Bourbon Street is a famous street in the historical French Quarter of New Orleans (Louisiana, USA). It is probably the best known street in New Orleans for its bars and restaurants, an incredible number of shops and also strip clubs.
It is a very nice street that retains much of its history. Every year the Mardi Gras Festival takes place here. It really looks like a place in another time dimension, let’s say some hundred years ago?
No wonder then that British musician Sting (yes, the former member of the band The Police) chose Bourbon Street and its fascinating 19th century flavour as the setting for his song “Moon over Bourbon Street“, which is said to have been written to describe a vampire from “Interview with a vampire” by Anne Rice (have you watched the film?).
The song describes indeed someone between a monster and a serial killer…
the brim of my hat hides the eye of a beast
I’ve the face of a sinner but the hands of a priest
oh, you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
while there’s a moon over Bourbon Street
Why don’t you listen to the SONG and write down a profile for this criminal? For example, what his modus operandi is, and who is probably going to be his next victim…
Let’s play investigators! 😉
