    Tracks of the Week: Soundtracks

    Ennio Morricone "Cavallina a Cavallo" - Everyone's heard the main title from "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" with its curious combination of whistling, electric guitar, piccolo trumpet, and grunting men. It's the ultimate showdown music. What you may not know is that Morricone scored over 500 films during his long prolific career including this track from the 1979 Italian-Japanese production "Dedicato Al Mare Egeo" (Dedicated To The Aegean Sea). Slip this song into the Barbarella soundtrack and no one would ever be the wiser. Buy It.

    Soundcard "Thula" - OK, so this isn't from a real soundtrack. This track is lifted from Blip, Bleep (Soundtracks to Imaginary Video Games). Lucky Kitchen is a small independent music label out of Barcelona, Spain that released initially only 746 copies of "Blip, Bleep" back in 1998. I did a little dance when I finally got ahold of this compilation - #116 of 746. It's spectacularly funny. This track in particular is dancey and fun. Imagine yourself in an Indiana Jones-style adventure game. Out of print.
