the collective facts i know about Panic! and Aladdin:
-Aladdin is Brendon’s favorite movie (most recently stated in an interview at a childrens hospital)
-when Jon and Brendon first met, they ended up singing the entire Aladdin album together because Brendon had it on his ipod
-when describing some songs from Cricket & Clover (the lost cabin album) to Pete Wentz, Ryan simply described some of them as “Aladdin”
-i have an old magazine clipping of Brendon in a teeny-bop magazine from 2006 where he says, “I’m just Aladdin looking for my Jasmine”. amazing.
-and this dork:
so, basically it’s just a mutually adored movie. aladdin rules.
as far as the moulin rouge, there’s a couple references to the place and the simple general idea. most of it comes with the fever era, where they took the vaudevillian vibe for their live shows from the basic concept of the moulin rouge, and even used the iconic windmill as a symbol throughout; on stage, on the old website, even in the box set and on single covers:
(sam also has the windmill tattooed on her yay go sam youre a giant nerd!)
