Guest, leeneia asked: "What's Morricone music?"
That was a short reference to music by Italian composer Ennio Morricone who rose to fame, at least for me, with his soundtracks of the "spaghetti" westerns in the 60s (Good, Bad & Ugly perhaps being the most recognized).
He has since gone on to composing for many other major films, most of which are nothing like the early work with western flavor.
His "sound" in most of the westerns has since led to homage being paid to him by a variety of musicians that are light-years removed in genre/style from Morricone's orchestral compositions. The one that leaps to mind right now is Metallica and the song "The Unforgiven" on their "Black" album; the intro of that song immediately calls to mind the Morricone music from the early westerns.
I think the reason my son sent me the link was that he knew I really like Morricone's earlier work and thought I'd get a kick out of that rendition.
