Ecstacy of Gold in Nike commerical and in trailer for "Australia" (but not in the film).
GBU theme in trailer for "Marley & Me", just saw that trailer tonight..

hi guys,
just to clear this up..........

the original soundtrack motif, ay-ee,ay-ee, ahhhh!, is to my ear, a mix of someone screaming a one single pitch and another screaming the actual motif.
also there's a lot of distortion (audio overload) and reverberation added, but it's different each time.
those days, audio was very basic and you couldn't do computer stuff like cut and paste.

This was a top 40, was in a Eastwood movie (Any Which Way You Can) but what the people are laughing about?

The GBU quote is the only good thing, as far as I can hear.

hi guys,
just watched 3:10 to yuma on the ever wonderful youtube.

and lo and behold, the main theme has a GBU quote at the very beginning.
you have to be quick to hear it, and it's covered a little by other instruments but it's there.
only the first couple of notes and they're on a whistle of some sort.

Have you seen the movie? Ecstasy of Gold isn't used in the film itself, just the trailer. It does pay a large degree of homage to OUATITW (among other films), but I don't see that as an inherently bad thing.

HuhHuh

come live here, and you'll soon get my point.

and that is, we no longer have a film industry or music industry.
multi-national have bought this place out, and there is no such thing as Australian art any longer.

thought this homage was interesting.

start vid at the 4:10 mark

the wonder years is about as honest of a portayal of the growing up process as a big network show can let it be (this sentence is awkward, my apologies). I recently saw this episode and forgot about the GBU reference, thought it worth sharing. I tried searching for the GBU reference thread but couldn't find it, so I had to make a thread.

sorry for the pun, they suck.

This is the thread.  Good addition, nice homage.

at this year's Major League Baseball All-Star Game, Fox had a little piece on Yasiel Puig called The Good, the Fun, and the Puig. They don't actually use the GBU music I guess they didn't wanna pay for it so you can hear other music (I assume newly composed) that is obviously inspired by both the main theme of GBU as well as the Ecstasy of Gold. I recorded it cuz I figured some of you fags who don't watch baseball might still wanna see it
