It's not so much 'music' as it is 'porn'.

Sweet!

You were into Outland right? Have you heard anything about that soundtrack being released. I haven't been able to find it anywhere, even the artist's own site.

Throw another vote in for videogame music.

I started with Final Fantasy, then branched out to other J-games, and right now I have a bunch of random albums from Japan that have random J-pop songs that I would never, EVER be caught dead listening to. But when I'm driving home from work, and one of those tracks comes up... I let it play... and sometimes... sing along...

I will listen to any of my music anywhere in front of anyone, if they don't like it they can go f themselves. As far as "embarrasing" music, on my iPhone I have:

Toxic by Britney Spears
Several Lady Gaga songs
The Wicked (musical) soundtrack
A ton of Alanis Morisette

It seems to me that a lot of Western games use music in a similar way that movies use orchestrated movie scores. It's more to edge the player along emotionally, and create mood. Where as in Japanese games, the music feels more like a series of songs, which to me, not only sticks out more, but actualy gets me more into the game. It's almost like your actions on screen are a music video for the song that's playing, where as in the Western games, they seem to try to emulate film scores.

My most emabarrasing song (for my lady) on my iPhone is "You Make My Dreams" by Hall and Oates. I put it on when stop at red lights and do a ridiculous dance to embarrass her. I think it's hilarious. She just hits me in the arm usually.

I have not, but you're right, the music in that game was awesome! Especially the boss music....amazing stuff.

I don't really mind the emulation of movie scores, but I'm not sure I entirely agree. I think that music is more often put to the same use in eastern games - particularly drama/action oriented games.

I always put on "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by The Darkness and belt it out in my brilliant falsetto to embarrass my wife.

JRPGS in particular take after the movie style soundtrack.

You should bring that back. Women secretly love it when we embarrass them.

Awesome indeed, especially because there was a time it was unclear if they would even get to finish this current season.

I'd say that the album which least appeals to my friends would be Throw Down Your Heart by Bella Fleck....Not many people appreciate the aboriginal beats and melodies but I consider it to be the closest thing to pure/untainted musical expression.

Many of the musicians on the album are simple African villagers who were given a once in a lifetime chance to record songs they hold dearly so obviously they aren't set on appeasing the masses/modifying their music in hopes of stardom....One tribe (Bushmen/- San People) was virtually cutoff from outside influences other than a small town nearby where they sold bovine, their song is very interesting to listen too...The rhythm is super intricate.

Yeah I kinda followed that in the news and was rooting it for them to pick it back up.

Bella Fleck is absolutely amazing. I know him mostly from his work with DMB, but I have heard some of his stuff with the Flecktones also.

Imma have to check this album out ASAP.

Yeah, I guess like everything else, it just comes down to taste. I really enjoy the music in games like Mass Effect, Uncharted and Oblivion while I'm playing it, but once the game is over, the music never resonates with me, and I forget it. Whereas with a game like Nier, and now Xenoblade, I remember the music vividly from almost every area of the game, and I know I'll never forget it.

There's an album where he plays pieces by Bach. I think it's called Perpetual Motion. Great stuff.

I think I have heard that before. I'll have to check that one out again though.

If you have Netflix then check out the documentary for the album called Throw Down Your Heart....Almost all of the songs are on it and you get to see how he records them and the musicians.

It's almost mind boggling how well Bella can improvise on the spot. When he meets Ananya (exceptional finger pianist) he gets his banjo out and then immediately starts improvising to what Ananya is playing and it sounds amazing.

Classical music, not because I am embarrassed but because when I am by myself I like to relax....and master-debate.

Moonsorrow is one of the best bands ever. I'm not scared of my Metal-ness, though if my kids are around, I'll stop playing the Amon Amarth, Dark Tranquility, Children of Bodom, At the Gates, Wintersun, etc for Iron Maiden or Skid Row or Megadeth or GnR, or I'll just put on the Hair Metal station on satellite radio if there is a party.

I realized I didn't really answer the topic:

When I am completely alone, it's Chopin all the way.
