Oddly enough I found the latest VGCats Flash music rather fitting

I've never had anything running but the standard classical guitar DF music.

Hundreds of hours, I'm still not sick of it.  It just fits the game so well.

Well, I have a few tracks that go with just about anything.
-Several Lemon Demon songs, including Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.
-Request-a-song songs, notably 'Violent House Panda' and 'Struck by a Bolt of Courdroy'
-'Brazil' for no good reason.
-'The Who' duh
-'4 short alcoholics wielding solid granite harps' not really
-'three dog night' rythmn' blues rock. Ok, so it's not really dwarfy

I was listening to this album once when playing DF, and this song came on when the goblins attacked. Now I'll always associate it with DF.

Glass Hammer: Dwarf and Orc

    Orc was crouched on the cavern floor
    And kept an eye on the oaken door
    For many a night he'd watched it close
    To see who might appear.
    Oh dear! See him leer?
    He's clutching a mighty spear!

    Orc was guarding a mighty stash
    And any who'd come he'd have to slash
    For stacked on high in the cavern behind
    Were kegs of goblin beer
    Oh dear! To his rear
    The Goblin King kept all his beer!

    Dwarf was thirsty as he crawled
    To the oaken door on the cliff face wall
    His nose had caught the scent of ale
    Oh what a sweet sensation.
    Elation! Fixation!
    He's found the Goblin's libation.

    Chorus:
    Dwarf and Orc
    A battle not worth telling
    Spear or cork
    With which should ye be assailing
    Just pop a dwarf on the head with a cork
    And see if his axe don't sing!
    Just take that axe upon yer skull
    And see if yer head don't ring!

    With his axe he smote the place
    But no surprise on the Goblin's face
    Whilst guarding he'd just helped himself
    And drank all the Goblin King's brew
    Oh boo! What to do?
    He's got himself into a stew!

    The door came crashing in on Orc
    Who'd traded his spear for a beer to uncork
    His drunken smile was soon replaced
    As Dwarven axe did cleave that face
    What a case - of disgrace
    The dwarf was king of the place

    So in the dark he felt around
    But nothing intact was to be found
    The bottles smashed, the kegs all dry
    The Orc had drunk the lot
    Found it not! Such a sot!
    And deserving of what he had got!

    Chorus:
    Dwarf and Orc
    A battle not worth telling
    Spear or cork
    With which should ye be assailing
    Just pop a dwarf on the head with a cork
    And see if his axe don't sing!
    Just take that axe upon yer skull
    And see if yer head don't ring!

It MIGHT go good with this,
or this,
or this,
or this,
or this,
or this.
But I really think the music it started with suits it best, it sets a mood and doesn't ever seem to get old.

Wait a sec... Is that... It can't be...

Nox!?

I so badly wish I hadn't lost my cd-key for that game.

Why yes, it is. I have always thought that Nox had beautiful music. Few people I know remember the game, you can't buy it anymore, but I think it is legally free now.

I had to put something there, or it wouldn't count as a video.

I either listen to the starting music or some midis set to loop from the old DOS game "Anvil of dawn".
