Of course it makes me cry and sob and weep and wail, but isn't that the true test of whether or not a song has touched your heart??
Oh no, wait a minute. I forgot. I never cry; everybody knows that.....
|"I Dreamed a Dream" is a
solo sung by
during the first act and the play's most famous number. Most of the
music is soft and melancholy, but towards the end becomes louder and
taut with frustration and anguish; as she cries aloud about the wretched
state of her life and her unfair mistreatment.
Some notable musical connections with this song include:
|"I Dreamed a Dream" is a song from the
It is a solo that is sung by the character
during the first act. The music is by
Claude-Michel Schönberg, with orchestrations by
John Cameron. The English lyrics are by
Herbert Kretzmer, based on the original
Alain Boublil from the original French production.
The song is a lament, sung by the anguished, dying Fantine, who has just been fired from her job at the factory and thrown onto the streets. She thinks back to happier days and wonders at all that has gone wrong in her life.
In the original Musical, the song occurs after Fantine has been fired, and before Lovely Ladies. In the film adaptation, these two musical numbers were swapped around, to place dramatic emphasis on Fantine's depressing descent into prostitution.

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/22/15:
|During a visit to the mental
asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which
defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.
"Well," said the Director, "We fill up a bathtub; we then offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."
"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."
"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"
