I've always played with Bach solo piano works by Glenn Gould. 13 hours of that shit. I couldn't imagine it any other way. Lengthy EU3 sessions have made me an expert on Bach
how about "the desert lounge" for a arabic feel
thanks those are all awesome, along with last of the mohicans, nice touch
Tips on achieving EPIC trade league dominance
My current research into Trade Good Supply, Demand, and Pricing Changes:
I use music from my collection of "early music," changing music in and out as the era changes. (Note to self: need more 17th century stuff.)
South Carolina is too small for a republic and too large for a mental asylum. -- James Pettigru, 1856
On Last.fm and LiveJournal as susannag. On GoodReads as Susanna.
It might depend on the nation I'm playing with. 18th century Austria with W.A. Mozart as an advisor sorta demands using his music too. In my Milan game I would use some Renaissance Italian music and Gesualdo.

You shouldn't say "not this and not that", because to some people, the EU3 "feeling" may be related to the kind of music you excluded.
anyway this is mine: Globus - Europa http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6uX0MWetHA

I would add the soundtracks to the Lord of the Rings movies and a hearty second on Last of the Mohicans, that soundtrack is awesome
By far the best battle music is everything that has absolutely no military feeling to it. I like it when two armies slaughter each other on the field, while I'm sitting in a palace, lamenting the death of my best country men.
Claudio Monterverdi: Duo Seraphim
Henry Purcell: Hear my prayer, O Lord
Heinrich Schütz - O Jesu, Nomen Dulce
edit: forgot to add: all these pieces have awesome artistic value to them, so you'll be a better human for knowing them even if you don't listen to them while playing EUIII

:O you can put anything in there??
The first modification I did to my EU2 was to scrap all 15th century nonsense and replace it with late-game epics. I picked the best ones and massed them up in one soundrack and combined that with HoI1 soundtrack which also has plenty of awesome war-themed classical music. In fact, I still use HoI1 soundtrack in all my Hearts of Iron installments.
Byzantium - Imperial Restoration for Darkest Hour
Empire of Pohjola for Crusader Kings II
The Nazi Time Machine - A Strange Story of the First Reich (CK2) Dead due to save game corruption. Will restart eventually.
I just put alot of Andreas Waldetoft in the folder. He is the guy that made the EUIII music as well as music for tons of other paradox games. Works perfectly.
But to be honest, i rarely listen to the in-game music. I usually listen to a podcast or my own music on Spotify when playing.
