Title: Cheyenne - The Greek
Post by: Poggle on September 06, 2005, 07:18:28 PM
When I first saw OUATITW what jumped out at me upon hearing Cheyenne's theme was that it sounded more Greek than anything Latin based or Southern/Western, minus the whistling. I jokingly called him "The Greek" for a while.

Did anyone else here get that impression upon first hearing it? I'm not as familiar with Italian or Hispanic/Mexican music as I am with Greek music and it sounds like a lot of the Greek music I'm familiar with.
