Ok, I fell down a youtube hole today over lunch and it lead me to three gems that hit me in the feels unexpectedly.  Listening to them took me back to laying on my mom and dad's living room floor watching westerns with my dad.  For that reason, I give you three classics done by The Danish National Symphony Orchestra.

This Eastwood flicks were such a staple of my youth and I defy anyone to not recognize the good bad ugly tune, even if they dont know its a movie lol

Those renditions were amazing! And Ecstasy of Gold is my favorite tune from any western, and when that hit at about the 3:00 minute mark in the Good, The Bad and the Ugly video I got some chills. Nice finds.

A Graceful Fall from John Mellencamp in 2010.
This is such a great recording for a number of reasons. One is, Mellencamp had zero interest in recording for success of th album but for the love.
He traveled to several sites of old blues recordings such as Robert Johnson et al. He also recorded with a portable recorder and one microphone, just like the predecessors.
Thats cool to me and I really dig this tune.

Fun fact about this video: this was directed by William Friedkin, which you might know him more by his films The French Connection and The Exorcist.

Also, still can't believe she's been gone since 2004.

This song was the first single released off of Purple Rain on this day in 1984. Had no idea that even after some of the amazing hits he had before this (1999, Controversy, Delirious, Little Red Corvette), When Doves Cry was his first #1 single. That's just crazy to me...damn I miss this dude.
