At any rate, a couple of months ago, I was missing that soundtrack (Morricone, not Hammer,) and was poking around the internet, and reading about Morricone and the music both. One of the things that caught my eye was the write-up about "The Ecstasy of Gold" because I didn't know that Metallica had covered it, and that weirdness - a score from a Clint Eastwood western being covered by a metal band, intrigued me. So I went poking around on YouTube to remind myself which piece that was.
It's here. Go ahead, I'll wait.
I remembered that bit as soon as I saw it, as well as the music. Then I went out and found a clip of Metallica playing it. I prefer the original, but whatever.
Not even a week later, I'm ignoring a Sprint commercial, and there it is. "The Ecstasy of Gold" is the background music. A couple of nights ago I'm ignoring a Modelo Especial commercial, and there it is. I seem to remember that Nike used it some years back.
Now that I'm looking for it, it's everywhere. Interesting. Now I want to binge watch the Dollars movies. And I should get a copy of "Kelly's Heroes." That one was fun.
