Western movie themes are the soul of the western movies.
And this soul has been so beautifully infused in western cinema by western film music composers like Ennio Morricone, Dimitri Tiomkin, Victor Young, Elmer Bernstein and Dominic Frontiere, that time could never fade it. These western movie themes are as compelling and touching as they were years back. The ‘touch’ is always there.
Most-Wanted-Western-Movies.com presents the list of best western movie themes of all time.
Let’s start from Top to Bottom!
1. A Man With Harmonica ( Once Upon A Time In West -1968) by Ennio Morricone
Nothing gives my spine a chill as this sound of harmonica with eco effects composed by the master himself – Ennio Morricone. Once Upon A Time in West (1968) is not only remembered for it classic Sergio Leone touch but also for this western movie theme which intensifies the extreme close-ups used by Sergio Leone. I rate this single track from Once Upon A Time In West as the best western film score.
2. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1966) by Ennio Morricone
This western movie soundtrack is recognizable from a mile, such a unique piece of western film music from Ennio Morricone. This iconic theme was designed in places to mimic the sound of crying hyena. The shades of on screen drama are remarkably supported by background theme. Western soundtrack of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly gets as sharp as Blondy, as mean as Angel Eyes and as sarcastic as our favorite Tuco. In one word.. It is magnificent!
