The Sound of Raunchy and Erotic Italian Film Scores

Ever wonder what an Italian film score sounds like? Yeah? Well how about Italian scores from erotic films? Even if you haven’t seen an Italian “erotica”, these scores are great for every lounge music lover (pun intended).

Beat At Cinecitta” is a music score compilation from, you guessed it, raunchy Italian films from the 60’s and 70’s. Italian composers such as Piero Piccioni and Riz Ortolani are featured in three great volumes.

There are many variations in the music with slow spy like tracks to fast paced melodies. Keyboards, drums and brass instruments of all kind pop up in and between the tracks. I think you may even hear an organ in there somewhere. My favorite tracks are “Bada Caterina” and “Abigaille” from Beat At Cinecitta Volume 1. All the soundtracks are fun, creative and wild. You can’t go wrong with these instrumental albums. You’ll fall in love.
