Battle Bards Episode 156: Feeling blue

    
2

Is blue a color? An emotion? A song? An overused alien skin tone? One thing is for certain: Blue shows up an awful lot in MMORPG soundtracks, which is why the Battle Bards have mined their music libraries for the bluest of blue tunes to share. Will they come to a conclusion as to what “blue” means? And will Steff ever let go of a grudge? Probably never, but it’ll be a fun listen even so!

Battle Bards is a the world’s first, best, and only MMO music podcast. Biweekly episodes alternate between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

I too often wonder why blue is used to describe sad. Blue skies are cheery. Another great episode.

As my main in SWTOR was Chiss, and out of 22 characters 8 of them were Chiss on total, I find blue to be used a perfect amount for alien skin tones! :P
