The Ecstacy of Morricone

How can you not love it when this man makes music?

And if you've not seen Once Upon a Time in the West, it should be on your bucket list.


  1. That was absolutely new to me!

    Every day, I learn.


  2. The soundtrack of The Mission is unbelievable. Morricone is a genius.

  3. Yes! One of the greats!
    My fave movie of all time:
    "Once Upon A Time in America" an epic that got butchered and exists in several versions. rarely show on TCM. Like War & Peace: an epic over decades, complex enough to linger in your mind and to reward repeated viewings.
    you touched me where I live with this post, you wily ink monkey you!
    Aloha, Friend!

    Comfort Spiral

  4. Cloudia just called you a wily ink monkey :)))

  5. The Mission is one of my favourite theme tracks of his too.
