John Barry / Adam Faith / Gillian Hills - Music From The Film Beat Girl album download
Beat Girl is a 1960 British film about late-fifties youth-rebellion. The film was later released in the United States under the title Wild for Kicks. The title character of Beat Girl was played by starlet Gillian Hills, who later went on to have numerous small roles in 1960s and 1970s films, such as Blowup and A Clockwork Orange, and became a successful "ye-ye" singer in France.
Occasionally British pop singer Adam Faith (who also starred in the film) takes a lead vocal. The variations of the main theme (including a vocal rendition by Faith) are the most interesting of the lot, clearly foreshadowing both Barry's James Bond scores and the B-52s' "Rock Lobster" riff.

Composer most closely associated with the golden age of James Bond but whose scores ranged from Midnight Cowboy to Dances With Wolves. John Barry, who has died aged 77 following a heart attack, will always be associated with the golden age of James Bond, but though much of his most famous music was written to accompany the outlandish adventures of 007, his work covered a huge variety of moods and styles. In 1960 he was asked to write music for the Peter Sellers/Richard Todd vehicle Never Let Go and then for the Faith comedy Beat Girl.
Barry then met Adam Faith, and composed songs and film scores on the singer's behalf. View full artist profile.
