Here’s my favourite new finds for songs to play in the background of your next DND session! 😎✨
Yes, I play DND, and I love it!
Best background songs for playing DND
1. Step into the Stinky Dragon by Micah Risinger – look, I’m cheating with this one because it’s from the DND actual play podcast Tales from the Stinky Dragon, but I’m not sorry — it’s just amazing! Great for literally anything. (Bonus – another amazing song by Micah that’s been stuck in my head for weeks: His Name Is Mudd (firbolg comedy song).)
2. Jungle & tribal music – lost rainforest by the Fiechters. Good for forest and wilderness scenes!
3. Running up that hill (by Kate Bush) instrumentals only, performed by the Unsecret String Quartet. Great for emotional scenes.
4. Heroic Fantasy Music by the Fiechters. Good for the start of initiative in combat scenes and for use as a theme song for characters in the martial classes.
5. If in a fantasy Maori setting – Hine-i-te Awatea (Oceanic Feeling, the Maori translation version) by Lorde. Good for druids. ♥️
