If you could assign music to the major races of the Stargate universe. What genre or song would you assign? What would be the sound of each one?

Tau'ri - rock, alternative
Ancient - epic scores
Asgard - electronic
Tok'Ra - chillout, relaxation
Goa'uld - war chant
Ori - choir
Wraith - heavy metal

If you can think of any other races, please do so.

I like that

Ancient - classical music?

Indeed. Classical for the Ancients. That would be cool. For example, Beethoven's Symphony no. 9 could be a preparation for war piece.

Hmmm, these are all classical, but... (there are links to YT in case you aren't familiar with these pieces! :))

Tau'ri - Presto from Vivaldi's "Summer" (from The Four Seasons) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjwwEg7-tuw)
Ancient - Andante Festivo by Jean Sibelius (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VRw9N9OlPo)
Asgard - "Sonnenaufgang" from Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a32AahqKsrw)
Tok'Ra - "Royal March of the Lions" from Camille Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1A7U8pZJgbI#t=0m57s)
Goa'uld - "Toccata" from Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTVraVgzC9U)
Ori - "Mars, the Bringer of War" from Holst's The Planets suite (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0bcRCCg01I&)
Wraith - "The Ride of the Valkyries" from Richard Wagner's Die Walk├╝re (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V92OBNsQgxU)

What about the Jaffa? I'd think something loud and bombastic, and proud, but also think that could be too obvious. They could also get a nice quiet, uplifting piece (sorry I can't think of any specific songs right now)

The Nox - some kind of new-agey, ethereal music. Like Enya, except even less structural.

Or like Zhaan's singing from Farscape, if anyone watches that.
