Phantom of the Opera?

My mom sings "Midnight at the Oasis" for Oasis.

My strongest one is "Life is a Highway, I'm gonna ride it all 6 buys"

Also you probably are an expert if you buy two bureaucrats early.

Ah yes, my buddy GozerGomez likes to sing "Highway Man" in the chat when that card's present.

Crossroads - If I'm in a classic rock mood, "Crossroads" by Cream. If even more classic than that, the original Robert Johnson version. Or, if I'm feeling hip-hoppish, I'll think "Tha Crossroads" by Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.

Bridge - Usually "Under the Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers. If in a more depressed mood (i.e. ten-game losing streak), "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon & Garfunkel.

Wishing Well - "Wishing Well" by Terence Trent D'arby is my usual choice, but sometimes I'll start singing "Goodnight Girl" by Wet Wet Wet instead.

Watchtower - "All Along the Watchtower," of course. Only the Jimi Hendrix version, though.

Island - ..."La Isla Bonita" by Madonna. Yeah.

Navigator - Reminds me of Nami, so I start whistling whatever "One Piece" theme pops into my head.

Island reminds me of "Islands in the Stream" by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.

Festival - The German song "Festival der Liebe" or the Dutch translation, an après-ski song.

Highway - "Gulf Coast Highway" (Nanci Griffith)

Centuries later, archaeologists discover the remains of your ancient civilization.

Evidence of thriving towns, Pottery, roads, and a centralized government amaze the startled scientists.

Finally, they come upon a stone tablet, which contains but one mysterious phrase!

Continuing with Masquerade, this song always pops in my mind whenever playing with the card:

I don't dare post what song pops in my mind whenever someone plays Possession. (Hint: It's not cheerful.)

Possession puts Possession by Sarah McLachlan in my mind. Don't know what song you're thinking of.

To market, to market, to buy a fat ___ insert card I am about to buy...

What about when you buy a Market?

City : Big city nights AND My City My Town (both from Scorpions)
Bridge : Under the bridge (RHCP)
Island : Island in the sun (Weezer)
Highway : Highway to Hell (ACDC), of course !!! And it's true games with highway are often pretty mad !
Chapel : (dont know the english title, if you don't recognize jump at 0:52)
And a few French songs :
Adventurer : L'Aventurier (Indochine) of course !!!
Caravan : En attendant les Caravanes (La Rue Kétanou)
Masquerade : Au bal masqué (Compagnie Créole)

And... that's it !

Edit : how could I forget "Sultans of Swing" (Dire Straits) for swingy cards that are Tribute, Harvest, Jester and Swindler ? A little ad for three memes : http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=1204.450

Um, I think most of us would agree that McLachlan's Possession is not a cheerful song.

At the risk of managing to out-nerd an entire forum dedicated to Dominion strategy, here is the soundtrack in my head for every Festival game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WadpQXFbIIY

I go with Bone Thugs'n Harmony for the Crossroad.

I don't know the artist of this one but it goes something along the lines of:

The only one that starts me singing is "Caravan" by Duke Ellington.
This.

Also

"Chapel of Love" Gooooin to the Chap-el and we're...gonnnna get traaaaaashed!

"The Militia" by Gang Starr. The hook is perfect for the card.

"Witchy Woman" by The Eagles

"The Torture Never Stops" by Frank Zappa.  Perfect for Torturer chains. 

"Wharf Rat" and "Ship of Fools (Gold)" by the Grateful Dead.   

"The Girl is Mine" by Michael Jackson The girl is Mine...mine mine!

"Even Rats" by The Slip

"Love Potion #9" by The Searchers

"Down With the King's Court" by Run DMC.  OK, it's really called "Down With The King"

"I'll Remake Love to You" by Boyz II Men.  It's a remix of "I'll Make Love to You" that doesn't exist yet.

"Hit the Road Jack" for Jack of All Trades

Not a song, but whenever I play Spice Merchant I hear Macho Man Randy Savage screaming "TURN UP THE SPICE!"

Ride the Lighthouse
Metal Militia
The Memory Remakes
Wasting my Haven

Divided Spy
Golem Papyrus
Chalkdust Torturer (this is my other handle on isotropic)
Dangled My Stash
Duchy and A Movie
Fly Famous Marketbird
Golgi Apprentice
The Story of the Ghost Ship
Moatstick
Slave to the Traffic Lighthouse
Weekapawn Groove
Harem Hood
The Minion Josie Wales
The Horse Traders
Let Me Lighthouse
You'll See the Ventures Moving In
Walls of the Margrave
Col. Forgin's Ascent
Can't I Live While I'm Young Witch

I've had idle thoughts of matching a song to every Dominion card, but then I wake up and do something constructive with my time. Like building a chicken factory in Minecraft.

Anyway, these are some of the song connections I remember right now.

Chapel - Chapel of Love, The Dixie Cups
Harem - Woman and Gold, Spooky Tooth, or Harem in the Leningrad Cowboys version
Mine - Diamonds in the Mine, Leonard Cohen (because, y'know, there really are no diamonds in the Mine); but also Gimli's bit about Moria from the first LotR movie ("And they call it a mine! A mine!")
Torturer - The Torture Never Stops, Frank Zappa
Taxman - Taxman, The Beatles
Cultist - Oops, I Did It Again, Britney Spears, though this shows up with a fair number of attack cards
City - I Am the City, ABBA
Witch - I Put a Spell On You, Screamin' Jay Hawkins
Bridge - Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Simon and Garfunkel

+1 for Gimli. I honestly had to laugh imagining somebody play Mine and say that. :)

Poor House

Actually, it was originally the reverse: this song put Poor House in my mind, but now it's working both ways.

Masquerade, for obvious reasons (huge Phantom phan over here)

Oasis tends to get a random Oasis song stuck in my head

Harem leads to the Sarah Brightman song

City, Sara Bareilles (or possibly the "I'm going leaving this city" line from Oasis's Go Let It Out)

and finally, cards like Mountebank always make my brain go "whatchu gon' do wid all dat junk"

Masquerade always takes me to the George Benson hit, especially with the opening lyric "are we really happy here with this lonely game we play".

Tribute: Tribute - Tenacious D
Masquerade: The Day Before You Came - Placebo
Bridge: Bridge over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
Highway: Life is a Highway - Tom Cochrane

The most obvious ones for me.

Masquerade makes me think of Masquerade from Phantom of the Opera (oftentimes sung out with the Swedish lyrics) and Pearl Diver makes me think of Sledgehammer with Peter Gabriel. Instead of Sledgehammer it's Pearl Diver.

So often the optimal number of Heroes you want to get is 1 which you exchange into a Champion and you want to keep the Warriors for the draw. This means the right thing to sing when MFs Exchange Screen pops up is: "We don't need another Hero."

This thread is great.
I always sing the soundtrack of Pirates of the Caribbean whenever I go for Pirate Ship (which is not often).
Also, Age of Empires' soundtrack when I play a Militia.

And I can already see myself singing the Carmina Burana whenever I play Fortune.
