Splendida Project has unearthed the tune from which Gnarls got “Crazy.”
“Nel Cimitero Di Tuscon” was composed by the Reverberi brothers for the ’68 film Preparati La Bara!. Splendida says they were students of spaghetti Western soundtracker Ennio Morricone — which isn’t surprising once you hear it.
