Ok, maybe every other Moulin Rouge fan knows this


but remember when Zigler tells Satine that she is dying--right as she's packing to flee with Christian? She sings the following lines:

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you

I was always super sad that this snippet of song wasn't on either of the soundtracks released for the film. Today I was searching for songs by the band Lamb, and lo and behold I came upon "Gorecki."

I should have known that the song was probably a sampling considering so much of the rest of the movie's music is not original, but live and learn. What a treat to find it!

I consider myself a huge Moulin Rouge fan, and I didn't know that this song existed as a full song prior to the movie! Sweet! Good work for stumbling across it and then sharing it on your blog!!

ooh, good find. for a long time i didn't know that "the show must go on" was queen. (it fits in there too perfectly!)

"the show must go on" does fit perfectly--the Queen version will always make me think of Zigler and the ladies sewing!
