The one I remember - and always liked a lot - was Apache.

I'm pretty sure someone is using it in a current commercial.

Jeff is right -- the riff plays on a current TV ad, but I don't recall which one. I gotta believe that "Apache" was one of the influences on Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western sound.
