    Has anyone heard of Sound Cloud? It's amazing! I was able to put together a list of Jeremy Soule's compositions from Oblivion to Skyrim and beyond. My husband tossed me the headphones last night because he's already sick of listening to the list over and over again lol. Hey! It's great for concentrating.

    Soundcloud, sure. Mixcloud, too. And, one I've plugged before, the music section of the Internet Archive.

    As a follow-on for the Internet Archive, if you find someone you like, here's a way to find out what they have at that site (which, admittedly, can be clumsy to navigate). Here's a French DJ I rather like, as an example
    DJ L'embrouille site:archive.org

    This is the same technique I use to scope bibliographic searches to education sites. The "site:archive.org" ensures the only thing you'll see is stuff at that site. Good hunting.

    PS, this is also a great way to do topic research for writing.

    I've got three sets on soundcloud (here), but as the free version is limited in how much you can upload I'm not using it much. If I were an actual musician and made my own music, I'd probably use it a lot more. :)

    This may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to...

    This is the song London Town, created by Miracle of Sound and inspired by Assassin's Creed Syndicate.



    Actual AC Syndicate gameplay is not like that, but the video captures the spirit and energy of the game very well!

    I just came across this and found it interesting. According to one of the comments it's sung in proto-germanic, which may be inspiring for some odf you - except some parts are in some kind of version of English.

    I've listened to this song for years, and it suddenly occurred to me that this is a pantser's theme song! :D

    This is the song Federkleid, by the fantastic band Faun!



    I have always thought that German is a beautiful language =)

    The first promo-short for the new wow expansion has a really nice song to it. I'm pretty sure even someone who's not into the game and doesn't know anything about it will be able to enjoy this:

    Not sure if this has been posted, but a repeat would not matter since this is some of the most beautiful music in all the world. It was used by the gold medal skating couple at the recent winter Olympics and has inspired many an epic scene in my own mind. I knew the instant it started that it was something special...

    The following bangers have got me through the working morning with speed for a quick write during lunch.

    I rewatched Th Blues Brothers last night. Does that count.

    Is it wrong to want to be Jake Elwood?

    The most beautiful song Das Lied der Ahnen by Oonagh!



    I am getting great feelings and inspiration thanks to that song =)

    Do you know Alina Lesnik already?



    That's a most wonderful cover by Alina of the legendary Bon Jovi song It's my Life, featuring fellow singer A Hero for the World.

    I love Alina Lesnik!
