Theme songs!okay i just had to say this because the idea has been bugging me for a while
possible theme song for your favorite character? doesn't necessarily have to be from the musical
example: Feuilly: Learn To Be Lonely from Phantom of the Opera
or or or
Save the World from Kim Possible
||FANTINE: I'd Give my life for you. From Miss Saigon|
Teehee, my audition song.
Also (after I Dreamed A Dream) from Miss Saigon, Movie In My Mind.
||This might sound a little weird, but for Enjolras I'd pick Citizen/Soldier by 3 Doors Down.|
||Wow sis. You came back.|
||cosette - i feel pretty from West Side Story|
JVJ - Donde estan los ladrones? by Shakira
Marius - On the Street Where You Live (My Fair Lady)
||Marius: Creep by Radiohead|
Eponine-"Screw Loose" from Cry Baby. (this could be my theme song...)
Fantine- "It sucks to be me" from Avenue Q (cruel, I know, but it makes sense)
Cosette- "All I ask of you" from Phantom-well, she kinda needs Marius for this though...
Javert- "I Hate People" from "A Christmas Carol" (the Albert Finney one)
Jehan Prouvaire- "Where Are You?" from Spamalot.
Enjolras- *braces herself for a bunch of attacks*..."Defying Gravity"? Okay, its for the whole rebelling against the goverment for those who have no voices thing! See there's some reasoning here!
Javert: I'll Be Watching You (the Phillip Quast cover of course)
Valjean: Legal Assassin
Enjolras: We Are the Champions; Love is a Battlefield XD (this is for all the slash fans)
Fantine: She Didn't Have Time (It's a country song about a single mother, in case anyone was wondering)
Eponine: I'm So Lonely; I'm Not That Girl *hides*
Marius: I second On the Street Where You Live; also Johanna...except replace it with Cosette...XP
Cosette: Come What May (with Marius)
Montparnesse: Epiphany; My Friends
I Loved your "I'm Not That Girl" suggestion. One of my favorite songs from Wicked! No need to hide! That made my day! (as you can see, I really like Wicked)
||I used be excessively obsessed with Wicked...now I've discovered the awsomeness that is Kuntze/Levay and the world of German musicals. As you can clearly tell by by sig and avatar, among other things XD|
Everytime I listen to "I'm not that girl" I always think of Eponine. And theres no need to hide. I quite like wicked.
That actually suits them quite well. Im some ways Les Mis is like Phatom (except eponine wouldn't teach Marius how to sing and kidnap him when hee falls in love with Cosette, then threatan to kill Cosette unless Marius marries her...) Maybe Les Mis is nothing like the phantom.
Enjolras: 'This is the Moment' from Jekyll and Hyde & also 'The Impossible Dream'
Courfeyrac: 'Seasons in the Sun' by Terry Jacks
Jehan: 'Tell My Father'
I don't know if any of you are familiar with it, but parts of "Uprising" by Muse always make me think of Enjolras:
Come let the revolution take its toll,
If you could flick a switch and open your third eye,
You'd see that we should never be afraid to die,
Rise up and take the power back,
It's time the fat cats had a heart attack,
They know that their time's coming to an end,
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend
They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We will be victorious
