Before The Burst of Tambourines Take You There

I thought people who enjoyed the "Calamity Jane's Revenge" movie might like this. Whenever I write a screenplay, I compose a "Secret Soundtrack" of songs that inspire me when I'm working. Here is the Secret Soundtrack to Calamity Jane's Revenge: 

OPENING THEME: Fire on the Mountain by Marshall Tucker Band: 

DEATH OF WILD BILL HICKOK: Hurt by Johnny Cash: 

CALAMITY JANE'S THEME: Cinderella by Firefall: 

FAY'S THEME: Wildflower by Skylark: 

HUNTING/TRACKING SONG: Ghost Riders in the Sky by Johnny Cash: 

GUNFIGHTING SONG: Green Grass and High Tides by the Outlaws: 

FINAL SHOWDOWN: God's Gonna Cut You Down by Johnny Cash: 

CLOSING CREDITS: Knocking on Heaven's Door by Bob Dylan: 

BONUS GENERAL INSPIRATION: Hickory Wind by The Byrds: 

 and especially Wild West Hero by ELO:

Be With My Western Girl Round The Fire, Oh So Bright

Almost 150 people came out over two showings on Friday night in Germantown, Ohio to watch "Calamity Jane's Revenge," a western I wrote for director Henrique Couto (who took this picture from the front of the theater).  A fun night.
