Dark dance music that says quarter life crisis

I am looking for modern, dark, forward thinking, dance music which preferably somehow reflects on the theme of a quarter life crisis. Overly exacting specifications inside. [more inside]

Looking For Songs That Have A Dark, Driving Beat

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]

Recommend media that is dark, sad, and beautiful

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!

Similar music to the Heat soundtrack?

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.

Sexy-Creepy Songs

chococat calls his rendition of Fame "dirge-like"; I call it creepy-sexy-creepy. e.g. It's rather a turn on, even though it sounds just subtly too menacing or scary to be a turn-on, but that very quality is why it's a turn-on. Any other recommendations for similar songs? (The only other one I know that fits is Poe's Control.)

My ears are requesting some swoony swagger.

I'm looking for more songs like these three (male vocals, with dark and dour swoony swagger): Elbow - The Fix, The Damned - Torture Me, Blur - To the End. I already know about Murder by Death, Firewater, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Joy Division, Morphine and Marc Almond...what am I missing?

It's fun to listen to when walking around at night.

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]

The eerie side of Patsy Cline?

MeFites, 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?

Help me find more music like Tara Nevin's version of "Stars Fell on Alabama"

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.

Give us a soundtrack for our walk away from the apocalypse

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

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?
