Today’s song of the day comes to use from Ennio Morricone’s score for Umberto Lenzi’s 1974 giallo Spasmo.
As I was listening to this music, I took a few minutes to think about all of the directors with whom Morricone worked over his career. Sergio Leone, Dario Argento, Quentin Tarantino, Roland Joffe, Sergio Corbucci, Umberto Lenzi, Terrence Malick, Lucio Fulci, Mario Bava, Don Seigel, John Carpenter, Brian DePalma, Franco Zefferelli, Barry Levinson, and so many more, all of them collaborated with Morricone. His music brought to life the work of so many artists. That’s certainly the case with Spasmo.
From Ennio Morricone, this is Spasmodicamente.
