That song is The Ecstasy Of Gold,written by Ennio Morricone. The Metallica band has been playing that as their intro music for about 40 years man. Every fucking show.:yah:dude:

In general, the entire dollar trilogy deserves top marks. Simply incredible music by Ennio Moricone, brilliant direction by Sergio Leone and ... Clint Eastwood! The heroes of the dollar trilogy performed by Eastwood were the idols of my childhood.

Fantastic music, loved since it I was a kid, still have the vinyl in my collection! He's not playing vintage strat, just an old looking strat but you can't expect a pro guitarist for the DNSO to afford a fifties strat...
I do wonder if the original was played on a strat, somehow it sounds off to me. I wouldn't be surprised if it was played on some Italian guitar...

On the night a plane crashed into my neighborhood, I was watching the film, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. One of the compositions, The Story of a Soldier, brings back memories of pain and screaming. It was almost like the aftermath of a terrible battle.


Morricone was a brilliant composer, in the same league as Bernard Herrman. When a composer can evoke the emotion and poignance of these artists, it is music at its purest.

Fantastic. Thanks for sharing.
The Jill theme from Once Upon A Time In The West is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written, not just for a film.

There is a version done by a ukulele orchestra that is simply amazing.
I’ll try to find it

The music in this movie is really cool!
I also really like the music from the Lord of the Rings movie. It is epic, beautiful, attractive. Music only makes movies more exciting and exciting. In the case of the Lord of the Rings movie, music just played its role in all its glory. In some episodes, she made me cry. I haven't cried over any other film before watching this movie. I was shocked by this. Also, for me, this is an indicator of a great movie.

I studied this movie in film class back in the 70's, and the way Leone cuts from panoramic landscape shots and moves all the way in to extreme close-ups of the faces is masterful! Both the landscape and the music are almost characters in the film lending the story emotional nuance and texture!
