Clint Eastwood (song)
"Clint Eastwood" is a song by British virtual band Gorillaz. It was released as the first single from their debut album in March 2001. It peaked at number 4 in the UK and number 57 in the US. The single has sold 480,000 copies in the UK according to the Official UK Charts Company. The song is a mix of electronic, dub, hip hop and rock. The song's chorus includes the line "I've got sunshine in a bag", which is taken from the classic western film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, in which Clint Eastwood is referring to a saddle bag of gold. While The Good, the Bad and the Ugly stars Clint Eastwood, he is not mentioned in the song itself except in the title. The verses are rapped by Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, portrayed as a blue phantom in the video, while the chorus is sung by Damon Albarn, portraying the character 2D. In October 2011, NME placed it at number 141 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years".
