I remember hearing a song from something called "Even If I Wanted to Work, What Would I Do?" (or something like that) which was a very bizarre track using the same "wop" noise used in DYS. I haven't heard it in like six years but it's still stuck in the back of my mind.

Yeah, but reminds me too much of Navajo Joe's main theme.

I liked his work in "The Hellbenders."

I also think his work in "Casualties of War" is some of the best he's ever done, but it often doesn't come up.

I have a 1973 (2?) record album titled Ennio Morricone Un Film Una Musica which has many title tracks that I like very much such as METELLO, COSA AVETE FATTO A SOLANGE?, UCCELLACCI e UCCELLINI, MADDELINA, IL MAESTRO e MARGHERITA, SACCO e VANZETTI and others that will probably be more recognisable to some of us here as it goes into Western and Crime territory.

His Giallo score for BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA is also a favorite. I like the girl's moans in the title track very creepy and sensual.

I've been meaning to check out the Morricone/Baez collaboration SACCO AND VANZETTI having sampled two wonderful sampler tracks on a Morricone compilation.Baez topical lyrics and soaring but pure pitch perfect vocals,not to mention Morricone wonderful orchestrations,really makes me want to see the movie too. :)

From Netflix, I got a movie called A Lizard In A Women's Skin. A Lucio Fulci movie. Morricone did the score, which was one thing I liked about a movie I didn't. It wasn't amazing, but interesting.

What counts as a lesser known work?

Ever since hearing "Nuddu" from Il Belissimo Nevembre (I hope I wrote the title right - and at first I thought it was from Great Silence, because it's on the same album), I think that is my favourite. :)

(And, look, this is my first post in the new section!)

Been listening to different stuff lately.  Just kind of pulling it from the shelf.  I pulled the Disclosure soundtrack and have listened to it a few times in the last week.  I really liked the Serene Family, title track, when I saw the film for the first time.  Film itself is not very memorable.  The soundtrack has a bit more electric pieces I guess due to the film's subplot about computers and technology.  Some serious bass on some of the tracks as well.  The strings on Serene Family are just classic Morricone.  Anyone listen to this one often or really like it?


Title: Re: Your favourite Morricone's lesser known works
Post by: J B on October 08, 2007, 11:42:08 AM
La Califfa, L Uccello dalle Piume di Cristallo, Metti Una Sera a Cena, Veruschka, and Orca.  I haven't seen any of these movies, but you really don't have to to appreciate the music.  Orca is supposedly a crappy Jaws rip off, but I can't get over how amazing the music is.  It's hard to imagine such amazing music written for a bad movie, but I suspect a lot of these movies aren't that great.

A few other scores of note from movies that I've actually seen are U-Turn, The Thing, and Days of Heaven.  By the way, Days of Heaven is just about the most beautiful movie I've seen, and Morricone's music is matches the films beauty perfectly.  It's a lot more subtle than his more famous scores.

Also, you guys should check out his rejected score for What Dreams May Come.  I strongly suspect that if it had been used, that movie would have a much better reputation.

  Imagine it, my friend.  ;D  Really horrible movie, entertaining nonetheless, but the music from Morricone is maybe the only bright spot.  Even one of my faves, Richard Harris, seems to be lost here.

  If you can rent it or find it cheap, maybe less than $10, its worth it.  It's a bad movie, but it is entertaining.  Definitely qualifies as "It's so bad, it's good" type movies.  The music is excellent though and makes it worth watching.  It's never a good sign though when you're rooting for the Orca to win by the end.  ;D

 I watched Days of Heaven last night and it definitely qualifies as one of my new favorite lesser known Morricone scores.  I went into the movie not knowing Morricone did the score, but it was just another plus in a good movie.

Ennio's score for Battle of Algiers is poignant and heart-breaking, as well. I found a version of the main theme on Rhapsody and it pretty much drove me to tears. :'(

You're supposed to root for the Orca. Harris is the bad guy here. Unwittingly, but the bad guy nonetheless at least until he fathoms what he did to the family of whales what the drunk driver did to his own family. Brilliant music as already mentioned. The score has been available for years. And this movie has more in common with MOBY DICK than JAWS although it's often mistakenly compared with the latter. Love this movie and Harris vehemently defended it upon its theatrical release. Not sure why he gets slack for his performance as he goes from being a confident and arrogantly stubborn fisherman to a tortured shell of a man who seems to want to die for all the harm his actions cause over the course of the film.

I never watched Allonsanfān but heard it on various other occasions, never been a fan though.

may i introduce you all to my favorite obscure morricone score. this is for a film called LE SECRET starring jean louis trintignant. I find it amazing that Morricone's work for this film is not better known. It is among his best. The title track - Il Segreto starts off like it could enter Un Uomo Da Rispettare territory with the sounds of water drops trickling, followed by a dissonant sound. But there is soon a melodious piano and it is beautiful when the violin kicks in. Dal Mare has Edda Del Orso (?) starting off slowly and seductively and building up to a crescendo. It is as good as the title track. The whole soundtrack has a menacing feel to it, yet is is very melodious. I watched the movie and it was very good. recommend the movie stronly.

morricone's score for COPKILLER (not the one you have heard in the greatest hits). this is a better tune. this is sensational for a title score. please listen to it many times before commenting or i will be very upset :). the trumpets, pianos and one other instrument over the continuous bass drone is amazing. the film starring harvey keitel and johnny rotten is also quite interesting.

the title score for LE CASSE (a wonderful luxurious and opulent big budget thriller which i strongly recommend though it flags in the second half). ASTRUD GILBERTO's voice is perfect for this. recommend the whole score. it has many good tunes. i present two tunes from this score. if you dont like them, then i dont know what to say to you  :P.

morricone's epic sweeping score for LA SCONOSCIUTA. the score is comparable to CINEMA PARADISO. both films directed by TORANTORE.

Morricone has scored every Tornatore film apart from his very first one. Every single score has been absolutely incredible. After Leone, Tornatore has definitely been the recipient of most of Morricone's best work and, since Tornatore's made more films than Leone ever did, more of it.

novocento, MORRICONE also collaborated frequently with ELIO PETRI. they did some great work together.

but you could be right about Tornatore.

There's a nice list here of his collaborations with directors:

What's amazing about the Tornatore collaborations is simply how good they are. Some directors like Leone and Tornatore really seem to have consistently received the very best of Morricone.

There are several "kinds" of Morricone. The three main ones, to me are:

1 - The music he does for Tornatore is Morricone at his most "regular". The tunes are romantic and often powerful, the arrangements are utterly traditional: this is regular orchestral music. That's the stuff he does kind of effortlessly I think since he's often turning to these kinds of compositions even for others (The Professional, 1900...). Some of these musics are corny and some of these are great, for some reason Tornatore got most of the best ones.

2 - The more dated stuff that was experimental at the time and was influenced by concrete music, with a variable amount of lyricism. They were used in thrillers, horror films and cops/robbers stories, often by European directors.

3 - The Battle of Algier kind of Morricone, that I wouldn't know how to describe.

Depending on the movie, Leone got pieces from the three kinds of Morricone, usually great ones. In OUATITW and DYS, he got a mix of the three, and that's when I find Ennio's work absolutely powerful. The only thing that Leone didn't get is the Morricone from the 80's-90's Hollywood stuff (Frantic, Disclosure...), which is cool because it usually sucks.
