Music selections whilst playing, Gentlemen?
Hey all, Oliph here.

So, once again, gonna place up a thought-provoking topic, as I like to see how other people do things. So, what kind of music do you listen to while you run around the Fortress?

Do you listen to oldies? To songs from other games, and if so, ones from your youth for Nostalgia's sake? Do you listen to the game's official soundtrack, since except for the start menu & class selection, there isn't any real BGM (not counting victory/loss jingles).

Personally, I try to find class-suited songs from various sources.

For instance, I find the jazzy tunes of "Death Chamber" from Sonic Adventure 2 Battle both nostalgic and strangely fitting for the Spy. Seems like he'd need a good jam.

Another example could be "Kickstart my heart" or "Running through the 90's" for the scout. He needs something with a quick beat, or perhaps something you could cruise to.

I'd love to hear from you all, I got some good responses with my Ironic Drops topic. Anyhow, let's see what tunes you groove to.

when i do listen to my music while playing its really throwing everything in my library at the tf2 wall but i have it down to more or less of a theory for sniper and spy music that has female vocals or more instrumental then anything. for soldier,demo, & heavy i love listening to my rock selection (bullet for my valentine, 3 days grace, 3 doors down, system of a down) i particularly like your betrayal from BFMV while playing heavy on any payload map trust me when it gets to the "you were told to run away part" and your heavy riding the cart mowing down the other team you will know what a murder boner feels like (spoiler; bucking awesome). as for engi, scout & demo i like breaking benjamin more then anything especially their better tracks like unknown soldier, diary of jane & had enough this song absolutely amps me when i got a g. launcher or scatter gun in my hands. also this gets a mention i love listening to the album from deus ex: human revolution as any class especially the opening theme icarus, i could play 4 hours with just that song playing.

Depends on my mood but I do love a bit of Detroit Techno (Jeff Mills, Hawtin) playing away in the background.

Movies OST's sometimes make it in as well - Die Hard, Sunshine - that sort of thing.
With balanced headphones.

Brian Culbertson --> definitely, the fast ones.

Very nice. I couldn't help myself from playing the Borderlands 1 Theme: Ain't No Rest for the Wicked while playing sniper. Of course, I prefer the huntsman, but perhaps I shall try to craft an Awper Hand. 1 in 6 chance, bring it, eh?

Also, kudos to you all for providing links! That's going above and beyond the norm. Every one of you deserves a medal!

I really don't listen to any music while playing the game but I always wondered how people are able to do it. I use my earbuds so I can hear the subtle sounds of the game, i.e. a spy de-cloaking so I know if I'm about to be back stabbed or if I'm playing on 2fort I can hear enemy players coming thru the sewers even though I can't see them, etc. I think it's great people can listen to music while playing but it would be too much of a distraction to me.
