Song of the Day: "Suddenly"

Who doesn't love a musical?

Becky and Chris, for 2.

But I can think of no better way to wrench every ounce of angst out of a story than to sing exactly what you're feeling. Why act when you can act while singing? Or act while singing and dancing (take that Richard Burton)?!

Actually I love a good musical, and I really love a bad musical. But I've never seen Les Miz. I probably will, in the not-too-distant future. And when I do, I will hear this song because, and I want to point this out, this song is real and not a parody song written by the South Park dudes. And it will probably get an Oscar nomination.

Where it will lose to some piece of shit from Randy Newman.

Oh, I should probably point out that the very thing that makes seeing bands live sooo much better than listening to albums or CDs or whatever also makes seeing musicals live a superior experience to movies or other video media. I got to see Hugh Jackman in the wonderfully awful The Boy from Oz and he is an amazing performer and I don't just say that because he's hot as fuck, but also he is hot as fuck.

This song is still a bit much though.
