Is there a soundtrack to...

... "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai" by Michael Boddicker
No official one, just a series of bootlegs. According to Michael Boddicker himself, the first bootleg, the Gold Edition, actually contains two demos he did for a Honda commercial, music that wasn't in the movie at all! For the complete story go here.
... "Blade Runner" by Vangelis
... "Highlander" by Michael Kamen and Queen
... "The Keep" by Tangerine Dream

What's that music in this trailer?

Oftentimes, when the original music for a film has not been composed yet, the filmmakers or marketing people use music from other movies for their trailers. A list of which music was used for which movie can be found here. They also have a listing of studio logo music and who composed it, along with some QuickTime files to listen to. Amazing feature. 
Sometimes, original music is composed specifically for a trailer. The man to do this is John Beal. There is a fantastic double CD out with original music, composed specifically for trailers that is not available anywhere else. Check it out, you won't regret it.
For a more detailed listing of what music by the Media Ventures people was used in other trailers or promotions, go here. No idea, how he got that information.
