One can dream, right?

Today's track is Baba Yetu from Sid Meier's Civilization IV

Please note due to copyright issues I can not make this song available for you to download directly.

I am not really of fan of strategy games, I haven't even played any of the Civilization games either, yet the soundtrack for Civiliztion IV is really damn good and it shows. Winning a Grammy isn't something that anybody can do and Christopher Tin did it. Yes, the song is around 5 years old, and it has also appeared on Video Games LIVE! since they started doing it, it is still a great recognition for such a great track.

I really can't describe what makes Baba Yetu so appealing, it just does. It has a really soothing rhythm, captivating vocals and a really great ambience to it. Not to mention that watching the opening sequence for Civilization IV while this song plays is just astounding.

While this probably won't make the Grammy judges or comitee turn their heads to video game music, this sure is a huge step for it. And who knows, we could probably get a Video Game Soundtrack category in the near future.

If you wanna check out other stuff Christopher Tin has done or you want to learn more about the Award winning album "Calling All Dawns", where Baba Yetu is featured, you can visit his website at

If you have suggestions or recommendations for future "I love that song" segments or just wanna comment about the song please click the "Add new comment" link or contact us via Twitter: @Darktetsuya or me, @act_deft!

Until next time, keep on conquerin'!
