S'Express, Zen.

Allied to Norman & Dub International's sampling of Morricone, here's some real road trip stuff: Soundtracks!

One for Seeds.

The Morricone in question.

One of my faves from Lalo Shifrin.

Ah The Big Country great movie
Once Upon a Time was awesome too. Morricone best of is on my iTunes. Dig it.
Always loved that from Dirty Harry. Never looked into the composer. Bit of info in the comments too on that one
Nice one

Now that’s way too good. Let’s get back on track. I’ve been waiting for someone to put up Johnny Farnham. Fuck I hate that guy and his music
Gotta be someone who digs him

S'Express- ha ha! There you go.

Morricone was a genius, a great loss. My wifey and I listen to bit of him on our road trips.

From a great movie.

Stanley Myers, another beautiful soundtrack.

No. Can't stand him either. Been listening to LRB, which come to think of it, fits this thread nicely, but NOT his involvement with them..

Great thread seeds!

George Michael Careless Whisper, there i said it.

I had no idea i liked this song until a few weeks ago, this random video came up in my YouTube feed(see below) and i got click baited in, then i soon realised i know this song not even sure how, but that melody almost makes your eyes water (actually i lied it did), after watching i thought fuck ive got to learn how to play this on guitar so I googled the song name with guitar tab, thinking it was probably some old 60s or 70s artist

And then up comes this, what the fuck it's George Michael?

Anyway i kind of had a tinker, but when the missus came home i stopped incases she knew who sang the song (just clicking on these videos, she asked me "what are you listening too?" in a voice that was like WTF?

The guitar tab video

Here is the click bait video that came up in my feed.

And the original
