Music to visit History Museums by

February 8, 2013


I’ve thought of another new feature for Museum Diary, which I hope you will enjoy. A while back, I compiled a list of music and songs which featured museums, either in the titles of pieces or in lyrics. I thought it would be fun to take this one step further, and compile a series of playlists which fit thematically with different kinds of museums. So, I present to you the first playlist of “Music To Visit Museums By” (please note that the track choices are greatly influenced by the music we have at home, I’m sure there are many more that would suit).

Track listing:

  1. Step Back in Time – Kylie Minogue
  2. The Mesopotamians – They Might Be Giants
  3. Knights of the Round Table – Monty Python
  4. Galileo – Indigo Girls
  5. Ye Jacobites – Eddi Reader
  6. The Battle of New Orleans – Johnny Cash
  7. Waterloo – ABBA
  8. Victoria – The Kinks
  9. After the Gold Rush – Neil Young
  10. The Titanic – Pete Seeger
  11. Man on the Moon – R.E.M.
  12. Sunday Bloody Sunday – U2
