AKA Jills Theme vs. the GBU main theme.

I'm definitely a sucker for his more sentimental work.

I wouldn't say Ecstacy is sentimental, and Sean Sean Sean ...both?

  I like both, but his more sentimental stuff sticks with me longer.  One of my favorites that doesn't come up a ton is Morton's theme in OUATITW.  Both scenes with that music are just so beautiful, thanks to Morricone and Ferzetti pulling it off so well, especially his death scene.

   SPOILERS          SPOILERS         SPOILERS (I don't think I need to warn, but The Great Silence ending is coming)






  Also, the end of The Great Silence.  That brief moment when Silence is shot and he's backlit, great little piece of Morricone's score.  Just tears me up inside.  Cry

I would definitely put Cheyenne's theme in the sentimental category, if that's what we're calling it.

I'm a sucker for the prettier themes, but I basically like all of Ennio Morricone's music, and part of what makes him great is that he's able to write in so many different styles while still having a distinct sound.

I'm a minority, but I'll have to go for non sentimental. While the sentimental stuff is good (OUATiA has my second favorite score), stuff like GBU has always kept me entertained.

I'd probably have to go with Morricone's sentimental stuff over the non, even though EVERYTHING is brilliant as a whole. Morricone is one of those few composer's that can stir up your emotion's to the limit's. His sentimental stuff is beautiful.

Agreed TB. I often wonder how Morricone maintains such an edge. After so many years
and so many scores you would think he would run out of musical notes. Is there
 a common theme in his music that makes most of his pieces so enjoyable, even after
listening to them many times over?

You bring up an interesting question geo about Morricone's score's over the years. He's composed countless themes and most of them have a unique element all in their own. He's a genius, no doubt about it.

  You're right, there is something unique in almost all of his scores, but you're still always able to tell you're listening to a Morricone score!  That is applicable to most really good composers I guess.  Smiley

Exactly! That's why I think Ennio is the most unique and innovative composer ever.

Well, I like all stuffs. He always found the best for the situation.  Afro


My favourite is the pocket watch music with the guitar and the organ. I just love organ. It's so monumental.

I've always loved sentimental themes.
