Well, whenever I have a deadline and really need to kick myself up a gear there's the Pacific Rim soundtrack.

One more video game soundtrack also makes me feel nostalgic for good old times, the FIFA series. EA puts a good mix together:

Be warned that some of these tracks are a bit NSFW so use headphones. Oh and don't listen to naughty music, kids!

Robert on Twitter says to listen to http://daveslounge.com/, which is very different from the soundtracks I'd mentioned.
