The soundtracks for Sergio Leone’s trilogy of movies were all created by the legendary composer Ennio Morricone. Here is a list of the best soundtracks from the three iconic movies: “A Fistful of Dollars”, “For a Few Dollars More” and “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly”.
1. The Ecstasy of Gold
This song plays in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly during the iconic scene where Tuco (Eli Wallach) runs in the cemetery in search for the grave containing the gold.
2. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
The main theme of the third movie The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It’s hard for many fans to choose between this and the theme from A Few Dollars More.
3. For a Few Dollars More
The main theme of the second movie of the trilogy, A Few Dollars More, which is considered by many the best main theme of the trilogy.
4. The Trio
This epic track plays at the end of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly during the final duel between the three main characters.
5. Per Un Pugno Di Dollari
This is the main theme of the first movie A Fistful of Dollars, which has 3 different versions used in the film, this being the most popular version which is used in the finale. As Ennio Morricone is an Italian composer, and the song search engine of TheTopTens using iTunes being what it is, I could only find the Italian titles for this movie.
6. La Resa Dei Conti
The song that plays during the final duel in the second movie, in which you can hear watch chimes.
7. The Story of a Soldier
This is the song that plays in the Union army prison camp during the scene in which Tuco is being beaten by the sergeant under Angel Eyes’ command in order to learn what he knows about the buried Confederate gold.
This song plays when the “Man with no name” rides back to town before Ramon and his men.
9. The Death of a Soldier
The Death Of A Soldier plays after the battle at the bridge, once Blondie and Tuco cross the bridge, Blondie finds a dying soldier and gives him one last cigar. He then finds his signature poncho next to him.
10. The Carriage of The Spirits
This song plays when the carriage carrying Carson passes near Tuco in the desert.
