Working on a project and I'm looking for songs that have a dark, driving, ominous beat. Like a thunderstorm looming on the horizon if I could give it a visual. [more inside]

I love the theatrical, haunting, sad, yet, beautiful music of Lana Del Ray. Can you recommend any similar music, or accompanying literature and cinema? Thank you!

Asking for my husband: I just got the Heat soundtrack
, and it is intense and moody. I am looking for other soundtracks, or actual albums, that fit that bill. Obviously Blade Runner, and I am imagining a lot of Friedkin films, but the mix of dark and strong is something I would like to hear more of.

I'm looking for ambient music which consists of dark undertones, "good" beats, and a general feeling of...psychedelic hopelessness? danger, maybe? I'm not sure. [more inside]

A long time ago I was playing trivia in a bar and in between rounds one night this dark, almost minimalist country song played. I'm reasonably sure it was a Patsy Cline song. It was in a minor key with a theramin or possibly backup singers (or both!?) providing eerie accompaniment to a very catchy tune. I'd heard it before so I assume it's well known, but it's not on her greatest hits. Any ideas what the title might be?

I'm particularly fond of Tara Nevin's rendition of "Stars Fell on Alabama"
from the (terrible) film 20 Years After
. (It's the only thing that made the film worth watching). It feels like something that could be played at a funeral march in the deep south. How would you categorize this particular piece of music? Dark bluegrass? Help me find more music in this dark and moody style. Slow, fiddle driven is a plus. Somber and dirge-like (musical rather than lyrical), double plus.

I am looking for songs that call to mind (music-wise, rather than lyrics-wise) the rather specific feeling of walking or driving away from a great disaster that has left one greatly scarred, but alive: Post-apocalyptic victory songs. [more inside]

Not-Lame Country Music: I understand that some Alice in Chains, Nirvana, etc. , songs have a strong "country" flavor, deep guitars, slow vocals, tons of mood, while still rocking. I know nothing about country music, and most of what I've heard doesn't do it for me. What dark, slow and moody Country music would you recommend?
