A Playlist of Italian Soundtrack Highlights (Feedback Appreciated)

I’m making a mixtape for someone, and as a proof of concept I wanted to play around with track sequences as a YouTube playlist first. If you’d like to listen for yourself, here’s a link! I’d love any constructive feedback, like if you think it loses the “flow” at any point, or you’d recommend adding/subtracting any songs. Thanks in advance.

This playlist is composed primarily of highlights from some of my new favorite Italian films. There’s one song not affiliated with any movie, (“Vivre Por Vivre”) the rest are taken from: Uccidere in Silenzio (To Kill in Silence), Femina Ridens (The Laughing Woman), Scacco Alla Regina (Check to the Queen), La legge dei gangsters (Gangster’s Law).

Thanks Spongebob for introducing me to this fantastic instrumental.


  1. Thanks for sharing these. Great Music, For me based on the ones we watched the music was much better than the films themselves.

  2. Two great lists there, C. Some cuts won’t play for me so I can’t comment on the flow. But there are plenty of goodies to enjoy. I’m pretty familiar with the Italian tracks–they’re rather like old friends now. Many in the Eclectic Playlist are familiar to me too, either thanks to you or having heard them at the time. So yes, a great listen all round! 😉

    Curiously, Gerhard Narholz used to compose orchestral stuff for the music lending library I worked at in the early ’70s.
