TCS: Spaghetti Westerns – Danish Style?

Good Morning!


Welcome to The Coffee Shop, just for you early risers on Monday mornings. This is an Open Thread forum, so if you have an off-topic opinion burning a hole in your brainpan, feel free to add a comment.

“Maybe poker’s just not your game, Ike.
I know: let’s have a spelling contest.”

My husband found these videos of the Danish National Symphony performing films scores composed by the great Ennio Morricone for the ‘Spaghetti Westerns’ that made Clint Eastwood into an international star. Their versions of the music are very well done, but the visuals of the musicians while making the music made me laugh a lot, so I hope they do the same for you.

If you are pressed for time this Monday, I suggest skipping down to watch The Good, the Bad and the Ugly — I think it’s the best of the three — the brunette with the dead-pan delivery is wicked good, as they say in Boston.

Who knew the Danish National was so hip?
