Favourite 5 responses to this Washington Post headline about Ennio Morricone
You may have seen the sad news today that the legendary film composer Ennio Morricone has died aged 91.
The Oscar-winning composer made music for more than 500 films including A Fistful of Dollars, Once Upon A Time in America, The Hateful Eight, Cinema Paradiso, The Mission … the list goes on and on.
And yet this is how the Washington Post decided to headline the story about his death.
These 5 responses pretty much say it all.
And RIP to Mozart who wrote “scooby-do-wap-wap a skeep-beep de bop-bop beep bop bo-dope skeetle-at-de-op-de-day” of Piano Concerto No.21.

Does this mean that John Williams eventual obit will read 'composer who wrote 'durr dumm durr dumm' theme for 'Jaws'?

One of the most famous composers in modern history – and probably the most famous in film history – and this is the crap that's used to inform the world of his passing?
I hope it's a rough day in the office for whichever staffer posted this.

To conclude …
“The man leads a decent life and this is how he ends up? Composer who wrote ‘ah-ee-ah-ee-ah’ theme?!” pic.twitter.com/kBCGXJjesG

Me respectful: 'Ennio Morricone, you know the man who successfully and innovatively blurred the lines between classical, different folk traditions, psychedelia and the avant garde?'
