Ennio Morricone’s version
Main article: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (soundtrack)
In the 1960s, Italian director Sergio Leone, being impressed by the musical works of Ennio Morricone, asked him to write music for his third film — “For a handful of dollars.” Subsequently, this collaboration developed into a fruitful creative union that lasted several decades, in particular, Morricone became the author of music for the entire “Dollar Trilogy” of Leone, the genre of which was nicknamed “spaghetti Westerns”. While creating the central theme music for the third film in this series — “Good, Bad, Evil” — Morricone came up with a melody that began with two notes (A — D in the key of Dm), as well as male vocals stylized as “coyote howl”.After that, other sound strokes followed, which symbolized the main characters of the film: for the Shooter it was a soprano flute, for Sentenza (Angel Eyes) – an ocarina, in turn, Tuco characterized the “howl of a coyote”. Playing the basic musical idea, using it as an exposition in the screensaver and revealing it in the main part of the plot bring Morricone’s musical solution in the picture closer to the sonata form. The paradoxical combination of instruments illustrates the forced and somewhat absurd cooperation of the antagonist heroes. The use of one musical theme by the three main characters speaks of the commonality of their morals. The constant refrain of the melody is also emphasized by the repetition of the joke about “two types of people…”. Largely due to the memorable main theme, the soundtrack of the film reached the 4th place on the Billboard 200 chart and remained in it for a year.
