Steampunk Playlist

These are some of my favorite, rousing, classical pieces, and movie scores that carry you forward majestically, or chill you with their haunting violins. There's also a fair bit of Celtic music, which to me is perfect steampunk - old-fashioned and simultaneously thrilling to our modern sensibilities.

This playlist lasts an hour. If you're looking for a whole night of Steampunk, I recommend select tracks from Rasputina, about half the tracks off the Requiem for a Dream soundtrack, and all of the Dracula soundtrack (the one recorded by Kronos Quartet to accompany the silent classic).

 Here's the tracklist at hand:

1. Southampton/James Horner
2. Carnival of the Animals: I. Introduction and Royal March of the Lion: Camille Saint-Saens/Barry Wordsworth and the London Symphony Orchestra
3. Carnival of the Animals: VII: Aquarium: Camille Saint-Saens/Barry Wordsworth and the London Symphony Orchestra
4. The Mirror/Michael Reisman and Philip Glass Ensemble
5. The Chase/Philip Glass
6. In the Time of Cholera/Antonio Pinto

10. The Kiss/Randy Edelman and Trevor Jones

13. An Irish Party in Third Class/Gaelic Storm
14. Mouth Music/Eddie Curran's Favorite/Dolores Keane & John Faulkner
