THE MUSIC OF NINO ROTA (a BFG Mix)




















Eartha Kitt - La Dolce Vita
Amarcord (Medley)
Franco Ferrara - Coimbra (suite) (from Il Bidone)
Guido E Luisa Nostalgico (from 8 1/2)
Noro Morales - La Dolce Vita
Le Le Notti Di Cabiria (from Nights of Cabiria)
Toby Dammit Theme (from LSD Roma)
Franco Ferrara - Come Tu Vuoi (slow) (from Rocco and His Bros.)
Radiolina di pupe (from Boccaccio '70)

I love Nino Rota's soundtrack music.

The plodding waltzes, rock, and 40's dance hall numbers. The eerie pre-psychedelic surrealist organ-jazz, drunk trumpet pathos, nods to Harold Arlen, and Perez Prado. Female scat vocals, and circus/carnival foxtrots. I chose some of my favorites here (plus a couple of covers). There are many more. A brief sampling.

Enjoy.
