I saw the movie 'Mirror Mask' last night and I was surprised when I heard this on the soundtrack:

I thought that this might have been posted here before but if it has I can't find it. Overall I like this version of 'Any Old Time Of The Day' by the curiously named Leslie Uggams.

We've discussed 'Any Old Time Of The Day' quite a bit on here and the general consensus was that Bacharach didn't put enough emphasis on the "Call me and I'll be there" refrain on the original recording by Dionne Warwick. Stan Getz obviously thought along the same lines because his version puts it centre stage of the tune, to the extent he dispenses with the bridge all together:

This is one from Ennio Morricone I hadn't heard before it came up on my Spotify Discover Weekly.
I know the classics but beyond those, where do you start exploring his massive back catalog ?
