I'm trying to locate a song that seems pretty popular over the years as being inserted here and there into tv shows or little spots as a western sounding tune.  It's currently the theme song for the PS2 game "Red Dead Revolver".  To hear the song, you can go to the Red Dead Revolver website right here:

http://www.rockstargames.com/reddeadrevolver/RDR.swf

I'm sure it's by Ennio Morricone and in one of the Sergio Leone films, I just sure can't figure out what movie.  If anyone could go to that site and listen to the song, and identify the name of it for me I would GREATLY appreciate it.

For those who are too lazy to go to the website, the best way I can describe the song is, it starts off with just a guy whistling for the first very short verse.  The next verse is the same thing, except it's a trumpet.  It's a slow paced showdown type song with a very soft guitar strumming in the back.  Other than that, it's just the whistling, then the trumpet.  

Thanks a lot guys.

Its not Morricone.. Itís a very good bastardization of his themes.
The tune is called  'Forgotten Pistolero' by Franco Micalizzi. (Theme from the film of the same name) The tune more or less is public domain. The opening guitar & whistle can be heard every from TV ads to programmes to sum up all things Spag.

The Mercenary Theme is alot more trad mexican / mariachi horn romp. Like 'A Bullet For The General.'

I just broke out THE MERCENARY soundtrack and played it, alternating with the RED DEAD REVOLVER music. The two are very, very similar -- particularly the track from IL MERCENARIO called "L'Arena," but The Smoker is correct. They are NOT the same.

There is one obscure Morricone track included in this game, but the main theme heard on that website is actually "Ballata per un Pistolero", the title theme from IL PISTOLERO DELL' AVE MARIA, composed by Franco Micalizzi and Roberto Pregadio.

I have been trying for some time to find out which track plays during the title sequence, the Annie Stoakes level, and briefly before the final showdown with the Governor in Red Dead Revolver. Does anyone know?
