The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether

Inspired by a popular thread on Brass Goggles, I thought we could have a similar thread here where people post their musical likes and suggestions.

 

I suggest we try to stick to music that has some sort of steamy quality to it.

 

To get things started, here's Madness, all dressed up as Victorian explorers and being very musical hall about it. Steamy or not steamy? You decide:

The soundtrack to the Lucas Arts game "Outlaws."  Really excellent old west/steamy music;  I think it won one or more awards.
It's a good soundtrack, no question, though one of the slower tracks is actually a slowed-down version of Ennio Morricone's cemetary score in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly". Get that score too while you're at it.
Yes, it's very Morricone-like throughout.  Another good (surprising!) Morricone tribute piece is Enya's "Spaghetti Western Theme."  Yes, Enya!
