Overview

This various-artists soundtrack to the British film St. Trinian's features performances by members of the cast and some tracks written especially for the picture, including the leadoff song, "Theme to St. Trinian's" (aka "Defenders of Anarchy"), performed by Girls Aloud, which suggests a cross between a cockney version of Glee and Sigue Sigue Sputnik. That's right, the film is set at an English girls school, and the musical sensibility dates from around 1986 or so, the era of post-punk dance-rock in the U.K., as purveyed by the likes of Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Sophie Ellis-Bextor's "If I Can't Dance," in fact, sounds like it could be a Frankie track with a female vocal over it. Remi Nicole's "Teenage Kicks," meanwhile, casts back a bit toward late-'70s punk, recalling X-Ray Spex. Somewhere among the forceful dance beats and heavily accented British female voices, Rupert Everett and Colin Firth turn up singing the 1978 John Paul Young hit "Love Is in the Air" in the campiest manner imaginable, as if they were Pet Shop Boys, and the Four Aces' 50s hit "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" makes an unlikely appearance.
