Battle Bards Episode 11: Oddballs

bardssquaresmallEveryone knows that the Battle Bards are a little odd.  That’s a fact.  So it shouldn’t come as a shock to discover that they’re also into MMO music that’s a little… off the beaten path.  Today’s episode is all about the strange and unusual themes that don’t quite fit in elsewhere — but they’re in good company together!

Episode 11 show notes

  • Introduction (including unknown track from Meridian 59)
  • Spiral Knights: “Lucky Knight”
  • FFXI: “Dash de Chocobo”
  • Defiance: “The Battle of San Francisco”
  • WoW: “Operation Gnomeregan”
  • GW2: “Sunny Glade”
  • SWTOR: “Yesterday’s Jawa”
  • Glitch: “Rainbow Run”
  • Mailbag: Belghast and Ian (here’s the link to his YouTube channel)
  • Outro (Champions Online’s 3rd anniversary song)

    This was my first Battle of the bard and I really enjoyed.

    Summation: “C’était un mélange d”oddness'”

    Most memory inducing track was the FFXI: “Dash de Chocobo” – ..breeding the gold choco in FFVII and racing again and again!
    ( – with sound effects…oh wow, goose bumps!)

    Best track was Defiance, “The Battle of San Francisco” – I thought it odd enough for an MMO to have this as soundtrack…would like to hear the 99ers song now…
