5 SONGS THAT MATCH THE ESCAPE ROOM ATMOSPHERE

There’s a song for every emotion.


If I were to ask you…

“Describe the atmosphere inside an escape room in one word”

What would that word be?

  • Fun?

  • Thrilling?

  • Unforgettable?

Yeah, not that easy, is it, to pick just ONE word that describes the atmosphere inside an escape room?


Believe me, as an escape room owner, games master, and escape room enthusiast, I know how fulfilling an escape room experience is…

...and how difficult it is to pick just one emotion that describes the atmosphere inside an escape room.


So, as an alternative, we’ll try to pinpoint songs.

Because, as they say,

I think there is a song out there to describe just about any situation.

Here are 5 songs that match the escape room atmosphere:

Minnie the Moocher by Cab Calloway


Said to have been inspired by the antics of an actual lady of the time, Minnie the Moocher was Cab Calloway’s breakthrough hit.


His dynamic antics and range of voice were one of a kind at the time, and as you can see, match the fun of an escape game perfectly.

The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane


Covered by numerous singers, including Dean Martin, Ray Charles and the Ames Brothers, this is a rather fun song describing a certain lady.


It describes how she’s hit her hometown ‘like a bomb’, ‘started a riot’, offers her admirers ‘quite a thrill’, and never says no to ‘liquid refreshment’.


Now, you might well think, what does this song about a zesty lady…

...who seems to have numerous admirers wrapped around her little finger…

...have to do with an escape room?


Well, just listen to the song, down to the last line, and you’ll figure it out!

Hint: there’s a little fact about the lady that makes for one heck of a twist at the end...like you can get in some escape rooms!


I think I know what you’re thinking.

Great songs. None of them from this century, but...great!

Enfilade by At The Drive-In


OK.

Not gonna mince words.

This song is a bit creepy.


It starts off with a mysterious ransom demand...and everything goes haywire thereon.


An excellent fit for something like the Zodiac Killer escape game.


If you’re stuck at home, you can check out our online escape game which has a very Zodiac-y feeling.

We Belong Together by Mariah Carey


The song is about a woman’s lament after she’s broken off a relationship.


Well, of course, you should just listen to it for a taste of Mariah Carey’s vocals...but also because it makes a powerful case for you to not give up on relationships, and work on maintaining your relationship or build one.


And, in case you didn’t know, romance and room escape games go hand in hand.

Highway to Hell by AC/DC


Inspired by a certain accident-heavy stretch of highway in Australia, albeit one that led up to a famous pub, Highway to Hell has been billed as one of the most influential rock and roll songs of all time.


Now of course, escape rooms are designed to be safe experiences.

Thrilling, but safe.


And there is very little chance of any actual accidents happening at Chicago’s premier escape room (yes, us).


BUT, the energy that flows through this song is an apt fit for an escape room experience.


And those are the 5 songs that match the atmosphere inside an escape room:

  • Minnie the Moocher by Cab Calloway

  • The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane

  • Enfilade by At The Drive-In

  • We Belong Together by Mariah Carey

  • Highway to Hell by AC/DC
