Awesome Music / The Sims

The Sims 1
  • The Sims 1 main theme. If you are in the proper mood, it WILL make you cry. But they're the most glorious of tears.
  • Most of the Neighbourhood, Rock, Jazz tracks from the base game, the Disco tracks from House Party, and the neighborhood tracks from all subsequent expansion tracks.
    • If you've played the American version of The Sims without any expansion packs, chances are you'll recognize Neighborhood 1, the first song that plays every time you enter the neighborhood screen for the first time. Also a potential Ear Worm, this jazzy tune lovably conjures up imagery of 1960s and 1970s suburbia.
    • While for players of the European version, this song may be the equivalent. It frequently plays on the neighborhood screen. Songs like this were definitely the icing on the cake for The Sims 1, taking a great game and giving it a lovely soundtrack to boot.

The Sims 2
  • All the neighbourhood themes:
    • University deserves special mention because most of the future S2 expansions' themes AND The Sims 3's main theme are essentially remixes of it. It has basically grown into the Leitmotif of the entire series. Or at least that of Sims 2 & 3. Very crowning music indeed.
    • Seasons. It could qualify as a lullaby with how relaxing it is.
  • Pretty much all the real life songs played on the radio are excellently chosen, but many consider this, played on the College Rock channel, to be the best one by far. They actually got the real singers to do their song in Simlish.
  • W of P3 - Aff Wubbas Doo. Unfortunately, it was created just for Sims 2 Pets, but it's unlikely you'll ever hear it if you don't also have University.
  • "It wouldn't be so bad" stands out amongst OFB's New Wave music channel. There simply isn't any better music for your sims to smustle to. It's a legitimately good song, unfortunately since it was purely made for the game, there's no non-Simlish version. What a shame.
  • Any devoted Sims 2 player will remember "Show me the Way". It's the most easily recognized radio song in The Sims 2, as one of the game's early trailers used it, and it's frequently heard during several of the ingame TV shows.
  • The console versions of the game have a nice little one: Chameleon, which sounds like a French top pop hit.
