Wish they did The Magnificent 7 Theme!
I was really surprised when I first heard it.
Thank you for posting this. I liked their rendition of Orange Blossom which had a Smoke on the Water section worked in.
Thanks! great post...
One of my favorite movies. And the music is bizarrely incredible. Great video, thanks.
I see seven musicians. I thought six was the perfect number?
Ooooo, that is soooo British!
Bravo....best thing I’ve heard all week.
Bump for later.
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain?
Reminds me of Max Raabe Orchestra:
“Cheek to cheek”
“Let’s talk about sex”
Hope you enjoy this version of Ecstasy of Gold.
Even the 'vocal' parts were spectacular!
Thanks for posting! Great!
..........but they all have two strings missing!!
re: Reminds me of Max Raabe Orchestra
Clint Eastwood as "Blondie": The Good, a.k.a. the Man with No Name, a subdued, cocksure bounty hunter who teams with Tuco, and Angel Eyes temporarily, to find the buried gold. Blondie and Tuco have an ambivalent partnership. Tuco knows the name of the cemetery where the gold is hidden, but Blondie knows the name of the grave where it is buried, forcing them to work together to find the treasure. In spite of this greedy quest, Blondie's pity for the dying soldiers in the chaotic carnage of the War is evident. "I've never seen so many men wasted so badly," he laments.
Lee Van Cleef as Angel Eyes: The Bad, a ruthless, unfeeling and sociopathic mercenary named "Angel Eyes" (Sentenza - Sentence - in the original script and the Italian version), who always finishes a job he's paid for (which is usually finding...and killing people). When Blondie and Tuco are captured while posing as Confederate soldiers, Angel Eyes is the Union sergeant who interrogates and tortures Tuco, eventually learning the name of the cemetery where the gold is buried, but not the name on the tombstone. Angel Eyes forms a fleeting partnership with Blondie, but Tuco and Blondie turn on Angel Eyes when they get their chance.
Eli Wallach as Tuco: The Ugly, Tuco Benedicto Pacífico Juan María Ramírez, a comical, oafish (though proven also very dangerous as seen throughout the film), fast talking bandit who is wanted by the authorities for a long list of crimes. Tuco manages to discover the name of the cemetery where the gold is buried, but he does not know the name of the grave - only Blondie does.
I can’t figure this out. Do these folks have too much time on their hands or are these the strings that stir men’s souls?
I gotta get this.
Thought it said, “Good, Bad and the OOGY”... at first.
Sent to my virtuoso ukele friends.
This is a better link than the one in #30.
that was fun.
Have you been spindled lately?
Isn’t it AMAZING what happens, when you have a “President” whose brother lives in a hut in Africa? We might as well be led by Idi Amin!
That was bloody brilliant!
Sorry - that last post I made, while true, was to the wrong article! LOL.
