I know the film has multiple themes throughout, but the music I'm trying to focus on here is the repeated "Sean, Sean, Sean" theme. When you first heard this, what was your initial reaction?

I voted "Didn't like it but gradually grew on me."

When I first heard it I thought: "Now il maestro went a step (or a few) too far :o", but that was when I only heard the music without the image. (I had bought a collection CD on which there were a few tracks from each of Leone's films.) So I had some prejudice when I first watched the movie, but I was very delighted to notice how much better it becomes with the image. Still, not my favorite Morricone.

Yeah moviesceleton. I gotta be honest. At first the "Sean, Sean, Sean"  track was a bit annoying but after awhile with repeated viewings, I fell in love with the music! I'm obsessed with it now. I think the initial listening to it shocked us all for the most part. The question is, did you like it though right off the bat. I for one, wasn't crazy about it but it grew on me, just like you MS!

Considering my chosen handle, I guess it's no surprise that this is my favorite soundtrack. I got the soundtrack right after my first viewing back in '71. Ruined two vinyls after repeated listening. Got the CD only last year.

Well, it's a quite famous music in France among people over 40. If you say "Ennio Morricone" to an adult, you are sure to see him to one of these in one second :
1) doing as if he was playing harmonica
2) screaming "Aeeeaaaeeeaaa!"
3) singing "Chom chom chom!" (because that's what french hear instead of "sean")
4) And mostly with younger people: "wait... did he do the music of the advertising for the food for dogs?" "yes, but that was in a movie, The Professional..." "You mean Asterix."

I loved the DYS soundtrack from the very start.  After repeated playings (just ask my kids), I still
haven't tired of this amazing music. I think I'm wearing out the cd though, if that
is physically possible. :P

Loved it from the start.  Same goes for every film he ever did with Leone...including "My Name Is Nobody."
