Recently I was having a discussion with a friend who is an old time gamer like myself and we both where saying that when playing solo we listen to music in the background.

 

personally I find this does help my performance and makes me try to time my attacks and special moves around the rhythm or lyrics

 

For me I always perform better with a some rocking beats

 

For jets I need aggressive high tempo high energy heist music

 

You simply cannot go wrong with Roy Budd, the British Lalo Shriffin

 

 

 

 

For more sedate flying at lower tiers I tend to play more relaxed music

 

 

I went from 53% to 59% purely based on having a good soundtrack and there are many more

 

What music do you listen to to help you in the skies?

Nope, they were too cheerful for an angry kid with an electric guitar and an attitude I was back then :-) I needed a Babylon to burn, to hear the guns of Brixton, Spanish bombs falling, that kinda stuff.

Love most of those choices :) Used to do "In a rut" with my long term band, Mum bought me the Rezillos first album for Christmas, (and then probably regretted it) and Never Mind The Bollocks was one of the the defining albums (along with The Stranglers Black and White, The Damned's MGE, Joy Division etc)

Never mind, tried to link a few but didn't work.

 

Anyway, The 1000 Homo DJ's CD is great to have on repeat while playing, Or something by the Butthole Surfers.

Actually, the links worked even if you hadn't used the YT link "tool" in the menu when composing your post.



It had been a while since I'd listened to the Butthole Surfers and 1000 Homo DJs was entirely new to me.  Cheers for those!

You wouldn't know from the selections above, but for the most part I listen to current music rather than old favourites.  So, right now, for instance, this is getting a spin or two.

If you want to sample one track, I suggest the appositely titled 'Ragequitted'.

Kinlaw's album 'The Tipping Scale' is impressing me this morning, not a million miles from Imogen Heap in feel.

This morning's album choice is dark, atmospheric and "folky" in the modern sense of the term (which means "intimate" more than it does bearded guys in shorts singing with a finger in their ear).

Indigo Sparke - Echo (https://indigosparke....com/album/echo)
