Today’s soundtrack selection goes to:
“The Ecstasy of Gold” – Ennio Morricone
Film: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
It’s a track that has re-defined how we view a Western thanks to Ennio Morricone. His work with director Sergio Leone added a new dimension to compliment Leone’s use of close-ups, harsh violence and black comedy. Because of this influence, it began to popularise the genre and The Ecstasy of Gold is a true gem fulfilled by its soul-stirring conclusion.
