This scene elevated Eastwood to stardom faster than any other well scripted scene did for anyone in a movie.

Music and images can make for a powerful combination, when done well. ;-)

While the following two selections were not movie or tv themes, I do believe that they fit into the theme of "Musical Anthems".

Putting aside the politics of the man (Glenn Beck) who started the initiative (9/12 project) that the following two videos are associated with, I present to you two videos.

The first video was created by some people in central Illinois who were interested in Glenn Beck's 9/12 project:



(for the life of me, I cannot remember the musical selection for this. I once looked it up and even downloaded the song, but cannot remember the name. I think the word "kingdom" may appear in the song title. It might have appeared in The Lord of the Rings (or something similar) but I just can't place it right now).

The video was sent by the creators to Glenn Beck. He loved it (and with the creator's permission), redid the video to another song and with some additional/different photos, but kept within its general theme).

Here is Beck's redo of the original:



I believe that the song in this version is called "The Greatest Emperor".

IMHO, the music and accompanying images in both videos are powerful. I still get tingles down my spine watching them.

Ennio Morricone was a musical genius in the way that the did the score for the Eastwood/Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns.

And this reminds me of another music/movie selection that was inspired by the above:



Yes, it was a blatant ripoff, but I consider it a musical homage to Morricone's earlier work and the Eastwood spaghetti westerns.

That's a good observation. Think you're onto it.

I didn't realize that he was still with us.

And I just went back and watched the "Showdown with the Tiger" piece again.
If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound of spurs jingling as the three of them walk down that street.
Little touches like that are fricken amazing.

I was fortunate. My Dad and oldest sister are masters of music. I grew up listening to stuff like this.

CatLover7 I upvote your posts too often.
