Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Irish (?) Song - Devil & Fiddler
Jeyes Fluid ! I never thought I'd get to see Foster & Allen & Pasolini mentioned in the same breath - with all they have in common.
But that's the song alright, guest - the version in the film was a far cry from the sort of delivery I'd expect from F & A, though.
I'll have a look around and see if I can get the rest of the lyrics.
As to the availability of the film in Ireland - I don't think it is banned - and anyway, such bans are a nonsense these days, with communications as they are. I remember seeing some of his films on a satellite channel a few years back (no, not THAT sort!). Here's a link to the BFL's blurb on their video version - which should be available to rent in some of those 'arthouse' video places in Dublin (that one on Georges St., for ex.) Canterbury Tales
They blow the sexual content out of proportion in that - bleddy British prudery - or marketing.. But it's bawdy alright - just like the songs in it..
Maybe I'll try to get it out over here on the Continong, and note down the lyrics.
Again, the credits of the film said the soundtrack was available on Topic - but that was 1972..
