A Fistful Of Soundtracks, Sound Travels Italian Cinema

Sound Travels the world; and this week we're all about Italia as Festa Italiana gets going this weekend amid the hotness that has become Milwaukee's weather.  So tady I had a batch of Italian composers whose work I will not ignore...or at least didn't. From Ennio Morricone, of spaghetti western fame, having scored what seems to be a majority of them; to the godfather of not only Italodisco, but perhaps also electronic music, Giorgio Moroder. Also some throw-ins from Piero Umiliani and Nino Rota just for a fuller set. If you missed it, here's what I had today...

Ennio Morricone "The Man With The Harmonica" Once Upon A Time In The West

Nino Rota "The Godfather (Love Theme)" The Godfather OST

Piero Umiliani "Gangster's Song" La Legge Dei Gangsters

Giorgio Moroder "The Chase (Midnight Run)" Midnight Run OST

Piero Umiliani "Mah Na Mah Na"
