Here's a whim: you get a group of friends together, roll some characters, set out in an adventure, and come across your first encounter with roving (bandits/goblins/something). What would be some great music for the DM to throw on?

I'm not thinking along the terms of "Don't Worry, Be Happy."

And I'm not thinking of having a DM who is there to guide the party to success or anything. Quite the opposite.

So, the background music of Samuel Barber's First Essay for Orchestra would be awesome. A nice, not-so-subtle hint that death is coming, and it's going to be horrible and disheartening.  :-0  Pant Evil

Any of Jeremy Soule's Elder Scrolls soundtracks (Skyrim may be his best, but there's a lot of really good stuff in all them I'm aware of). I bought the digital album(s), but I think you can still YouTube it--3ish hours of fantasy game soundtrack.
