I Can Comment On Last of the Mohicans:

It Has Very Dramatic "Open" Themes, Good Adventuring Music... Very Different than Conan (Which is Very Heroic Fantasy Drums and Vocals), This is Still Good Adventure Music But more Sentimental at times... It Did a Good Job og Reflecting some of the Transition from Irish Folk Traditional Music of the Day (1600-1700) to The Country Music of Today... (Not Saying it's Country, Just that it Musically Describes that process)... This Having been Said it is also Very Orchestral with a Strong Irish Flavor...

As to LOTR, or Gladiator,

I Never Purchased the Sound Tracks because they Really did not "Stick" with me for what Ever Reasons... I Loved ALL of the LOTR Flicks and Enjoyed Gladiator, But The Music has Made no Particular Impression I Guess...

Now for Sci-Fi Gameing my List is a Little Different because I Tend to Preffer Cyber-punk/ Post-apocalyptic Genres to Say Space Opera or Alien Contact/ Invasion. So in no Particular Order:

Einsturzende Neubauten- (Pretty Much Anything, But I Really Like Strategies Against Archetecture II)...

Laibach- (Particularly Opus Dei, and Acropolis)...

Ministry- (Any)...

NIN- (Any, But I Like Downward Spiral)...

Nina Hagen- (Nunsexmunkrock)...

Pink Floyd- (Metal)...


And Although I Like GWAR performance wise (Seen them Lots Locally as Well as at Dragon Con) I Do Not Own any, and I Have Never Gamed to Gwar...

I pull selected tracks from:

Baldur's Gate
BG II
Icewind Dale I and II
Planescape Torment
LotR - any
Conan
Dragonheart
Robin Hood
Pirates of the Caribbean
Many other PC game music tracks such as Dungeon Keeper I and II
and other fantasy games.

Then I assemble them for a particular game. I also have a standard cd with tracks listed as

Intro
Battle I, II, III etc
Travel I, II etc.
Mysterious I, II, etc.

We use Conan I & II, LOTR I, II, & III, 13th Warrior, & Dracula. We also have a couple of "period" music cds like Medieval festival tunes, Gypsy violin music, etc. We always have something playing in the background, but we don't usually cue anything up to match the action unless there's some game-worthy significance to doing it. Occasionally, we will trot out an effect or two on a cued tape, but if I can find some objects that replicate the noise live, I prefer to do that instead (like scraping 2 bricks together slowly to make the sound of a stone door opening across a stone floor).

I really like what's now called 'power metal' as background music, or even as inspiration for creating scenarios, modules or even new sets of rules. But then again, the Star Wars soundtrack does go great with a gaming session too.

I have a standard soundtrack (see above) which I change each year a bit and then bring specific music burned on cds for special games. I just use a remote in the game room to key up the right track and loop it till a battle ends or begins etc. I usually assign one of the players to do this. I just let them know what track to play when.

Yes, I do put alot of effort into the game (too much?). We meet every two weeks except for holidays for nine months of the year for 5 hours a session. I take the summers off.

We are just finishing up our 14th consecutive year!

If anyone wants to find out how to extact music from the BG series or Planescape do a google search on "acm to wav" and you'll have it.
