Moulin Rouge Soundtrack
This CD really bothers me, because it introduced me to a Christina Aguilera song that I actually like. I previously thought that both she and Britney Spears were musically worthless, but because of "Lady Marmalade," the now overplayed cover hit by Aguilera, Pink, Mya and Lil’ Kim, I may have to revise that opinion. This is a crazy, upbeat collection of songs, ranging from a fine remake of the Gloria Estefan hit "Rhythm of the Night," this time by Valeria, to the Fatboy Slim dance tune "Because We Can." However, some of the best tracks on the CD are the ones voiced by the stars of the film, Nicole Kidman and Ewan MacGregor. I had no idea that they could sing like this. Kidman’s version of "Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend" kicks ass.
