Since I have no idea which video game character would be the perfect Santa’s helper, I’m skipping the Creative Christmas challenge for today and replying to an important post instead.
The invaluable halsdoll did me a great honor by choosing me for the Shuffle The Music competition. She’s not only a blogger of great taste and style, but also an incredibly patient person because I let her wait for entire 11 days! It’s time to make up for the shame.
Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog
2. Shuffle your entire music library and talk about the songs that come up
3. Mention the songs as well as the artists
4. Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and let them know
(since my nature is rather unruly, I’ll allow myself to alter the second point: “talk about the songs that come up and which games they fit as a custom soundtrack”)
And here are the songs:
Angelo Badalamenti – Dub Driving
You may call me uncultured swine, but I’ve never liked David Lynch’s film. Perhaps they are too intellectual and artsy for. What I’ve always liked, however, is the work of his court composer, Angelo Badalamenti.
I have good memories with this one and GTA San Andreas, driving a truck outside large urban areas at night. So my guess is that it’s perfect for any driving game, not only the GTA series.
Myrath – Tales of the Sands
The entire album served me well when playing Dune 2000. My suggestion is to use it in any game with desert and/or Middle Eastern theme.
Donis&Kulgrinda – …eisie…

Kyuss – Whitewater
Another piece driving music, this one seems to be a good choice for games like American Truck Simulator or maybe even Mad Max.
Carbon Based Lifeforms – Polyrytmi
Close your eyes, listen to it and imagine the wonderful emptiness of the universe. Then remember to play it when playing any space-themed game, maybe Elite or FTL.
And now, the chosen few:
