    I like it!
    I usually listen to bells and chimes when I play EMs. But if I wanted to pair my EM experience with music it would be iron horse!

    #3 1 year ago

    Two. I like to mix them up.

    you're not wrong, usually 9/10 times i play i love just hearing bells and chimes...but a few pints deep and an evening out of it sometimes you have to mix it up when gettin' rowdy!

    60’s.......

    XM channels, Willie’s Roadhouse, Outlaw Country, Prime Country. I keep it low just as background filler. I find it hard to concentrate and play with rock music. Old time Country music just keeps me chill.

    The chimes alone are music to my ears, especially when we have a bunch of people playing. I don't think I've ever turned on music while playing our pins.

    Music from the film Braveheart of course

    Usually just have a TV on. Not paying to much attention to it but it will be on none the less. Not listening to music.

    #13 1 year ago

    I usually have the radio on playing classic rock at a low level..unless there’s a few beers going down between games..

    #14 1 year ago

    Classic rock. The heavier the bass, the better!

    (no subwoofers on my EM's)

    #15 1 year ago

    Disco XM station pumping through a huge PA while playing John Pedersen’s amazing EM collection.

    The Last of the Mohicans Soundtrack
    The Mission (John Williams version)
    Theme to Master and Commander
    Ozark Mountain Daredevils Car Over The Lake.
    Just a few favorites...

    I'm a rock guy through and through and more modern music also but if you've never experienced EMs with the lights down real low while listening to doo-wop you're missing out big time.

    I like cranking up Lawrence Welk and his Champagne Orchestra. I really get going when Myron Floren breaks into a rip roaring accordion solo!

    Quoted from Otaku:

    Van Halen or Van Hagar ?

    #26 1 year ago

    Rock. The rock and the bells/chimes take me back to the arcades of the 60s/70s.

    And I crank it up.

    #27 1 year ago

    Mostly modern alternative rock including the classics from the 90s.

    The good ol' bells and chimes.

    #34 1 year ago

    Rock and alt rock but my highest score on my jacks open at 181,000 I got when I was listening to all star by smash mouth

    #35 1 year ago

    Usually just the great sounds of the machines. Mayfair in particular sounds great. But sometimes Pandora 60’s 70’s and 80’s.

    Must've been motivated to keep the chimes going and drown out the radio.
