I'll see your earworm and raise you.

My buddy MattG has posted a tune from classical cinema.

Well,
I think it's classic.

Anyhoo, while banging around the Internet trying to get rid of the ensuing earworm I came across this:



It is, of course, the iconic score from
"The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" done by a group from England called The Spaghetti Western Orchestra.

Maybe I'm just a skosh strange, but I find this absolutely charming.

Brilliant yet bizarre! And clever.

Chad said...

Absolutely wonderful! Thanks for the link. I've got some of Morricone's stuff on my playlist, but this takes the cake.

More than a skosh... but that's why we all love ya.

Can't beat Ennio Morricone. Ecstasy of Gold is my fave of his.

One of my favorite movies.... and now I'll live with that score in my head for days.

Thanks.

I think.

I find myself somewhat reluctant to admit in public, yet feeling the necessity to do so, that I liked it!

That is what I'd have imagined the type of ingenuity found in Blue Man Group, had they been around about 100 years ago.

Checked out some of their other videos, too. Some of that stuff is quite moving.

I love that movie and that is one of my favorite scores. I have it set as my cell phone ring tone for when my father calls me. It has gone off a few times in a restaurants, much to the dismay of my fiance, all of the men love it, some making comments about how cool it is, some women like it too, but most of the women just give their husbands a "don't even think about it look".

Thanks for sharing that.

That's awesome.

I have a whole section of my video and music library labeled "Spaghetti". And it's not about pasta. :D

That was really neat.

now you've got me searching out ennio morricone spaghetti western themes and i'm gonna be up all night, and i'm still looking for the arrangement of "the garryowen" they used as ending music for one of john wayne's "7th cavalry" movies.
