Re the song played at the birthday party in Deceptions


Does anyone know the artist name/title of the song playing at Sabrina and Stephanie's birthday party in Venice? I think it's called "Don't Let It Stop" (??). Who sings it?

Over a year late, but...
You mean - Pointer Sisters - "I'm so excited"

It's not 'I'm So Excited', that plays during the yacht scene when Steph get's killed. Also the song that follows "Don't Let It Stop" during the fireworks scene is "High Energy" by Evelyn Thomas.

After much research I discovered that "Don't Let It Stop" is a song written and recorded by the gentleman behind the score of the film, Nigel Hess. He's a reputable composer from the UK. The song was recorded with random studio sessions singers, for the sole use of the movie during the birthday party scene. It has never been made available to the general public and neither has the rest of the film's score.

I hope one day this movie makes it out on an official DVD release, it's a true classic in my opinion.
