This will be background music for a steampunk game someday - I just don't know which one. I do not yet have anything set in Siam. Cruel Fairy Tale by IU.

Another bit of theme music, waiting for a game - most likely steampunk, maybe the Scooby Punk Redux campaign. (A little to Elfmanesque for the Gargoyles campaign.)

Future Worlds Music has a large number of really good soundtracks that can easily be used for games.

I don't even watch the show, but Game of Thrones seems to have the best choice in trailer music. This year it's Bones by MS MR

That is a really stellar track. Played it on loop for about an hour when that trailer first hit.

There is a 'Between the Wars' SC2.0 campaign set in Berlin that I have been tempted to run for a while.

Between WWI and WWII was a bad time for Germany- both men and women prostituted themselves for American money, while the Mark kept plunging ever further. One American dollar could buy almost a week's worth of food.

Americans would take advantage of that.

That song, and that video, would fit that campaign very well.

I've been listening to Jimi Hendrix's People, Hell & Angels. There's some damn fine music on there, and my Hendrix-loving mother in law agrees.

You can preview the tracks on YouTube if you're curious.

Journey of the Sorcerer (Kungfu Lemon Remix) This may have just become my definitive version of the track, though the Mik Jones remix is just as awesome

For comparison, the original version by the Eagles

Adagio - Immigrant Song -- an itriguing instrumental cover of the classic Led Zepplin track.
DaGamba - Immigrant Song -- a slightly more conventional but still kickin' cello version

And of course

That song, and that video, would fit that campaign very well.

The Auld Grump
Ran the opening scenario tonight.

They have gotten to the part where the gentleman in the music video is found dead in that same place, allegedly after the Fraulein has left.

Borrowing shamelessly from this, the musical Cabaret, Norse mythology, Neil Gaiman's American Gods, and the movie Angel Heart. Add a dash of the flip side of Casablanca for the espionage element.

The gentleman is an American agent, one that has been abusing his relative wealth. Sleeping with both the German officers of WWI and their wives.

The woman is just what she appears to be - using her body to make a living in an era where a million marks cannot buy a loaf of bread. Elsa Adler, a married woman who's husband is also bound by the American and his money.

The American is found blood eagled, his lungs spread as wings.

Across the city of Berlin the German officer is found hanging from a tree, strangled, his gut pierced by a spear.

Elsa Adler has vanished.

The PCs are British agents, who were supposed to contact both the American and the German officer. (If they had set out early they could have found the bodies before the police, but they dawdled.)

Pretty sure that I managed to creep the players out. :) They hated the American agent, and thought that he would turn out to be the bad guy.... They sympathized with the German officer, but felt that he would end up a Nazi.

Instead they are both dead, in gruesome fashions, and Elsa was seen near both sites - apparently at the same moment, or nearly.

Elsa has become Valkyrie, a chooser of the slain.... War might have been averted or delayed, but is now inevitable. (The PCs could not have saved either man - the war was coming, regardless of the PC actions.)

Stopping her will not prevent WWII, merely limit how one faction benefits from the bloodshed.

In the rising dawn between WWI and WWII, old powers are stirring. The fourth horseman is coming, on a pale grey horse with eight legs.

Wodin was not the good guy - god of mad men, murderers, hanged men, and poets....

This is not Ragnarok, but it will fill the mists of Niffleheim with shades.... and the fingernails of those that die in the concentration camps will build the hull of Naglfar.

The old gods are parasites, drawing blood from the conflict as leeches.

The Auld Grump - I fully expect the PCs to blame Loki, who is still bound, and blameless in this... the closest that he comes to having an agent in this mess was the American, who dies in the prelude to the first act....
I don't know how the story ends...
But I do know what happens next.
