So, what is it? Whaddaya listen to while playing?

Me: I'm a bit of a classical nut myself, so one I like is Sergey Prokofiev's overture to Ivan the Terrible (Op. 116), among many other works from him. Other favorites include Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain", and Gustav Holst's "Mars" is pretty much a no-brainer for air combat!

Some work from guys who still have a pulse include the bombastic pieces from Hans Zimmer and John Williams.

If I had the PotC2 soundtrack I'd have Davey Jones'/The Kraken's themesong up whilst shooting down baddies.

Occasionally I put in the soundtrack from Battle of Britain.

Quite a mixture for me. Mostly hard rock such as AC/DC or Led Zeppelin, but what Fw-190 driver's playlist could be complete without Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries?

For me it depends on what I'm flying.
I find that Nightwish, Evanescence and Metallica are best for when I'm flying the ME-109 and FW-190.
Sham 69, the S*x pistols and the Offspring when flying the Wildcat. the Foo fighters or the Rolling stones when I'm in the Hurricane or P-40. Guns n Roses or Queen when I'm in the Spitfire and the Who when I'm in the P-38.
I'm also partial to Joy Division, the Smiths, U2 and The Manic Street Preachers.

I'm kinda early & baroque music buff and I have about 2000 hours of music to choose, so I rarely hear the same thing twice.

Last time I was home & playing -seems so long ago- I took Johann Kuhnau's 1717 cantata "Ihr Himmel jubilirt von oben", which was a blast with all those glorious drums and trumpets.

I listen to the sound of that Jumo engine that is about to blow up. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Can't play if I can't hear my engine. I blew so many of them with the manual pitch even without music. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I play rap songs that talk about their "pimp rides" and "cadillac grills" and all that...

Actually I don't listen to any, I'm not good enough to devote any of my brainpower to acknowledging the fact that music is, in fact, playing and instead just try to keep from spinning out and making a mess of myself all over a mountainside.

Basically my flying is akin to a fat guy sitting on a couch that just kind of slides off and hits the floor because he's just too lazy to do anything about it. Yeah. That's me.

Playing music while playing is alien to me.

While skinning (or attempting to) and mission building I tend to listen to Ennio Morricone. "A Fistful of Film Music" is a great collection of his work but you really can't go wrong with the soundtrack to "the Good the Bad and the Ugly"

If anyone knows the name Clint Bajakian, he's a score writer that (used to?) work for LucasArts. he did filler work on the Star Wars games, but he really shined with the music from a little known LucasArts game called "Outlaws"

He did all the music, and tried to capture the feeling of Morricone's spaghetti western music. The game is very very dated now but was fun 10 years ago. Anyway, if anyone can find the discs, the music is on one of them. You can pop it into a CD player and listen to same damn good reinterpretation of the "Morricone sound"

cool piece to have playin while on the hunt) But i also threw some Mr bungle and Muse in the same folder to spice it up a bit.

Dood, Chopin is the greatest piano composer/player in history! Granted, it's a short history since the piano has only been around for less than 300 years... Abbey Simon, IMO, does a fantastic job with his work.

yeah he certainly was a phenomenal player/composer,he really opened my eye's to how cool and musically intense classical music is. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif( I used to be a metal head! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif).

I'll have to check out some of Abbey's work,I'v got a lot of Claudio Arrau and Idil Biret doing his stuff and they seem to pull it off well,but im always on the lookout for more.
Cheers.

I don't remember where I got it, but in some music package I got the inflight music to Jane's WWII Fighters. I use that or "Ride of the Valkeries" by Wagner. That one never gets old, especially while flying.

When the mossie was released, I downloaded the 633 Sqn theme from Netwings. I tried to convert it from mp3 to wav, but it only gets through the first 25 seconds and then loops to the start. Plays fine all the way through in WMP10 though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Well I actually haven't had the chance to play recently, but when I do it's pretty much whatever I'm listening to anyway, I don't have much classical but a lot of rock, so it's usually that. Right now I'm listening to Orkideahautu by Airut, the chorus is so appropriately perfect if you diving into a Russian formation of bombers with some B-239s. I mean PERFECT.
