: The idea of throwing a "song", out of the blue, in a film with a completely instrumental score is not a new idea; in the early 70's this practice was also in vogue. Maybe at the time this was considered a good idea but as those films aged; boy, do they sound cheesy when in the middle of the film a some silly folk/love song starts playing during scenes of some montage of young couples in love. (Examples: Cahill: US Marshall and Chisum both with my favorite actor of all time, John Wayne).
You've got a point here Tom...maybe it's just the cowboy movie thing. I think perhaps the only good song in a western was Madeleine Kahn's in Blazing Saddles "I'm tellin' you boys...I'm tired." I'm hoping Claanad's song will stand the test of time.
