Music – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

A longish piece, this, lasting a little over ten minutes. After the opening minute or so, there's some mildly discordant stuff – deliberately setting the tone.

This is followed by a section that, at four minutes or so in, includes a motif that Morricone re-used many years later in the lovely film Mission to Mars. If you've seen that movie you'll spot it here straight away, I promise! (Think: Gary Sinise going up the tube at the end.)

 There are a few of the well-known themes from this movie, though, in the second half of this piece, culimnating in that most famous theme of all from these so-called "Spaghetti movies"...
