[music |quincy jones - italian job ost]

the italian job (1969) vs oceans eleven (2001)

well i think the former just shades it,
both have classic soundtracks,
it's a tough call but i think the italian job has enough lol comedy value
and classy cinematography to give it the edge,
even though oceans eleven is cooler.
(imdb scores it 7.5 to 7.4 for oceans eleven)

(and of course there is also the satisfyingly circular second division clash between
'the italian job (2003)' vs 'oceans eleven (1960)'...
both flawed but enjoyable movies.)

(I did love that film, have to see it again.)
if you got 'em, it's a sure bet they belong to somebody else

it's actually the inside cover of a cd single called superman by a (highly underrated) band named straw.
