Background music

There is no rating or review system for these. Add whatever you think is appropriate. Please specify why.

Film soundtracks

Distinguish between the subject matter of a film and the actual appropriateness of its music for table-top use. A lot of soundtracks are closely keyed to the action of their films and do not work as unmanaged background music. Good background music also has no discernible vocals to distract from the conversation that constitutes the RPG.

  • Angel Heart.
  • Alien 3.
  • Basic Instinct.
  • The Cotton Club.
  • Miss Smilla's Sense for Snow. Really?
  • The Abyss. Good for SCUBA.
  • Crimson Tide.
  • The Outer Limits.

  • Interview with the Vampire.
  • The Exorcist. Mujaheddin singing or strings perfect for bugs running around (for some B-movie adventure).
  • Speed. Action scenes.
  • Koyaanisqatsi (Philip Glass). The title track is good for a sinister ritual. Other tracks good for MJ-12 superman experiments.
