Accompany my baby! We took a picture of our son every week for his first year, and I'm making them into a video to show on his birthday. What unexpected or otherwise non-sappy song can I use to go along with this? [more inside]

A friend of mine's been watching the anime "A Certain Scientific Railgun S", and he's been having trouble identifying one of the incidental music pieces. It's in episode 11, from 17:52 to 20:00--what song is this
(mp3), used here, and which of the OSTs is it on, if any? He says he's searched them all, including a second Railgun S OST which apparently came out yesterday, but he can't seem to find it, though he admits that he might have missed it along the line. Any help you can offer he'd appreciate. Thanks!

I've heard this
audio track on many BBC documentaries over the past few months, including multiple unconnected Panorama episodes and most recently on Britain's Favourite Supermarket Foods.
It seems an audio engineer is crushing on this track quite heavily, and now my brain is demanding to hear the whole thing and will replay it for me ad nauseam until it does. I've tried running it through SoundHound and Shazam to no avail, so I figure it might be from a production audio library instead of an actual song.
Does anyone know the title and composer of this piece, and more to the point, where I might obtain a copy?

For the past 24 hours or so I have been unable to turn off my internal mental soundtrack (that is my library of remembered songs, in playback mode, just as if I was hearing them now). It's starting to make me tired. I can change the music playing (currently 'smooth operator') but I can't turn it off entirely. I had a lot of trouble falling asleep last night b/c of the music playing in my head. And today at work it's distracting me. The default song seems to be 'Blurred Lines' but the playback isn't limited to just that tune. Has this ever happened to you? How did you stop it? [more inside]

What is the name of the warbling, sort of buzzy effect heard on the background accompaniment part? (It's hard to tell whether it's strings or a synthesizer.) Is it some kind of delay effect? (Link inside question.) [more inside]

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.

Please suggest songs (mostly but not exclusively blues and americana) for a soundtrack to a story about two very bad people on a cross-country Bonnie & Clyde-style crime spree.
Ideally the lyrics would be at least a little bit relevant, but that's less important than the tone. The best example I have so far is Holly Golightly's Devil Do
. [more inside]

Maybe my favorite aspect of Werner Herzog's Encounters at the End of the World
is the soundtrack, specifically whatever choral group is singing through out the film. For some reason I can't find information on who they are, and it doesn't appear that soundtracks were released. Anybody know who this group is and where I can find their music? I believe he used them in Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Looking for some help in locating music. Friends of mine have created a short film for a contest and are looking for some royalty-free film music to complement the piece. Does anyone know of an extensive library of downloadable royalty-free soundtrack work from perhaps the 40s, 50s and 60s? We only have ten short days to complete the film, that is why we are seeking pre-recorded existing music. A lot of those music sites charge absurd rates for royalty-free tracks. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I've been filling some of my idle time by playing Bastion (previously
), and have fallen in love with the soundtrack
. I'm pretty sure I remember some thematically similar stuff in Firefly, as well, for what that's worth. The Bastion team have categorized it as "acoustic frontier trip-hop," but since that's a genre that they pretty much just made up, I was hoping that my fellow AskMe folks could point me at other similar music. Special snowflake details after the break. [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!

Your tall musical order: I'm looking for instrumental tracks. Less than four minutes. Must have three "acts" that build from a quiet open to a mid-tempo, mid-power second act. Third and final act must end in a jump-out-of-your-chair fist-pump f*ck yeah
moment (that may or may not taper away afterwards). [more inside]

What's the name of that song that you play on your running playlist that makes you push yourself further? You know the one - you're jogging at a decent, steady pace and then it comes on and mentally you go "Oh, YES!" and suddenly everything seems to get a lot more awesome and you are running full pelt with a huge grin on your face.

I really like the song End of Line
by Daft Punk on the Tron soundtrack. What genre would that be, house? Can you recommend similar tracks, or artists? The other Daft Punk stuff is cool, too, but generally of a much lighter mood, I think.

I'm making a video about modern art. Especially about the Centre Pompidou in Paris. As I've stated in other AskMe's, I'm completely music illiterate. Help me find songs or classical pieces that scream: modernism, modern art, modern things, for the soundtrack of my 6 minute video.

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?
