I really thought that we knew the whole setlist. I thought that last leak, taking us to 30 songs was it. It turns out there was more. MORE! Yes, today, Harmonix officially unveiled the full setlist to Fantasia: Music Evolved. In addition to the six leaked previously, two more previously unknown songs were announced. One is by legendary classical composer Johann Sebastian Bach, and the other is by notable video game composer Inon Zur, who you may know for his work on Fallout 3 and New Vegas, as well as the Dragon Age series. He is contributing an original song which tells the story of Scout, our guide through the world of Fantasia: Music Evolved. The track features the violinist Lindsay Sterling.

  • Inon Zur ft. Lindsey Sterling – Scout’s Theme
  • Johann Sebastian Bach – Toccata and Fugue in D Minor

And officially confirmed are:

  • The Flaming Lips – Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. 1
  • Franz Liszt – Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2
  • Imagine Dragons – Radioactive
  • The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Fire
  • Lady Gaga – Applause
  • Missy Elliot – Get Ur Freak On
