I don't have a song for gaming in general. But this is my pump up song on Saturday at GenCon when the energy is at low ebb...



Pretty much the entirety of "Charge!!" works.

Also, a friend shared this story with me, and I was like, "yep, that seems legit, that is real to my experience": https://thehardtimes.net/sponsored/child-drops-dad-off-at-aq...

It depends on the game. I usually have a "theme song" for my campaigns (even one-offs) to help set the mood. I don't actually play this at the commencement of each session. But maybe I should and roll some credits across a screen...

The theme song for the recently wrapped up Shadowrun: Anarchy - Alternate Ruleset game:

And the theme song for an upcoming Delta Green game:

This movie is half of why I love fantasy. We wore out the VHS tape as kids, and I still think the music is amazing, even if it's 80's synthtastic. It makes me want to bulk up, get a sword, and battle the evil Kadar:

On the way to gaming, I listen to WGUC a local classical music station. Yeah, like over-the-air radio.

It's a strange thing... we've never used any music for RPGs. I always think about trying it and never do.

We used to refer to role-playing as 'The Game.' We were also WWE fans.

Usually good:

Anything else from the same album is also good.

Anything from the Metal Knight album by the late Sir Christopher Lee.

For sci-fi, anything by Tangerine Dream or Mike Oldfield works.

Depends on the session. When I'm in Waterdeep, I listen to "Waterdeep, City of Splendors" from the Neverwinter Nights soundtrack. When I'm working on my conversion of the Star Wars d20 to 5E I listen to the soundtracks from the first six Star Wars movies (still need to get Episodes VII and VIII, and I'll be sure to get IX's when it drops). Thanks to GOG and their bonus soundtracks I have music for just about anything.

This record and maybe some Nazareth like She's only a broken down angel or something.

But this record. Reminds me of Moorcock's Brass series for some reason, probably just juxtaposition.
