Just Us – by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross 

When I think of Reznor/Ross lately, I’m reminded of “In Motion” from their Academy Award winning score for The Social Network, the dark piano tones in “Hypomania” from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, or the slow building craziness of “Technically, Missing” from the Gone Girl…

Halcyon and On and On (by Orbital) 

This one takes me back to wandering the electronic music section of the Virgin Megastore Times Square, listening to random albums.. For me, the repetitive nature of electronic music helps me to relax and focus. Orbital’s Halcyon and On and On is a classic, having been featured in both the soundtracks for 1995’s  Mortal Kombat and Hackers (both of which have some great songs in their albums). The song is actually a mix of two others – It’s a Fine Day, by Opus III and Leave It by Yes. It also happens to be a longer version of the original song.

Enjoy!
