Stellar composer, having a flim genre named after you is better than an Oscar imo.

He was old as motherfucking poo poo so I knew this was coming soon but drat, my favorite composer of all time, insanely prolific and his scores elevate the films they touched to a beyond transcendental level. Cinema Paradiso wouldn't have been the marvel it was without him and Sergio Leone was as much defined by Morricone's soundtracks as his own talent.

Rest in peace. He was so amazing.

Man with the Harmonica was written in the 60s' and was way ahead of its time. On a file sharing service I once saw it mislabeled as by Radiohead.

Edit: Swamp Booger Baby beat me to the punch by seconds with the exact same two songs. Whatever. That just proves they're awesome. Listen to them twice.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

Once Upon a Time in the West would have completely fallen apart without his score covering up the fact that Charles Bronson could not play the harmonica. He took the two notes that Bronson could blow and turned it into one of the best movies ever made

RIP. I watched Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion last night. It's a good dark satire of life during the Years of Lead and Morricone put a playfully demented score to it that complements it perfectly.

Agreed.

Came to post The Ecstasy of Gold, was pleasantly surprised I was thoroughly beaten.

And now he is for the ages.

I used to listen to the soundtrack to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly once every couple of weeks.
