the background and it nearly brought a tear to my eye...

    I heard there was a way to change the main screen music back to Baba Yetu in BtS but I haven't spotted how to do it yet :(

    Go to the options screen during a game, and look around, there should be an option to change the opening screen...choose "Civilization 4" instead of Warlords or Beyond the Storm.

    Baba Yetu. BtS menu music is really poor.

    Hmm... Interesting results! I thought the warlords al nadda would be more popular. And only two votes for BtS?!:eek: I thought it was great... But of course, all of the three songs are great.:goodjob:

    I personally think the BTS music is lame. I don't like the menu either.

    Did you know...

    The theme song of Civilization 4, Baba Yetu, is actually "Our Lord's Prayer" spoken in Swahili. Yes, Swahili language of the Eastern Africa origin, a place more commonly known as "The Cradle of Life". If you don't know, the prayer is referenced from Christian Bible Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4.

    It may have been mentioned elsehwere, but I thought it bears repeating in this thread.

    I like warlords.

    If I want to hear the Lion King theme, I'd watch the movie. So no Baba Yetu :)

    I only have the original and Warlords so I have never listened to the Beyond the Sword menu music. Is there a place I can download it or just listen to it online?
