Vergogna schifosi is a 1969 movie directed by Mauro Severino, a “Generation ’68” film whose aim is to depict a social protest against the middle-class youth of the time, with the deserted – as empty as the protagonists – city of Milan in the background; everything is tied together by a mysterious murder that occurred years before, resurfaced by a mysterious individual.

The soundtrack of this film was entrusted to Ennio Morricone who, with the collaboration of I Cantori Moderni di Alessandro Alessandroni and an incredible Edda Dell’Orso, combined symphonic and pop music, with a jazzy rhythmic background. Six tracks with a soothing and romantic atmosphere that wouldn’t look out of place in a ‘lounge’ compilation; undoubtedly brilliant is the reinterpretation of the famous nursery rhyme melody of “Giro Giro Tondo”, included in the two pieces of the same title “Matto, Caldo, Soldi, Morto… Girotondo”.
