Since Burlexe launched in November 2011, our burlesque show music has always been a big part of what we’re about, so we’ve finally pulled together the different tracks which have featured in all our shows …
Our Burlesque Show Music
Our burlesque shows feature monologues sharing our stories inspired by burlesque dancers past and present. Our herstory of showgirls is then punctuated by burlesque dancing and song.
We’ve always chosen songs that reflect the notion of burlesque, the stories featured in the shows and the songs performed by some of our guest performers like Kele le Roc and Javine Hylton as well as those which provide the soundtrack to our guest burlesque performers’ routines…
For example, Kele always used to intro the show with ‘It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World’ and bring the house down with Oleta Adam’s gospel flavoured ‘I Gotta Sing My Song’. While we couldn’t forget Amber Topaz’s classic routine to Benny Goodman and Julie London’s Come On-A My House which introed Luna Rosa’s naked monologue.
Now we’ve put together our burlesque show music so you can take the experience with you wherever. (And, like us, dance around in your underwear.)
We’re sure there’s a few we’ve missed out – please let us know! – but for your audio pleasure, here’s the hitherto Burlexe soundtrack. And not one unfloorfiller or emotive track amongst them…
Click into Spotify to enjoy everything from Imelda May to Edith Piaf; from Benny Goodman and his Orchestra to Basement Jaxx.
Not only is music the backbone of our show but, with a hostess like Kele Le Roc, how could we resist. Plus, every show ends with a dance-party.
We hope that feel-good feeling lasts all the way till the next time you are in our audience. Until then, think of us whilst you shake your thang.
