Best In-game music in an IOS game?

After playing robot unicorn attack- it is evident that the music is part of the er 'thrill' of the appeal of the game, and the same for cannabalt.

So who are your contenders of best ingame music?

Mine would be:
Cannabalt- 'run'
Robot unicorn attack- Erasure- 'Always'
And also: Little runner

Space miner and/or Reckless Racing.

In all seriousness, Bug Heroes music just rocks. As does Zen Bound 2's.

My uber awesome soundtracks list:

Canabalt- Retro-y, computery, yet energetic and complex, it's a great track that adds to Canabalt's intense, addictive, fast gameplay...

Zen Bound- More of an atmospheric jumble of fancy instruments, about half the feel of the classic game is generated by the bassy, windy music.

Eliss- This little-heard-of indie game boasts a relaxing yet cheerul, sad and nostalgic tune that gives a new deep perspective to it.

Space Miner- It's just a really fun collection of music, combining stereotypical Southern style banjo riffs and rock.

Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor- Considered when in came out in 2009 as the masterpiece of the iPhone, the cult classic comes with a really, really well done, creative and immersive soundtrack that is perfectly in sync with the whole artistic and mysterious feel of the Game of the Year. Muy bien.

Hurdle Turtle, Thumpies, Beat It!, So Long Oregon, Magnetic Shaving Derby, and for some reason I like the rock radio station in Driver.
Also, here's some non-iphone (hopefully going to be released for the iphone) music that's uber awesome (from Phoenix Wright 2): HERE

The opening of Ultrablast is an otherworldly quiet storm.

The best overall soundtrack is Temple Racer. Check it out here: http://soundcloud.com/temple-racer-soundtrack#play

Good thinking music to groove to...

Space Miner / Chaos Rings / Wesnoth / Monkey Island / Yipe! 5 (INSANELY retro, but I love it) / Osmos (perfect for its gameplay) / THPS 2 etc.

I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.
