The Three Faces Of Lady Marmalade

I was looking for a music video to post when I thought about Labelle's sexy disco hit Lady Marmalade from 1975, which I've always thought was a great tune. Well I found the original Labelle video on YouTube, but also I found a great version by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mưa, and Pink for the Moulin Rouge! movie, and also a very funny Mad parody version of the latter.  So please check out the Three Faces of Lady Marmalade.

There is also a lot of interesting background from Wikipedia.  For example, did you know:

"The song's chorus "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ce soir)?" means "Do you want to sleep with me (tonight)?" in French, and is an unsubtle invitation for sexual intercourse. The same line appeared previously in the play A Streetcar Named Desire, coming from the promiscuous Blanche DuBois."
