Instead of going on and on about the Oscar-winning Italian composer’s storied, 50-plus-year career and gushing over how many of his 500 or so film and TV scores are instantly recognizable pieces of pop culture, I’m just gonna let his work speak for itself with a few clips, like the one below from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. (More after the jump.) Happy 80th, signore!

Fistfull of Dollars

The Thing

The Untouchables
