I'm a firm believer that good music can enhance the gaming experience; it helps engage and immerse players into the themes of games whether they're "dripping" with it or merely "pasted on."

Being a big fan of music in general, especially in video game and film scores, I've been able to compile a ton of tracks (in the form of YouTube videos) to complement a good number of games.

When choosing music, I tend to steer away from songs with English lyrics in order to prevent distraction. I make a few exceptions here and there, but you'll find that most tracks are either instrumental or have non-English lyrics.

For the past five years of this beautiful hobby, I've come to be known for always having appropriately thematic background music to play during game sessions and I want to share it all with you guys. Happy listening!

NOTE: The playlists are all continually works in progress, but some are a little more fleshed out than the others. I'm always open for suggestions so let me know!

As mentioned on:

Dice Tower Podcast Ep. #430
(1:21:50)
"It's great...I [use] it all the time!" - Tom Vasel

Rahdo's table review (05:54)
"It's really awesome...I've been using that quite a bit as well to really enhance the ambience of the games we've been playing!" - Richard Ham

Other Music Sources:
Melodice- Site with crowdsourced playlists. Created by user lomero. Most of the playlists have been sourced by yours truly.
Kyur's Background music for board games- A fellow geek's playlists
TableTop Audio- Ambient sounds. Great supplement to music.
Syrinscape- Customizable ambient sounds.

Ways to listen
d10-1 Desktop/laptop browser to go to bartattack's playlists page. (the obvious one; install an ad-blocker OR subscribe to YouTube Red to disable ads)
d10-2 Official YouTube app on mobile device (no background playback capability, and plays ads)
d10-3 Third-party apps that allow background playback: FREEdi (iOS, Android) YTBPlayer (iOS)
d10-4 YouTube.com on Safari (capable of background playback)

Featuring music from various spy movies and TV shows:
Sly Cooper
Team Fortress 2
In Like Flint
Mission Impossible
I Spy
The Pink Panther


The music from the films In Like Flint and Our Man Flint work great with the 60s spy theme of Agents of SMERSH. This playlist could use more tracks. It can get pretty repetitive after awhile.

Featuring music from various 80s synth inspired artists:
Dynatron
Droid Bishop

I used to play my Eclipse or Race for the Galaxy playlists when playing AF, but after finding these great retro synth songs, I feel they are more fitting with AF's retro look. Great stuff.

This one need a lot of work. You'd be surprised by the lack of Belgium renaissance music. Most of it sounds like music from its neighboring countries anyway. Maybe I should go for more generic music that fits the time period.

NEEDS WORK

Playlist 1

Carcassonne was my gateway into modern board gaming, so naturally it was the first playlist I put together. I found the music they play at the France pavillion area at Disney World's Epcot to fit with Carcassonne's light and friendly(subjective) gameplay. It may not fit the time period, but it makes for an enjoyable and pleasant background music.

I'll admit, once it starts playing Frere Jacque, it gets a tad too childish sounding.

For an alternative playlist with medieval music check out:

The problem with this playlist is that we used to play a lot of Castles of Burgundy and Troyes, so the music got tiresome and repetitive. Maybe it just needs new tracks to keep it fresh.
