Planning a session of this game for the weekend where we plan to be playing this and only this game, maybe a short filler or so as well.

And to heighten the atmosphere I thought about having music in the background.

But I can't think of any music that would be fitting, remember it cant be too distracting either.

Any good suggestions? Have you played this game with music if so what kind of music?

Use the music from the iOS or Android Pandemic app. That should fit the setting :-).

Good idea!
Do you know if it is on spotify or readily available somewhere?

I played while listening to PS1 RPG music soundtracks, specifically Final Fantasy and other Square games. Some of the boss themes and battle music really upped the tension when facing potential outbreaks or flipping new epidemics.

Unfortunately, my playlist is cobbled together from multiple soundtracks, so it is not really something easy to share. This is also probably highly personal taste, as I played JRPGs like crazy 15 years ago and used the music to study in college.

I cannot get the theme music to the original Plants vs Zombies video game out of my head for this game. It is mildly fitting and the endless waves of diseases and CoDa victims fit well with it

Great playlist! But it is designed for the normal Pandemic game. For Legacy Pandemic, maybe something like this from the Mission Impossible tv series should be added to reflect the irreversibility of the Legacy game.

This may sound a bit elaborate, but fwiw...We have two playlists - one for before the second epidemic, and one for after. Both work fine shuffled.

Early game:

The Knick Soundtrack (Cliff Martinez)
Contagion Soundtrack (which is also Cliff Martinez)
Gone Girl Soundtrack (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross)
Invincible - Two Steps from Hell (Thomas J. Bergersen and Nick Phoenix)

Mid-late game:

Battlefield 4 Soundtrack (Johan Skugge, Jukka Rintamaki)
Battlefield 4 Premium Soundtrack (Johan Skugge, Jukka Rintamaki)

My group routinely mocks me for my game playlists, but trust me - no one is laughing when the Battlefield 4 Stutter Theme kicks in. It's brutal.

This youtube playlist:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxaKuX4WcCQiC0HqfSJsI...

Combined with the Knick soundtrack:
https://play.google.com/music/listen?u=0#/album/Bbmdkug26ge5...

If you play them both at the same time in different tabs, you have the constant intense music, cut with virus news reports every 4 minutes.

I have to admit, I literally just made this and haven't tried it out. Maybe it'll be super distracting, but thought it might work. I made it because we're starting our Pandemic Legacy campaign tonight!

Thanks for the inspiration, David. Here are the two playlists I compiled to be played simultaneously.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbj8DTUZmI7Yyslu2fzdO...
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbj8DTUZmI7YRzrkrqtK-...

I tried using this soundtrack while playing last night. 15 minutes in, my wife made me turn it off because it was too tense for her.

Please put some use to this since it looks like I won't be able to.
