The Soundtrack Thread
« on: January 27, 2016, 13:14 »

Just wanted to share with you some of the best film scores/sountrack/film music in history because I've been in an Ennio Morricone mood for a few months by now. When I think of it, Ennio is 87 now (on his 88) and he's live in the Sportpaleis of Antwerp next month.  :o

However, the tune that is constantly in my mind now comes from his  *ar pupil Luis Bacalov: Il Grande Duello (Parte Decima). It really got me.

Also a great track of his is Tema per la chitarra from the Damiano Damiani film "El chucho, quien sabe?", the first Italian Zapata film. Spaghetti Western at its finest for me (soundtrack supervised by Morricone).

2015 will always be the year I discovered Bacalov's greatness.  :cool

Some lesser known tracks by Ennio Morricone includes Una Cascata Tutta D'Oro, from Jose Giovanni's film "Le ruffian" (starring Lino Ventura):

Then also from a Giovanni film starring Lino Ventura. The Main Theme of "Le rapace" ("Cuando Llega el dia") by François de Roubaix, featuring Los Incas:

May I ask you to share some really film music, meant to be written for a film and not some pop songs that have been recuperated for a film such as Roy Orbison's Pretty Woman, for instance.  ;)

    Kelly's Heroes still has my favorite soundtrack. Good ol' Clint Eastwood movies are still the best.

    Furthering the Eastwood thing, Lalo Schifrin is the man.
