The Music of ‘Moulin Rouge!’

Moulin Rouge! is a brilliant example of a modern musical, with many quotable lines and catchy songs in a visually stunning film.

As a fan of Moulin Rouge! and an avid listener of the soundtrack, I have listed the songs from Moulin Rouge! in my personal order of least to most favourite:

  1. Like A Virgin

I basically love all of the songs from this film; this was a very hard list to arrange! I highly recommend Moulin Rouge! if you haven’t seen this beautiful film.
