The influence of For A Few Dollars More:

2) Blue Monday (from 0.33)


I actually watched all three of the Dollars Trilogy films during lockdown recently. I concluded it must be a rare example of each film in a series being better than the previous one. The first one of course, didn't have Ennio's music...

Was unaware of the "Blue Monday" bit. Seems so obvious now. Thanks for sharing.


For those that haven't, I encourage all to go watch the Dollars trilogy. Compared to todays standards, it might not be the most enthralling cinematic experience, but it's loaded with style and legendary scores. Great movies to get lost into in the wee hours at night.

I never connected Blue Monday and For a Few Dollars More. It does seem obvious now! I feel like Morricone's music had a huge influence on so many artists. Amon Tobin comes to my mind in particular, he sampled Ennio on a few occasions (Golfer vs Boxer being the most obvious) and even named a track "Ode to Morricone"

I absolutely love Blue Monday (and The Beach) but I despise Blue Monday 1988. It's an unnecessary and annoying butchering of a classic, and I'm usually pretty keen on remix culture.

That is all.

Wait. It's not.

I enjoy Orgy's cover just fine and think the Hardfloor Mix from The Rest of New Order is pretty damn cool, but none compare to the original. 

Okay...one more thing. I came to post this BEFORE I knew there was a Blue Monday conversation already happening. Weird.

And THAT is all.

I missed the complaints about the Black Madonnas name and her changing it.

What a huge steaming pile of bullshit people choose to worry about.

Yeah, this seemed really weird, when Wolkenkrabber posted that. I'm usually quite sensitive when it comes to racism or injustice of any kind etc. but this I don't get at all. What right do others have to question her reason to name herself after that religous icon? All those arguments listed in the mixmag article seem streched and contrieved. Digital blackface, what nonsense in this case. She was not mocking the name but rather chose it out of honor and respect.

It's presumptuous and ignorant to assume that when people use the word "black" they are intending to mean the black community of [insert country and/or planet here].

I understood the word "black" in The Black Madonna's name to call on the gothic definition of the word.

First Clevland brown got canceled all because the actor was WHITE (Its a frickin voice actor, I didn't know he was white until now and it doesn't bother me.) And now "Blessed Madonna" Changed her name because it had the word Black in it?

Wait 'till cancel culture hear about Black magic, Black Ops and Black Market.

It's not really about whether it bothers you. As a Black person, seeing a popular character that, let's face it, HEAVILY stereotypes an entire race - to then find out that the person behind the voice of that character is not even Black, that's a bit of a gut punch. It's a job opportunity that definitely could have been given to a BIPOC but for whatever reason was not. It's an unfortunate and very public example of what the Black Lives Matter movement is trying to address, which is why the creators made the sensible decision to remove the character. You're upset about a character being cancelled but not addressing why BIPOC might be upset about his existence in the first place. At the end of the day, living without Cleveland Brown should be a very, very easy inconvenience to suffer if it helps progress a movement towards actual equality.

The Black Madonna thing seems pretty stupid though.

Totally agreed. What utter nonsense.

There had been comments about her dj name for a while and most of them seemed to be connected to her pointed criticism of misogyny in dj culture and those people can go fuck themselves.  As someone who knows her through the Ohio River region rave scene, her respect for Catholicism, black people, & UK basketball is without question (being a UK fan is always questionable though...).

Can I get one?

I just voted...

...in my provincial election (not quite the same stakes).
That would have blown my mind. If I had a mind.
