Favoriting November 22, 2016: Hang 'Em High: Western Soundtracks and Covers

Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop-up player!

Artist Track Comments Approx. start time
Big Guitars from Texas  The Good, The Bad and the Ugly   Favoriting Since I began doing radio on WFMU in the 1980s, my intro theme has been a cut from a CD by Big Guitars from Texas, which combines two albums by Austin pickers from the 80s. This tune did not make it onto the CD but here it is, for your listening pleasure.  0:00:00 (Pop-up)
Juno Reactor  Pistolero   Favoriting This song is the highlight of an excellent soundtrack album for "Once Upon a Time from Mexico" starring Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek and Johnny Depp.  0:04:14 (Pop-up)
Tonto's Giant Nuts  Sands Theme   Favoriting Robert Rodriquez wrote, directed & scored "Once Upon a Time from Mexico." The soundtrack includes original music plus songs from a variety of bands. This is Johnny Depp's band.  0:06:08 (Pop-up)
Robert Rodriguez  Chicle Boy   Favoriting More original music from the "Once Upon a Time from Mexico" soundtrack  0:09:03 (Pop-up)
Chingon  Cuka Rocka   Favoriting This band includes Robert Rodriguez and Rick & Mark del Castillo. I've played music from the Del Castillo band on FMU in the past. One more from "Once Upon a Time from Mexico"  0:10:07 (Pop-up)
The Meters  Hang 'Em High   Favoriting This New Orleans funk instrumental combo does a great job covering the theme song from this 1968 Clint Eastwood movie. The original score is by Dominic Frontiere.  0:12:18 (Pop-up)
Lee "Scratch" Perry & The Upsetters  D'Jango Shoots First   Favoriting Spaghetti Westerns were super popular in Jamaica. Lee Scratch Perry did a number of songs inspired by these movies. Rumor has it that John Sayles is working on a new Django movie.  0:15:51 (Pop-up)
Ennio Morricone  Django   Favoriting The first Django movie, from 1966, tells the story of a former Union soldier after the Civil War feuding with a Ku Klux Klan-type gang of Confederate racists and a band of Mexican revolutionaries.  0:18:49 (Pop-up)

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre   Favoriting


Alfonso Bedoya  "Badges, We Ain't Got No Stinkin' Badges"   Favoriting Starts @ 26 minutes. The "Badges" scene from "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre"-- a John Huston masterpiece, with Humphrey Bogart & Walter Huston, with Alfonso Bedoya as the greatest bandit ever!  0:29:40 (Pop-up)
Sonny Rollins  I'm an Old Cowhand   Favoriting Masterful jazz cover of a Johnny Mercer song, from the 1936 film "Rhythm on the Range." We tried to play the original tune from the movie, without success. Sung by Bing Crosby, it has Louis Prima playing trumpet and much more; check out the charming YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jo-pApe1Kd0  0:30:32 (Pop-up)
