You knew this one was coming, right? Seriously, no tribute to Ennio Morricone is complete without the main theme from The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.
Morricone’s score is as much of a character in this film as the ones played by Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach, and Lee Van Cleef. It perfectly sets the moods, telling us that we’re about to see something that is truly epic. The opening notes, which have so often been parodied but which have never lost their power, truly capture the feel of Sergio Leone’s mythical vision of the old west.
So, without further rambling from me, here it is:
