Arcane Fun Fridays–More Music to Code By

Last week I listed a few of my favorite soundtracks to program to. This week I’d like to present a few more. These aren’t soundtracks exactly, but sure do sound like them. Very fast paced, orchestral pieces that sound like they were taken right from an action/adventure movie.

Unlike some movie soundtracks, which have a mix of both fast paced and slower interlude style music, there’s not a slow song in the bunch. Every track is fast paced adrenaline pumping code inducing music.

It’s not a single album but a series, called “Position Music”. Right now I have Volumes 1-4, there’s a fifth one of Christmas music that’s on my wish list, it’s totally unlike any holiday album you ever listened to. So without further comment here’s the list, hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Arcane Fun Fridays–Music to Code By

I love music, it’s great to listen to when I read or program. I do find music with a lot of lyrics distracting when I’m trying to concentrate, thus action/adventure soundtracks are one of my favorite genera’s. Some surprisingly good music can be found from video game soundtracks. I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you.

Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 2 – This is an awesome score. I love the game, and love the music even more. It’s fast paced and will really keep your energy flowing.

Call of Duty – Black Ops – Another great game, and another great soundtrack.

Army of Two – After finding the Call of Duty soundtracks, I began to explore the soundtracks from other video games. This is the first one that I thought was in the same class as the Call of Duty games. Good stuff.
