Twisterella


Anywhere I could download this song?

I doubt any more of it exists than actually appeared in the movie. I assume it was written by the film's composer Richard Rodney Bennett.

It was recorded by Irish singer Muriel Day, and appears on the soundtrack. It may also be on records by Ms. Day.

Does a soundtrack exist for this film?!!

reply

Sorry to raise your hopes, but I didn't mean soundtrack *album*, just the film soundtrack, i.e. music and dialogue.

Good to see Billy still holds the nation's interest. On the subject of Twisterella, a family dispute has arisen regarding the first word of the song- I'm sure its BOOGIE, but others think it is KOOKIE or even GOOGIE!
As the book and film were based on my life, (even though I was only 9 when the film was released!) I believe I am right- anybody out there agree?
cheers

According to comments on the You Tube page, the original singer could not appear in the film, as she was heavily pregnant, so Muriel Day lip-synched to the original track.

It's on You Tube as an extract from the film, so of course there is dialogue over the song. Still, better than nothing!

reply

The song Twisterella by 90s UK band Ride is inspired by the song from the film.

They actually sing the "Poor old Twisterella, she hasn't got a fella" line over the instrumental part at the end.

heading down a different path...I was never sure whether this song was for real or whether this was another of Billy's fantasies. Can anyone advise?

reply

It's real. If it was a fantasy, everyone in the music hall would be jumping up and down and telling Billy what a great song he wrote. Instead, his friend Arthur Crabtree (co-worker at Shadrach and co-writer of the song) tells him to stop making up lies to his mother and grow up.
