Biggest longshot, but what the hell... The music playing in the bar/strip club in Outland (Sean Connery, 1981)? [more inside]

Can you recommend movie scores that sound like the OST for Brick
? Organic and evocative, particularly like the last 5-10 seconds of that trailer. Almost like music that's been made without using traditional musical instruments. Words like jangly or handmade come to mind. Thanks!

I watched Darjeeling Limited
/ Hotel Chevalier
a while ago and I fell in love with one of the songs featured in these movies. The song is Where do you go my lovely by Peter Sarstedt. To me it conveys sophistication, melancholy and nostalgia. What other songs from this era would I probably like?

So, let's just assume I got an internship for this small radio station and I want to start a segment introducing listeners to great Jazz music in movies - can be both specifically written/performed for the particular movie or a song/track that existed previously and was used prominently in the movie.

Is this piece of music, used in the film 'Forget Paris', just incidental music or a well known piece of jazz? If it is well known, what is it?
(starts around 2:53) [mild expletive warning for the clip]
I bought the soundtrack, composed by Marc Shaiman, and it's not on there.

Help me identify this mystery track from my friends' mix CD, that he can't recall either. No sample available, yet! It's more than likely a movie score track. Cross between 1941
, Elfman, Zimmer, Willow
, and involves kazoos in places. [more inside]

Who plays the music on the soundtrack to the movie Godspeed you Black Emperor!
, a documentary about japanese biker gangs? IMDB has no info and copies of the DVD I've seen have no info. It sounds like Japanese surf rock, but I don't have a clue as to who it possibly could be. [more inside]

Can anyone recognize this theme
(YSI mp3 extract; 1.2MB) from Manuel de Falla's El Amor Brujo? I have a strong sense that I've heard it appropriated as(or "inspired") some movie's theme, but the IMDb soundtrack search doesn't throw up anything familiar, credited to de Falla.

This has been bugging me for years; someone has to know the answer. In "The Jerk" (Steve Martin, 1979), Steve Martin's character gets out of bed to snap his fingers and dance to a song on the radio he claims "speaks" to him. What is that song, and who performed it? [more inside]

What's the music in the (International #1) trailer for The World's Fastest Indian
? It's the guitar riff that begins right after the line, "It's what we're here for"--cut to a shot of a red vehicle speeding down the Bonneville Salt Flat. It's used again after the zoom-in on Anthony Hopkins and the VO, "Burt Monro's not ready to finish yet, I'll tell you that mate." Quicktime: small
