Honouring Ennio Morricone

A bit of art and leisure news, movie score composer Ennio Morricone received his Walk of Fame star. My brief editorial comment: it was about time. And he's not even retired, as he recently composed the score for The Hateful Eight. I adore his music. And to celebrate this well-deserved accolade from Hollywood, I have decided to upload here the main theme of the movie that started it all, A Fistful of Dollars. It is a sort of song, a minimalist one with only one line of lyrics: "We can fight." Maybe not his most lyrical or his most operatic, but still it takes your mind right in the middle of the action. Grazie maestro.
