Moulin Rouge, “C'est Féerie”
Moulin Rouge, courtesan, revue, cabaret, it's all French!
Moulin Rouge (French pronunciation: [mu.lɛ̃ ʁuʒ], French for Red Mill) is a cabaret in Paris, France.
Moulin Rouge is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance. Originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe. Today, Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. The club's decor still contains much of the romance of fin de siècle France.
- [etymology of courtesan https://www.etymonline.com/word/courtesan] «early 15c., from Middle French courtisane, from Italian cortigiana “prostitute,” literally “woman of the court,” fem. of cortigiano “one attached to a court,” from corte “court,” from Latin cortem (see court (n.)).»
- [etymology of revue https://www.etymonline.com/word/revue] «1650s, from French cabaret, originally “tavern” (13c.), of uncertain origin, perhaps from Middle Dutch cambret, from Old French (Picard dialect) camberete, diminutive of cambre “chamber” (see chamber). The word was “somewhat naturalized” in this sense [OED] It came to mean “a restaurant/night club” in English from 1912; extension of meaning to “entertainment, floor show” is from 1922.»
- [etymology of cabaret https://www.etymonline.com/word/cabaret] «1872, “show presenting a review of current events,” from French revue, from Middle French, literally “survey,” noun use of fem. past participle of revoir “to see again” (see review (n.)). Later extended to shows consisting of a series of unrelated scenes.»
all you see is teats and legs. Not just any, but the quality meat of super models.
the song is fantastic, i've been listening to it for 8 hours. Note at the end (5:45), the music seemingly ended, then the siren wails, and it began all over. Such a powerful episode.
and note the fantastic choreography. It is, certainly not just some bawdy show of meat. Also note near the end, at 5:55, when the siren wails, the gait of their backward steps. There's this certain stylistic twitch movement of the legs. What does that mean? That means, practice, practice, practice!
the girls must be highly paid. Also note their tits. Not flat, not bulbous. It must be just right.
here's the lyrics.
