The Soundtrack Revival Of 2017
One of the more curious developments of 2017 is the popularity of soundtracks.

Universal released Moulin Rouge! Music from Baz Luhrmann’s Film on double-vinyl for the first time on Friday (October 6). While Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya and Pink’s chart-topping “Lady Marmalade” is probably the first song that springs to mind from the soundtrack, the album is a treasure trove of Y2K oddities. For starters, there is Beck’s cover of David Bowie’s “Diamond Dogs” (produced by Timbaland, no less) and Bono & Gavin Friday’s elaborate take on T.Rex’s “Children Of The Revolution.”

It also houses the bulk of Nicole Kidman’s music career (“Come What May” and “One Day I’ll Fly Away” were international hits) and Ewan McGregor’s cover of “Your Song.” The album, which peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 and sold double platinum, is very much a product of its time — in the best possible way. What other project brought together talents as diverse as Fatboy Slim and Jose Feliciano? See the full tracklist below.
