What's the best song in a WAD you've ever heard?

Recommended Posts

Not the best song (still pretty damn good), but the best buildup and song-matching-the-map experience I recall having is Jade Earth, with that Mark Klem track building up the suspense.

I love Stuart Ryn's "24" from BTSX E1 MAP14.

I fucking love that track. Synth sounds like cats!

"Sexy" - E1M5 from 2002 A Doom Odyssey by good ol' Paul Corfiatis. I mean the whole soundtrack is overall great, but that song is one I remember getting stuck in my head after playing the Demo of Episode 1.

STARS.MID (Speed of Doom MAP31, Valiant MAP31)

Thread over. I don't know why this isn't the definite answer in the FAQ already.

Memento Mori MAP14


This is also a great answer. and I think Map05 or Map06 from #2 is also up there.

There's a ton of stuff in BTSX that I absolutely adore. Here's a few of my personal favourites:

Episode 1:

"Yaw" - Jimmy - E1M11
"Womp" - Essel - E1M22

Episode 2:

"Scattered Ashes" - Jimmy - E2M13
"Enigma" - Jimmy - E2M14
"Ether" - Essel - E2M20*

Episode 3:

"Zero Degrees Kelvin" - Jimmy
"Egypt" - Essel
"Tartarus Plains" - Jimmy
"Kugelblitz" - Jimmy

IMO E3 has some of Jimmy's best work.

*E2M20 uses an extended version of the track in the video.

There are two wads: Amok and Amok 2_11 that are equal to any great wad you may have played. The midi that came with the wads is my favorite

depending how fickle I'm feeling, either BTSX E2M4, or any classic wad that used the entire first half of Tubular Bells as its soundtrack =P

Ah, how could I possibly forget.
My long time favorite midi is 2002ADO's E3M8 by Paul Corfiatis. Any map that uses this track instantly becomes fun in my eyes. It's just so damn good.

Any soundtracks composed by Stuart Rynn, such as "Stars", "Core", "Air", "Night Run", "Jail Break", etc. Just to name a few.

There's plenty of great ones put there.

Momento Mori map02 (and many other mark klem tunes)
Doomcity.wad has a cool song
Dwango6map01 uses music from descent, which is kick ass.
Exec.wad is choc full of great midis.
Basically anything by Jimmy!

I'm missing so many - there's a lot to choose from.
