I'm trying to locate a song that seems pretty popular over the years as being inserted here and there into tv shows or little spots as a western sounding tune.  It's currently the theme song for the PS2 game "Red Dead Revolver".  To hear the song, you can go to the Red Dead Revolver website right here:

http://www.rockstargames.com/reddeadrevolver/RDR.swf

I'm sure it's by Ennio Morricone and in one of the Sergio Leone films, I just sure can't figure out what movie.  If anyone could go to that site and listen to the song, and identify the name of it for me I would GREATLY appreciate it.

For those who are too lazy to go to the website, the best way I can describe the song is, it starts off with just a guy whistling for the first very short verse.  The next verse is the same thing, except it's a trumpet.  It's a slow paced showdown type song with a very soft guitar strumming in the back.  Other than that, it's just the whistling, then the trumpet.  

Thanks a lot guys.

From the credits of the game, this is the only Morricone music in it:
"Main Titles"
by. E. Morricone, taken from 'E Per Tetto Un Cielo Di Stelle'

It's not from a Sergio Leone movie, it's from some other western.
I have not confirmed that it's that music, it might not even be Morricone music on the site.

The theme is from Il Pistolero dell'Ave Maria (The Forgotten Pistolero). The composer is Roberto Pregadio, not Ennio Morricone.

FROM IMDB............

"The Forgotten Pistolero, which borrows a little from Hamlet, is a well-told story, with excellent production values, and enough great western/Mexican atmosphere to go around.
  The imitation Ennio Morricone score by Roberto Pregado is pretty swell too."

This is weird, I'm pretty sure this was mentioned on the board before, the solution I mean. Because I know that site and that song.

There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.
