Badass Crime Film Music

The Taking of Pelham 123 (1974) David Shire's funky horn blast ridden score. 

The Legendary Ennio Morricone touches The Untouchables (1987)

The Long Good Friday (1980) Francis Monkman bookends this great flick perfectly.

La Polizia Sta a Guardare (1973)  That's Italian for "This Song is teh Cool"

Kavinsky's Nightcall sets the tone, perfectly, for Drive (2011)

Superfly (1972) Curtis Mayfield can do no wrong.

Wendy Carlos falls in love with synthesizers and we fall in love with A Clockwork Orange (1971)

Lalo Schifrin's Scorpio's View from Dirty Harry (1971).  Drums and Horns make me feel lucky.

I was running right behind Duvall and Joe Don when I heard Jerry Fielding's Hotel Corridor/Bad Right Ear from The Outfit (1974)

Here's an obscure one....

John Carpenters riff on The Immigrant Song.  Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)

Bobby Womack's ode to the hard knock life.  Across 110th Street (1972)

Terrence Malick's Badlands (1973)  So cool, True Romance ganked it.  Carl Orff's dreamlike Gassenhauer.
