The song I have been eager to get since I saw a movie "Barbarella" about 6 years ago. Finally I got the soundtrack CD. I do love the theme tune, Barbarella, too, but this somehow makes me feel "America", the place I have been longing for.
What mekes me feel so? Bob Crewe's sexy and gorgeous vocal? Cool horn and brass arrangements? widely spreading atomosphere? Everything is attracting reminding me of the scene where Pygar is flying after getting his new wings!

By the way, I don't think thats Bob singing, is it? He sings on one of his other LP's and its not too, er, memorable. 24 Oct 02 ·masayo: According to the liner notes, "Bob Crew was persuaded by producer Dino de Laurentiis to sing on the wonderful end cue, 'An Angel is Love'."
But I haven't listened to his other songs, so I can't say it's definitely his voice, though... 24 Oct 02 ·n-jeff: Liner notes, blimey. Top song even so. 19 Oct 03 ·heinmukk: truly great song. but i have to say, that i like the theme tune more. but it's maybe because i only listen to it while watching the intro with jane fonda undressing. best intro scene of a movie ever! and jane is supersexy, isn't she?!
candy!! 11 Mar 04 ·skooba: Does anyone know where could download mp3s of the Babarella soundtrack? Any other recomendations welcome. 11 Mar 04 ·delicado: It's in print on Harkit Records. Here's one of many places you can buy it: http://www.moviegrooves.com/shop/barbarella.htm. 12 Mar 04 ·olli: probably my favourite soundtrack ever. has to agree with heinmukk though, the title tune is better. the version in the actual movie is a bit different from the soundtrack version, probably worth ripping from the dvd if you can get your hands on it. I also love the track "fight in flight", it probably has one of the coolest combos of funk guitars and string arrangements there is.... thereīs a rerelease of the album with some bonus tracks by the young lovers out, (some pretty standard easy listening cover versions of existing tracks, nice if you're a completist though.) dont remember wich label itīs on though.
