Setting ambition as the theme for the first act makes sense. You could also look for music expressing the theme of fate, magic, and/or darkness for the first act of Macbeth.

I would have to add Monster by Skillet. In the song, the singer speaks about not really knowing who they are (given they know a monster lives inside them). This would be a great addition to wither the sleepwalking scene with Lady Macbeth or with Macbeth's soliloquy.

An idea sprung to mind for Act V. Here we have disappointment and the final effects of Macbeth's futile attempts to subvert the Divine Right of Kings. You Can't Always Get What You Want by The Rolling Stones came immediately in to my head.
