The 'Newsreel' source cues do a wonderfully malignant job of decimating the reverent, almost liturgical, ghostly, positively transfixing atmosphere concocted for the Christopher Young score that is MURDER IN THE FIRST!

Exactly...they're well-written cues, but they stick out like a sore thumb on the CD. They should have been grouped together at the end.

I hate that ragtime source cue on Goldsmith's Players soundtrack...and you can't skip over it, as it's melded to a traditional score cue.

"Il Serpente" by Morricone has a military parade track - at nearly 5 minutes - right in the middle.

This is a fun number in the film, but the context is bizarre: Tom Tryon, his brother, and his sister's boyfriend are at the theater waiting for Ramon's act to see if Tryon's runaway sister (Carol Lynley) is still part of it. But they have to sit through Robert Morse and the Adore-a-belles first! I wish Preminger had thrown in a reaction shot of the three of them in the middle of this number with stricken, "Really? REALLY??" looks on their faces.

You know, I can deal with one or two saloon piano cues in a whole Italian Western score CD. But a whole CD of nothing but those cues?
That's masochism.
I salute you...you're a brave man. wink


What about American westerns?
An endless loop of "Coming Round the Mountain" "I dream of Jeanie", "On top of Old Smokey"....
Pure hell!

Are there any (I'd be surprised if there were none) such mood-busters on Kritzerland's TWO FOR THE ROAD and Intrada's DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES? Santa needs to know pronto.
