Musically, Morricone's showdown themes were like the centrepiece of Leone's westerns. They all followed a similar pattern - slow, a build-up to a climax, soft strings coupled with noisy brass - but which was the best? My personal favourite is the one in For a Few Dollars More - the haunting pocket watch theme, and when the organ comes crashing in it's amazing. What does everyone else think?

For me its definitely Harmonica's Theme, it's just so dramatic and adds a great deal to the scene.

its gotta be harmonica because the music is just absoultely perfect and in complete pace with leone's direction - it is IMO Morricone's greatest piece with possible exception of mission soundtrack Cool
