“The Ecstasy of Gold” (Italian: L'estasi dell'oro) is a musical
composition by Ennio Morricone, part of his score for the Sergio Leone
film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It is played while Tuco (Eli
Wallach) is frantically searching a cemetery for the grave that holds
$200,000 in gold coins. Sung by Edda Dell'Orso, it stands as one of the
most well known of Morricone's themes.

The song is used as incidental music in The Simpsons episode Super
Franchise Me, the third episode of the show's 26th season. The episode
“XCIII” in Samurai Jack's 5th season pays homage to the cemetery scene
when Jack hides from the Daughters of Aku in a stone coffin within a
ruined temple (complete with a reimagining of The Ecstasy of Gold).
