In particular you may like:

Black Host by William Bolcom for Organ, Chimes, Cymbals, Bass Drum.

Black Angels by George Crumb. In this piece Crumb meant for the violin to embody the devil’s music, and cast the cello as “the voice of God.”

Batdance by Prince in 19890 released Batdance  a fun song surrounding the symbol of Batman  

The Battle on the Ice (Movement 8 ) (Theme song from Alexander Nevsky) by Sergei Prokofiev The score for the 1938 Sergei Eisenstein film Alexander Nevsky. It represents the final clash between Nevsky’s forces and the Teutonic Knights on the frozen surface of Lake Peipus in 1242.

The Blob was sung by The Five Blobs, a group of studio musicians that were assembled in Los Angeles, California in 1958 for the sole purpose of recording this ONE song for the full length feature film The Blob staring Steve McQueen.  The song was written by Burt Bacharach and Mack David.

Begräbnisgesang (Funeral Hymn) by Brahms was written in 1858, two years after the death of Robert Schumann. It is theorized the memory of Schuman is behind the piece.

There are no flutes or trumpets, Brahms instead opting for the darker tones of oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns, trombones, and tuba.  He also includes timpani plays a very large role.
