Outlandish WoW Songs

The songs that appear at the start of the Outlandish podcasts are excellent. Download the podcast and listen, even if you don’t listen to the rest. Funny songs, sung by guys with mixed vocal skills, about warcraft. Its good.

Toon’s Themesong

As I have a few toons, this Blog Azeroth shared topic got me thinking about the tunes I listen to while playing, and how they might relate to my toons. I can’t quite pick just one song to define each toon, as thats like picking a favourite film – which is impossible for me.

My regular characters are:

Arkham the Warlock – Firestarter by the Prodigy is a stable basic and anything fast and furious is playing when Arkham goes farming. I might not use fire, but having 1100+ shadow damage means things die quickly. Sometimes old school grunge is cool too with Nirvana leading the list.

Diamon the Tankadin – Ramstien gets a lot of play, its got lots of base and also pretty quick. Classical also gets a good spin, with Motzart being a really popular choice, but thats only during instances that are easy. The soundtrack from the film Judgement Night also gets a play; and often I can’t go past Audioslave for solo grinds.

Quendalon the Cat – Song 2 by Blur defines Q as a cat. The bouncy nature, speed, stealth, and raw damage output is just brutal. And because she has to get right up close you can almost see the whites of their eyes when they die. Groove Armada, Jamiroquai (which would be a great Cat Druid name), Regurgitator, and Portishead are good too.

Then we have the also-rans:

Malitia the Rogue, Yiera the Shadow priest, Casserole the Druid, Rill the Warrior who all suffer under the tyranny of my mix list: the Pixies to Sonic Youth, Breeders to PJ Harvey, St Germain to Thievery Corporation.

I see a theme – can’t choose music and can’t choose a single character…

Threat Machine

In a tradition started by some very devoted bloggers out there, here is my spoof on a song ala Warcraft. I chose to butcher James Brown’s Sex Machine (YouTube of the original). And folks, believe me when I say I’m saving you from a recorded version; as my singing voice is terrible.

Its a pretty simple song with a lot of repetition, so safe from total discordant destruction at my hands. I’m sorry James.

Threat Machine

Guildies, I’m ready to step up and do my thing (yeah go ahead!)
