    I believe you're thinking of the Ennio Morricone piece...it's the opening theme from A Fistful of Dollars, if memory serves.

    If it is the "wah wah wah" song, that is from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The only Western that I've shown to a room full of my female friends, and that they've all actually liked! Whodathunkit?
