Re: "King's Speech" director to take on "Les Miserables"
I can see your point however, On My Own
, sped up and lound and clear to show the emotions of Éponine, her revolation that Marius never loved her more than as a friend. Slowed down and in a lower key it works to show Fantine's despair and her momentary delusional state (Hows she calling to Cossette, likes she's near by), and her asking Valjean to take and care for Cossette.
And has been said before On My Own is the song many singers hope to be able to belt out with the emotion and power (Like my favorite Éponine, Lea Salonga) to really prove their pipes.
You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But Debbie...
