Unoriginal Soundtracks Podcast: Assassin's Creed 2 Edition (Including Brotherhood and Revelations)

Every other Wednesday, I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Searching for relevant terms on Spotify is a great way to discover new music and uncover hidden gems. Make requests to @USPodcast on Twitter.

Assassin's Creed 2 (including its own sequels, Brotherhood and Revelations) is the pinnacle of musician-harassment simulators. It started with the ability to throw minstrels at cathedrals or into canals, and ended with Ezio infiltrating their ranks to commit crimes against music. Let this playlist of geographical, historical, and irreligious music compensate for those crimes.
