Withnail & I


One of my absolute favorite films (Top 10, probably) Withnail & I (German title, Withnail & I), Bruce Robinson's tremendously funny 1987 film about two unemployed actors in London and their mistaken holiday. Starring the brilliant Richard E. Grant as Withnail, Paul McGann as "I" (actual character name Marwood, though it's not mentioned in the film or credits) and Richard Griffiths as raving homosexual Monty. Also with Ralph Brown, nearly stealing the show as deranged drug dealer Danny. Ralph was also in Wayne's World 2 as Del Preston, a character very similar to his Danny character from Withnail.

I recently purchased the R2 3-disc DVD of the movie. Included was a cd of the score. The original soundtrack featured both the score and the other songs featured in the film (the Jimi Hendrix tracks, The Beatles, King Curtis, etc.), so I ripped my CD of the score and tracked down the rest of the songs featured on the soundtrack.

1. A Whiter Shade Of Pale (05:29)
King Curtis
2. The Wolf (01:33)
3. All Along The Watchtower (04:10)
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
4. To The Crow (02:22)
5. Voodoo Chile (04:28)
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
6. While My Guitar Gently Weeps (04:44)
The Beatles
7. Marwood Walks (02:14)
8. Monty Remembers (02:02)
9. La Fite (01:10)
10. Hang Out The Stars In Indiana (01:35)
Al Bowlly & New Mayfair Dance Orchestra
11. Crow Crag (00:56)
12. Cheval Blanc (01:15)
13. My Friend (01:28)
Charlie Kunz
14. Withnail's Theme (02:40)

Who fucks arses? Maybe he fucks arses! Maybe he's written this in some moment of drunken sincerity.

This is superb! Many thanks. Don't suppose that there's any chance of the soundtrack for How To Get Ahead In Advertising, is there? - all the best for your excellent blog, Ken Shinn
