Hugo Montenegro (1925–1981)


His recording of the theme song from "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" reached #2 on the U.S. charts in June of 1968. In this highly stylized instrumental recording, the distinctive grunting on the soundtrack is Montenegro himself mumbling nonsensical syllables in Italian. See more trivia »
