We know Alexander loved music, and may have been a tolerably good lyre player himself. Yet what sorts of music appealed to him? According to our sources, he was especially inflamed by martial melodies, although that might just be what later authors thought he ought to like. Nonetheless, I took it to heart and decided he'd be a fan of heavy metal (and maybe a few pop songs). The list below is all in good fun; I'm sure others would come up with a different list, and mine might even grow in the future. My playlists are typically arranged thematically, and/or try to tell a little story.
