The Fantasy Soundtrack Playlist

There's never been a better time to be a fantasy nerd. As Game of Thrones wraps up its sixth season, take some time to appreciate the grand tradition of music in the fantasy stories we love. Music nerds have a lot to love in fantasy franchises. Whether it's the instantly iconic masterpiece of the Game of Thrones opening, or the genius interplay of leitmotifs throughout the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the fantasy genre is full of music that lives up to the name "fantastic".

This playlist, from Spotify user Tyler Ash, compiles some of the greatest fantasy soundtracks from shows, movies and games like Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Fable, Dragon Age, Witcher and Dungeons and Dragons. Turn on shuffle mode and let it play through the weekend as you get ready for George R.R. Martin to break your heart yet again.

Welcome to our Featured Playlist series. Each week, we'll share a new themed playlist, embedded for your convenience! You can copy the track list to your service of choice, or listen right here. Have a sweet playlist of your own? Share it with us in the comments below!


    No Conan the Barbarian = massive list fail

    The Witcher, Age of Conan (the defunct MMO) are my constant companions when I need to get stuff done. But I'll dip into loads more including:-

    Alien 3
    Star Trek 6
    Final Fantasy - just about any of them though Crisis Core is about the best to work to.

    I don't really enjoy the Dragon Age Soundtrack for working. To be honest though the worst ones to listen to while working are the Blizzard soundtracks. They're all perfect for in game and great soundtracks overall - but terrible to work to.
