Ennio Morricone was one of the defining composers of my upbringing and my childhood. I always find his soundtracks incredibly inspiring, even now so many years later.
His soundtrack to A Fistful Of Dollars has to be my fav soundtrack to any film ever, still.

Rest in peace Maestro, we will never cease to enjoy your wonderful music Smile

What is your favourite Ennio Morricone soundtrack ?

This is mine:

As far as I’m concerned, he defined the spaghetti western more than any director, actor, or cinematographer.

For a Few Dollars More is probably my favourite, I love the recurring theme for the pocket watch.

I happened to watch Two Mules For Sister Sara last night before hearing the news, the way he incorporated a donkey sound into this theme made me grin every time it played:

I've suggested a challenge if anyone wants to have a go at writing a tribute:

Metallica have been using The Ecstasy of Gold to walk out onto stage to for years!
