I think this list by John Nolte of the greatest Western movie themes is darned good, though I’d make one change. I’d remove “For A Few Dollars More” and replace it with the Silverado theme, composed by Bruce Broughton. One Morricone in a Top Five list is fine with me, if it means that we can replace it with the theme to finest western (aside from Tombstone, which soundtrack was also a Broughton composition) made since the 60s.
Yeah, I know that Nolte has forgotten more about movies than I’ll ever know, but I definitely have to make room for Silverado.
What do you think?
