Great film trying to find a song from it
27 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Loved the film I was working as an usherette in the cinema at the time the film was released and had to sit through it loads of times and I never got tired of it. Have seen it since on TV and even recorded it. Its a real nostalgia trip back to the sixty's. Did we really wear those clothes! Just one thing in the scene where Timothy (Norman Wisdom) comes back to the flat and all the crowd are there, with some painting a mural on the wall,There is a song playing in the background with the words "build me a world that no walls can divide". Does any one know the title of this song? and where to get it?. In the film the lad singing it is playing a guitar and later goes to bed with Nicki. Can anyone help.
