I find that video game soundtracks are particularly good background music for programming, but I rarely have time to play new games and discover new music. In the past, I have enjoyed the Superbrothers soundtrack, the soundtrack to Hotline Miami, FTL, certain tracks from Kentucky Route Zero, and the last Deus Ex Machina. Can you recommend post-2014 video game soundtracks that help you to achieve a state of flow?
My Google-fu has failed me: the first time I heard the Eels song "Climbing To The Moon," it was over the end credits of a film. What was the film?

Help me remember music videos from that magical era when bands would record theme songs for (often horror) movies that were actually lyrically about the movies themselves and the artist would sometimes appear in the video and the video would be a story video and...well you know. Think Ramones' "Pet Sematary" or Dokken's "Dream Warriors" [more inside]

I want more soundtrack music like Hans Zimmer - Time and Gattaca - The Departure -- really emotional, sweeping orchestral songs that tug at the heartstrings...
Can you recommend some good romantic movies that feature people who might be considered by some to be 'losers' or, if not that harsh, people who would be considered generally unattractive due to looks or lifestyle or any other reason that would make one not alpha? Other necessary qualities are an excellent soundtrack and definitely a script that rises above the cliche. Any genre is fine, so long as there is something touching about the romantic link between the protagonists. [more inside]

PF Project's song Choose Life is constructed from samples of a monologue by the lead character of the film Trainspotting. Similarly, This Is Your Life by the Dust Brothers is built around samples from the film Fight Club reformulated as a monologue and overlaid on some trip-hop beats. Neither was actually featured in the film, but were released as singles and appeared on the soundtrack. What other songs like this are there?

I'm looking for more instrumental music that sounds similar to the violin-heavy themes in FARGO, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES, and LoTR: THE TWO TOWERS. [more inside]
This is one that's been bugging me forEVER. My guess is that it's just needledrop music, but it seems way too prevalent for that. But the song I'm looking for is the "ha ha ha ha ha ha ha/ho ho ho ho ho ho ho/hee hee hee hee hee hee hee/Haaa haaaa haaaa" one that seems to pop up a lot in Cartoons. [more inside]
Any recommendations for stores in Albuquerque, NM for the cast recordings and soundtracks for stage or film musicals on CD? The Borders and Barnes & Noble stores are pretty good, but I'm wondering if other stores in town have better selections. Thanks!

A few months ago, there was news that Kevin Smith would release a director's commentary early, so fans of Clerks 2 could rewatch the movie in a theater with an iPod. Clerks 2 has come and gone from my local theater but I'm still wondering if this audio ever came out, because I'd love to hear it and watch the movie again (have to catch it at the $1 theater now). Anyone ever heard what became of this? I don't see any mentions of it online

Any Satie fans out there? What movie is this music from? I just purchases this Satie CD, and I know I've heard it in a movie somewhere and it's driving me crazy... [more inside]
I've got a Satie piece in my head and it just won't quit. And it's not on any Satie CDs I've checked out of the library. I'm pretty sure it's featured in the movie "Being There," though. It's mostly in a major key, and it's relaxed and friendly. Any thoughts? Anyone have the soundtrack listing at their fingertips?
Nonlinear music: where can I find good examples? I remember the Final Fantasy composer talking about one of the scores for a boss battle that could transition several different ways, for example. [more inside]
A while ago I watched Real Women Have Curves and heard a beautiful song during the scene part way through the movie when she and the preppy kid are first getting together. Went something like, "nina hermosa, nina something, nina something." Sorry I can't be more specific. Anyway, I bought the soundtrack to get the song and sadly it was not on the soundtrack. Any idea what that song is?
Is there any particular way to break into the composing-music-for-soundtracks biz?
