A kickbutt music soundtrack when playing Europa Universalis 3.

Like I said, when I’m not talking about politics on here, I use some of my spare time to play PC video games. One game I’ve just acquired and already talked about on here is Europa Universalis 3. Without getting into the review of the game again, consider it a Civilization-type game on steroids. It’s very addictive, and it also has an unbelievable music soundtrack playing while you’re trying to rule and manage your nation (and occasionally try to kick the living tar out of your enemy).

So.. since I’ve never attempted to embed music in a WordPress post, this is a good excuse to try one. This first one is called “Conquistador” – the main theme for the game once you start it up: (these are in MP3 format by the way):

Wicked.

This is one of my favourites during the game which is called “The Battle Of Damascus”:

Ok, so you can now all accuse me of being a computer nerd/geek. I don’t care. 🙂

They sort of remind me of the Lord of The Rings movie soundtrack (which I also bought all the CD’s for), so perhaps that’s why I like the music tracks off of this game so much… it gets me pumped up while I’m playing it 😉

  • There are 21 songs in the EU3 music directory that play throughout the game – all good stuff.

  • It’s funny, actually, the EU2 soundtrack was actually… copyrighted music, as far as I know, tracks from Swedish classical music in the main. But, very beautiful stuff. A lot of Joculatores Upsalienses (Early/Renaissance music group,) Triton Trombones…

    I actually went through the filenames in the EU2 music directory and translated all of the numbers into the proper titles (they are mostly catalogue numbers that can be websearched) so that I could put it all on my ipod categorized.

    I think the single prettiest song is probably “Unser Keiner Lebet Ihm Selber,” by Heinrich Schtz, HSCD831_6.mp3 in the music directory. It was written in the 17th Century as a musical setting to the scriptural passage Romans 14:7, quoted to Schtz by his wife as she was dying of fever at age 24: “For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.”
