Have you ever found yourself wanting a metric ton of DAI music? Have you ever thought to yourself, aw man, DAI’s soundtrack was 15 hours shorter than I wanted it to be? If that sounds like you, then this is a link for you.
I’ve ripped all the music from this game - that is, all the ambient snippets of music that you hear while running around in the world, and all the music that happens in cutscenes - and it turns out there’s 16 hours (1.6 gigs) of it.
glue stick, magazine scraps, stickers, glitter, etc.
1. Decide your purpose.
What’s it for? Who’s it for? Will you have a theme? What kinda music/genres fit with that theme?
2. Compile the tracks into a playlist on iTunes.
FILE > NEW > PLAYLIST
Here are sum tipz for compiling your tracklist:
I like to vary old + new music, genres, moods, etc.
To make it flow, I like to place the songs in an order where each song somehow compliments or contrasts the previous track.
Include a good mix of familiar tracks and new finds.
Live versions of familiar songs are always a good idea.
DO NOT BE SCARED TO INCLUDE CHEESY POP SONGS.
Consider movie soundtracks ! Those are ALREADY like mixtapes!
15 songs is a good # of tracks to shoot for.
3. Burn the CD !!!
Insert a blank disc into your disc drive.
FILE > BURN PLAYLIST TO DISC
4. Wait 4 the disc to burn.
Grab a big ol snack while u wait. Make sure you don’t bump your computer while the disc is burning or the driver could fail.
5. 🌸 DECORATE YER COVER, HUNY 🌸
This is obviously my fav part nnggg. My biggest tip is that collaging takes tons of practice to get a feel for. The person you’re making the mix for will love it NO MATTER WHAT, so don’t sweat it.
Here are some of my biggest tips on art directing yer new creation:
I start by cutting out a little less than 5″ by 5″ piece of plain card stock to act as a solid background.
A good title can MAKE a CD (and lend itself to some solid visuals).
Have a small collection of magazines + clippings to go to for inspiration. My favs are 1980′s Nat Geo’s, “Oh Comely” (a British rag). and NYLON.
To get my clippings, I look through a few issues and clip ANYTHING that relates to the vibe of my mix in any way. Sometimes I have a color scheme in my head or a specific imagine or mood. That guides my pics, but I’m always ready to deviate if something else grabs my eye.
Sometimes simple covers with a big graphic and some dope patterns/color blocking are more appealing than wild ones, so don’t overthink it ~
6. GIVE THAT BABY AWAY!
Here are some covers I’ve made to give y’all some samples:
If you follow this how-to, be sure to tag me in yer pics <3 !
You have a lot of posts about appreciating Taylor Swift's song lyrics. Can you share with us your favorite lyrics from each of her songs?
Wow, this was more difficult and more time consuming than I originally thought it would be. I didn’t include any unreleased songs, any soundtrack songs or any collaborations that weren’t on her studio albums.

“If It’s True” from Hadestown sung by Damon Daunno at NYTW
I’m forever annoyed that they didn’t include this in the recorded soundtrack. To give some context: this happens right after Nothing Changes, when Hades runs out Orpheus after he snuck in to save Eurydice the first time. By singing this song, Persephone takes his side and the walls open (see: Chant II “Everybody knows the walls have ears. Is it true?”)
Y’all like TAZ? What about drums? What about covers? Music in general?
Well if you like any of those, you might like this! A 30 min collection of drum covers for The Adventure Zone’s soundtrack, including hits like Legion (Or: A Pile of Ghosts) and Wonderland - Round Three, as well as the three songs picked out by the McElroy family to be their favorites in the second TTAZZ.
“American Gods” is the new Starz series based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name. It’s scored by Brian Reitzell, who’s worked on Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette, and The Bling Ring. Today, Milan Records has announced the “American Gods” soundtrack, which is out digitally June 16. The soundtrack includes Reitzell’s score, as well as collaborations with Mark Lanegan, Blondie’s Debbie Harry, and Garbage’s Shirley Manson.

The Attack on Titan Season 2 Original soundtrack tracklist is officially online! (x)
It counts a total of 33 tracks, of which 11 tracks are newly composed pieces, whilst the other 22 return from previous SnK releases.
This collection includes: the entirety of the 2nd S1 ost disc released with the 4th s1 bluray volume, safe for the piano track playing during the Hange/Nick scene atop the wall in ep 26. It also includes both complete recap movie soundtracks, as well as the new vocal tracks released as part of Sawano’s [nZk] vocal platform (Yamanaiame/Yamanaiame fmv/theDOGS/the Reluctant heroes modv/So ist es immer). None of the s1 disc 1 tracks are featured, and the SnKTen exhibition tracks are lacking as well.
2Volt is featured twice \o/ (thanks @leapingtitan for pointing that out)
The new additions to the soundtrack are
Barricades (vocal yosh;mpi;gemie), the track used in the 2nd PV that came out late May.
APETITAN, the Beast titan theme heard in PV 1 and the first 4 episodes.
YouSeeBIGGIRL/T:T (vocal Gemie) a vocal track possibly centered around Historia or Ymir perhaps?
son2seaVer, no vocals here.
Call of Silence (vocal Gemie)
ERENthe? I can’t quite make out the character used there, but it could possibly be
座 which is part of “coordinate”, that’s really just a wild guess though. EDIT: @fuku-shuu confirmed that the character is
標, referring to “coordinate” (at least I got the meaning right ashkd), thanks!
attack?D, no vocals here eiher
AOTs2M 1-4 –most likely the new atmospheric/background/piano tracks, some of which have already made an appearance in the episodes.
Overall, out of the 7 new bgms, we’ve heard already 4: APETITAN, Barricades, the Counterattack Mankind remix and the Vogel im Käfig remix, which presumably leaves us one instrumental, and two vocal tracks to discover (and perhaps some more background stuff)
