When West enters the Echo Amusement Park, an organ is playing "The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze", a song composed in 1867 and inspired by the feats of Jules Léotard, a French gymnast who pioneered feats that are now standard circus routines. He also invented the tight-fitting garment that now bears his name.
