    Ennio Morricone died

    My favourite soundtrack from my favourite movie

    Ennio Morricone: Oscar-winning Italian film composer dies aged 91

    Ennio Morricone, the Italian composer whose credits include the "spaghetti" Westerns that made Clint Eastwood a star, has died in Rome aged 91.

    According to Italian news agency Ansa, he died in hospital having fractured his femur in a fall some days ago.

    The prolific composer also wrote music for Once Upon a Time in America, The Untouchables and Cinema Paradiso.

    Having received an honorary Oscar in 2007, he went on to win one in 2016 for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

    Morricone, who was simply known as "Maestro" in his home town of Rome, scored more than 500 films over seven decades.

    The prolific composer's credits included the "spaghetti" Westerns that made Clint Eastwood a star.

      I'm the only person I know who has the soundtrack to "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" in his mp3 player. Ecstasy Of Gold is my favorite.

      I liked Eddie Murphy's reference to it in Delirious, early 80s.
      Never heard the soundtrack of the G, B & the U, that would be cool.

    That's what people do in the end :P

    I have a lot of his soundtracks on mp3 (and Once upon a time on LP), I even listened to the Good, bad and Ugly one too much haha. I have more spaghetti western soundtracks than I have watched spaghetti westerns :-D and so also can't pick an absolute favourite in general or of Morricone specifically. Love this genre, partially because of its typical and above average soundtracks

                  this is the first i hear of his death

                  genius composer

                  he composed so many good themes for westerns (he went to school with Sergio Leone) ....and a few for tv





                      Soundtrack - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
                      mother moon -she's calling me back to her silver womb,
                      father of creation -takes me from my stolen tomb
                      seventh-advent unicorn is waiting in the skies,
                      a symptom of the universe, a love that never dies!
