Alpha Papa soundtrack: Alan Partridge movie gives airtime to forgotten classics

 

The soundtrack to Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, which receives its world premiere in Norwich on Wednesday, will deliver an unexpected sales boost to a collection of one-hit wonders, 70s novelty hits and soft rock obscurities hand-picked by the spoof DJ, created by Steve Coogan.

The long-awaited film, co-written by Armando Iannucci, sees Partridge caught up in an armed siege at his current employers, the North Norfolk Digital radio station. Songs by 70s folk rockers Steeleye Span and art-pop duo Sparks play a crucial role in the plot and are included in the soundtrack album released by Warner Music next month.

Listen to the first 10 songs of Alpha Papa's soundtrack:

 

Philip Glass - 01 - Koyaanisqatsi
