Every UK Number One Song: The Moulin Rouge Theme


“The Moulin Rouge Theme” by Mantovani & His Orchestra was Number One on 15th June 1953 and it remained at number one for 1 week. This was from the original movie version of Moulin Rouge and not the one where Kylie Minogue is a little pixie.

It is a rather nice tune but there’s no words in this version.

If you much prefer to have words with your music then here’s good old Zsa Zsa Gabor adding some lyrics but if you have a fear of big hats and pom pom dresses then don’t watch it and stick with the instrumental.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
