Hi G.A, Gene Autry had songs like those of above and some like: Don't Fence me In, Back In the Saddle Again, Rose of San Antone, Strawberry Roan and so many others.

Roy Rogers is famous for his which also include, Don't Fence Me In, Happy Trails etc.

Tex Ritter is the late John Ritters father. Tex sang Western songs and had a VERY deep voice. One of his songs I can remember by title is: Boots and Saddles.

The Sons of the Pioneers was a group that had the guy who played Festus hagen in Gunsmoke, as one of its lead singers and he was an excellent singer ;-) sorry i cannot think of his name at the moment. Anyway, in many John Ford Westerns (w/ John Wayne) the Sons of the Pioneers sang the music in those movies. One great Western you can hear a good rendition of their singing in is Rio grande w/ John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. Though (Festus Hagen) is not given credit for being in the movie (unless you go to IMDB) you will notice him singing (serenading) the actor who played Philip Sheridan in that movie. They were introduced by Victor McLaglan as the Traditional Singers.

Some of their songs include: Tumbling Tumbleweeds and Cool Water.

Sorry for such a long post but, if ever interested, I can tape you some of their great music as well.

Thanks for the information, Mitchell. Perhaps you'd like to post more about these "singing cowboys" for those who aren't familiar with them. If so, the Off Topic forum is the place to do that.

I really wanted to go with Dirty Harry because I just love its funked-up jazzy style, but I think because it makes such an impact (and is instantly recognisable) I had to vote for GBU. But I love both.

Btw - useless aside, but I found my Dirty Harry soundtrack. American Graffiti is still missing though :(

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Hi KC, G.A.

KC, i'll be glad to write something up on those guys sometime no problem. In fact, as I think more about it, that might make for a nice on-going article. By the way, just recently (I think in Feb) the state of texas celebrated the 100th birthday of Bob Wills (of the Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys fame) by selling a scratch off lotto ticket during the month of his birthday.

G.A., quite welcome and the offer will stand if you ever wat to hear any of that stuff. I think that older stuff has to be an 'acquired" taste but, it really is some great stuff.

In order: "Magnum Force", "Firefox" and the closing theme from "The Dead Pool," though there are lots of incidental themes I like, esp. the jazz.

If I had to choose a favorite theme, I'd go for 'Rose of
Alabamy' from The Outlaw Josie Wales. It's a musical
reminder of the Civil War that produced so many outlaws, including Wales. FANDerson O0
