Civilization II's music is in the Red Book CD-audio format, the same as that found on normal music CDs. The songs are quite varied; some are from the 19th century classical era, such as the Blue Danube Waltz, while others have a tribal, tropical sound to them. The music can be played back through any CD-ROM drive. Over 200 MB of space on the Civilization II CD is taken up by the music, 280 MB is occupied by the videos (many of them are historical footages), whereas the actual program data takes up less than 30 MB.

The five different releases of Civilization II have added and subtracted tracks from the mix, with Fantastic Worlds containing the largest number of tracks of all releases.

Wonders of the World MusicEdit

Whenever a player builds a Wonder of the World, a short video with music is played. The music is often taken from other sources:

Most videos, however, feature original compositions with often discernible inspiration,[1] either from Peter Gabriel's soundtrack to The Last Temptation of Christ'':

  • Pyramids - "The Feeling Begins"
  • Great Wall of China - "Gethsemane"
  • Sun Tzu's War Academy - "Gethsemane"

Trevor Jones' and Randy Edelman's soundtrack to The Last of the Mohicans (1992):

  • Colossus - Main Title
  • Great Lighthouse - "Elk Hunt"
  • Marco Polo's Embassy - "The Kiss"
  • Magellan's Expedition - "Fort Battle"
  • United Nations - "The Glade Part II"
