For me it's really a fight between GBU and OUATiA. The other score's are excellent, but don't have as much of a lasting impression on me. Anyways I had an impulse and voted for GBU.

America. Easy.

None of the other scores contribute as much to the film as in America.

It really is a tough run: the score for the first two dollars films are great and no one's voted for them. That's how good the other scores are. Or maybe it's that not many ppl have voted yet.

They're all great in their own unique way. Some of them are legendary though.

I find some of his non Leone work to be better then FoD and FAFDM. The Mission, for example.

The Mission has a couple brilliant pieces in that score but it doesn't compare to his Leone Film Scores in my opinion. Maybe it's better than "A Fistful of Dollars" but that's it in my humble opinion.

I had to vote for The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly,it had more music, and I found it had an edge over Once Upon a Time in the West.

OUATIA

I was watching an Australian Soap on TV recently and the music from OUATIA was playing on my PC.
It Improved it 100%.

Conversely I was watching a OUATIA video on Youtube which had Tony Bennett's "The Good Life"
instead of Morricone's music.  Initially I thought it was awful but full of irony.  After a few viewings
it does grow on you and the words do have some relevance and poignancy to the action on screen
but it does not compare with the depth of feeling that Morricone's music made to the movie.

GBU's score is the most well known. I can't believe it didn't get nominated for an Oscar.

None of the dollars trilogy hit american theatres until 1967, so this film would've been too late anyway.

Yeah, still it doesn't help that at the time (1967), they were ridiculed as cheap productions by the critics. Good thing that didn't stop ppl from going, anyways.

If you don't, just remember that when you get your fourth star we might start considering your opinion.
