Ok, I have this song (which I really love), and I'd like to know which spaghetti western it was from, the song is called The Wind In My Face.

Here are the lyrics to the most memorable parts

The Slow Intro (the lyrics are a little cheesy for my taste):

Ridin' with the wind in my face
Searchin' for the human race
Out on the road again
Fighting for the rights of men



And the Chorus (which I think has much better lyrics):

Woman, you're not a friend
Every time I come to you,
I find that you're changin' your mind.
Only when the chips are down
I'll finally come to trustin' your kind.

Those Dirty Dogs (aka "Charge!")


A film that ultimately could have been much better if Gianni Garko (who plays a muslim bounty hunter called "Koran") wasn't put on the sidelines. The very dull Stephen Boyd is painted as the hero but the audience really wants to see more Gianni!


A spin off with the Koran character would have been great! Maybe a whole series even!

I enjoy the title song as well.

The version I'm listening to must be a variation, it's slower and much better.

Do you have Sanjuro's spaghetti western disk?

I have the slower version myself but prefer the faster one heard in the film.

Arizona Colts review:-

CHARGE! was a fun little picture with Stephen Boyd and Gianni Garko although I was a bit disappointed that Garko was not the main character but then he probably chose the bounty hunter as he is the most interesting and funny character in the movie. He reads arabic as well as quoting from the Koran which is also his name here and he has several interesting weapons including an umbrella which doubles as a machine gun. Even though the female characters in spaghetti westerns are like the red shirts on the original STAR TREK, I was a bit surprised that the woman the 4 men were trying to rescue is killed at the end. All in all an enjoyable time killer and worth a look for any Garko fan. The source here was from fullscreen VHS and not the dvd from Japan. The quality is good.

Serious contender for best SW title ever (I won't go into explaining why) it is quite an original one, which only in the finale loses momentum.  Boyd is a army officer who must liquidate a mexican gang led by an half-mad austrian officer, helped by two other soldiers and by scout Garko, who dubs himself "Koran" and is often "quoting" from it. Boyd "sings" the title tune whose lyrics he furnished himself: it was good for him that he found his vocation in playing. Good rhythm, some good jokes, only in the final battle you don't have originality. 7\10 (maybe I would have given it more, but Gabriella Giorgelli shows her tits).
