I really do like OUTIA music even though its my least favourite film.  This should be done as a poll btu I don't know how to start one.

great great great score.... but i can't choose between OUATIA, OUATITW and GBU... those scores are SO perfect...

There is only ONE point against OUATIA's music: the remix of yesterday. Could have been great. But it's awfull. What a shame, knwowing that this moment is very moving in the movie: noodles coming back to NY after so many years...

Not to sure which is the greatest. Deborah's Theme from OUATIA proberly comes close to the absolute.

Giu La Testa (Fistful Of Dynamite) is my all time favourite Leone one. Ive got a French RCA LP.á Like how he fused that Spaghetti Western style with more of a modernist, even psychedelic idea.
Theres a track called 'Invention For John' its my all time favourite Morricone track. Hardly used in the film, well not as a full piece. shame really. That and 'Remember' are wonderful tracks.
Proberly listen to the soundtrack fanaticly for about a year before seeing it put to images.

I like the 1969/72 era.
ill Gatto a Nove Code (1970) soundtrack is a good one. More Improvised, modernist jazz ideas.
Che Centriamo Noi Con La Rivoluzione (1972)á Has that twilight melancholy feel that My Name is Nobody and Giu La Testa seem to revolve around. Itá only consists of 3 different compositions, just with a slight different arrangement, instrument and mood.
Like the way OUATITW works. Nice spanish guitar plucking.
I heard rumours that he had hand 100 film soundtracks in the space of 3 years
(Most with Bruno Nicolai Conducting) in this period. Amazing output

ooh tricky, but id say The Mission just edges OUATITW and OUATIA though Leone's use of Morricone's score is always superior.

OUTITW by far. Harmonica's theme, Frank's theme, Jill's theme, Cheyenne's theme, etc. they're so different and unique from eachother and are perfect for the characters they're for.

GBU comes in at a close second.

Must admi to liking OUATIA's best. Have it constantly playing in the car but this is closely followed by OUATITW's soundtrack.

GBU for me.

Ive gotta give a mention to the love theme from Guns of San Sebastian, angelic, soothing quality work from the Maestro.

Although I love all of the music in OUTIA,

I sometimes hear an echo in my head.. its Jill's song from OUTIW.

Jill's song must be the best single piece of music that have ever been played in a  Film.

Got to say that Leone was right when he said 40% of the movie is music, the music made Leone's film masterpieces.

Though I haven't actually seen the movies, I quite enjoy the music for "Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion" and "Quemada!"

All-time favorite is definitely OUATITW, though this and GBU come close.

Geeze.....
What a tough one to call. I love all of the above so much.
As for a Leone/Morricone scrore, my vote goes to Gi¨ la testa. I just recently, was able to put my 70's vinyl copy to rest. Sizzling bacon and all. Thanx to Warwick from this board, I found the CD.
But my all time top Morricone score is Cinema Paradiso. I also love The Untouchables.
I just can't get enough of Morricone. I replay his music all the time.

I stumbled upon this site while searching the web for someone, some people, a webgroup even, that had come to the conclusion that Deborah's Theme is the most moving, happy/sad, inspiring, sobering, thought provoking, tuneful, anthemic...piece of music that existed. Morricone excelled himself then, in my opinion.

I am not particularly a Sergio Leone fan, as I said I just stumbled upon this site and had to registerá to give my opinion in this particular thread, because of my, well I suppose it's an obsession now, fascination with Deborah's Theme.

I play it endlessly sometimes and never get bored. Music is a wonderous thing.

So I guess I've given you my tuppence worth.

I hope to stick around long enough to read other thoughts.
