Re: "King's Speech" director to take on "Les Miserables"

To me, the lyrics are what conveys the emotional intent and resonance of On My Own, moreso than the speed of the melody. Having said that, though, I do firmly believe that Taylor is going to be able to sing the song as it is meant to be sung, and only mentioned the idea of it being slowed down as an observation and as a sort of 'last-ditch' option on the off-chance that Taylor - as talented as she is - is physically unable to hit the notes on the traditional faster arrangement of OMO.
