Song of the Day: Main Theme From An Investigation Of A Citizen Above Suspicion by Ennio Morricone


Well, we’re starting in on the final week of our tribute to Ennio Morricone so today, I want to share one of his most important compositions.

The 1970 film, Investigation Of A Citizen About Suspicion, was a dark satire about police corruption and murder in Italy.  It was not only critically acclaimed but it also won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.  (That award is now known as Best International Film.)  The success of this film showed that Morricone was more than just a composer of epic Western themes and it also introduced his music to a whole new group of filmgoers.

Here is Morricone’s Main Theme From Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion:
