25 DAYS OF SONGS CHALLENGE: DAY 12 – THE LAST SONG I HEARD

10 Comments

You’ve lucked out on this one, folks.

‘El Tango de Roxanne’ was the last song on my iTunes shuffle this afternoon, before the phone rang and I turned it off, and comes with a clip from Baz Luhrmann’s musical tour de force ‘Moulin Rouge!’

This dance sequence still gives me chills and reminds me so much of when I had little trust in men, and whilst I was never a whore, I probably had a similar glint of mocking distrust in my eyes as ‘Roxanne’ did when encountering a member of the opposite sex hell bent on seduction back in the day.

Nor can I tango like that. Unfortunately.  As I’d give my eye teeth and a whole lot more besides to do so.

Passion at it’s finest, listen, watch and want

  1. Can’t remember the last I heard, so this is one I’ll hear sometime in the next 6 hours as I drive to Sydney, changing CDs at 110 down the freeway. 🙂

  2. What dancing, powerful and fun!

  3. Pity Baz is such a total arsehole now … Happens to most of ’em (specially the littlies) ! [grin]

    • And he’s a bloke of course….doesn’t help…. 😉

      • Harrumph!  Madame, I might take exception to that remark, were I not an Honorary Lady.

        “COMPLICATED SHADOWS”, ELVIS COSTELLO
        Not the original cut from 1996’s ALL THIS USELESS BEAUTY, the acoustic version from 2009’s SECRET, PROFANE AND SUGARCANE.
        Oddly, I’m not at home—I heard it while sitting in a coffee shop. Never heard that song in a public setting before.

      • Good place to have coffee from the sound of it…
