i have not seen the movie but i already own the soundtrack and i really dont like it.


is this a comedy? from the music it seems like it.
i dont like the farting stuff and the playfulness of the music.

I asume you mean 'March of the beggars'

It works for the scene. Juan keeps opening the gold vaults only to be presented with fleeing captive rebels.  The music intensifices as Juan get more desparate as the 'penny slowly drops' that Mesa Verde is not bank in the conventional term, but is now a make shift prison.

In my opinion, the music to all of Leone's movies is a huge reason why they are all so great.  I dare say if it wasn't for Ennio Morricone, I might not have ever posted in this forum.  A Fistful of Dynamite is no exception.  I love the quirky jazzy music in the flashback scenes.  Really strange, but totally wonderful at the same time.  It sort of reminds me of the music that Burt Bacharach wrote for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.  (And the Butch Cassidy soundtrack kind of reminds me of OUATITW).

As for the score to OUATIA, I think it's so good that it sort of saved the movie for me.  My first reaction after seeing it was that I wasn't to sure how much I liked it, but the music was one thing I was sure about.

I must say that i have to agree with JB.Ennio Morricone holds one very big key to the greatness of not only Leones westerns but also many other SW's made by his contempories.
Can you imagine FAFDM without the pocket watch theme,GBU without the Ectasy of Gold or OUATITW without Harmonica's theme?

Extactly Banjo, an integral part of the films. Its always been a complete mystery why nobodys done a isolated score track on a Leone DVD release.

Well, the singer doing the Run, Man, Run song at the beginning isn't very good, but that's not Morricone's fault.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

yes he mentions it on a bonus(easter egg) interview in the DJANGO KILL dvd.

with an ego the size of MILIAN'S the band was naturally called.....THE TOMAS MILIAN BAND! Grin

I thought I had seen it on the easter egg. He's a funny guy  Grin. I loved the bit where hes talking about how he told the taxman about everything he owned!  Grin

There's an easter egg on the DVD?-will have to look for this!
Dave Jenkins,i think its a great performance by Milian on the Run Man Run title track and its fitting that he performs it.He may not be the best of singers,but my favourite artists can't sing for toffee either -Dylan,Neil Young,Lou Reed,John Lydon-but they have their own distinct twangs.There's nothing worse than a trained voice-who wants to sound like everybody else?
Milian sings from the heart,in his own voice,and with attitude-what more do you want?
