Even in death, few things on earth are gayer than Liberace.
Ghost hunters at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills have consistently recorded otherworldly shouts of “Boo!”
With a lisp. Which is hard to accomplish.
So in anticipation of Behind the Candelabra, the HBO original movie on the performer’s life and relationship with another man premiering on May 26, we proudly present the official soundtrack.
Filled with original recordings of the legendary pianist’s music, as well as new versions of signature songs as sung by Liberace’s modern-day portrayer, Michael Douglas, it’s a delightfully over-the-top album. “The Liberace Boogie,” for one, is hard to get out of our heads and we’re sure the visual will be even more enduring.
But most of all, this record represents the musical accomplishments of one epically talented man who just happened to be adored by women all over the world.
Story of our lives. Wear one fur-lined sequined cape and suddenly you’re a chick magnet.
