Quite simply the world's greatest film composer has passed away aged 91. 

Probably best known for amongst many others the  - A Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Once Upon A Time In The West, Once Upon A Time In America, The Mission, The Untouchables and Cinema Paradiso - the list goes on and on and on.

Any particular favourites ? Here's three of mine.

"Here's to You" (Sacco & Vanzetti)

Sentimental (I ... as in Icarus)

"The Strong" (The Good, The Bad & The Ugly)

Preferred John Barry for one but he did indeed write some classics.

I mind having a tape of this single. The charts were certainly different back then :-))

A lot of his very best work was done on Italian and French films that are seldom ever seen (with the exception of some "spaghetti westerns") in the Angloshpere. Check some of them out.

Main Theme (A Pistol For Ringo)

Nostalgia (The Prince of the Desert)

Main Theme (The Lady Caliph)

When it came to music that downright haunts you to the core, Morricone was the damn master.

I’d have given anything to be that talented at any one of those things never mind all three. Jammy bugger.
