The movie Rent came out recently, and I watched a couple of times this weekend. This got the music into my head, so then I listened to the original Broadway cast recording a couple of times. I just can't get tired of the music, no matter how much I listen to it. It is so powerful. It conveys so much joy, love, and sorrow that it is very difficult to condense it enough to talk about specifics. The music just draws you in and holds you from the beinning to the end of the show. I love the song "Will I?" because it is all the singers start at different times, so music and words just keep building and mixing together. My favorite three songs are "Seasons of Love," "One Song, Glory," and "Without You." Jonathan Larson certainly wrote some amazing stuff.
