Italian western music and sound in other films

I know The Good The Bad and The Ugly’s theme has been used in media for decades, but what about other tunes or even sound effects. For instance ‘Escape from Alcatraz’ and the first ‘Lethal Weapon’ used that classic spaghetti western gunshot sound effect. Or an episode of ‘My Name is Earl’ using the theme to ‘For a Few Dollars More’.

SpongeBob Squarepants has featured the score of Forgotten Pistelero in several episodes


That sounds great. Are there any clips on YouTube of it?

There is a lot to talk about. I think Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow used music from The Boldest Job in the West.


Two of HK filmmaker Ng See Yuen’s classic kung fu movies, Invincible Armour (1977) extensively uses the Day of Anger soundtrack and Secret Rivals (1975) uses The Big Gundown score
