Musical Mondays: Colors

This week the theme is Colors, so I chose a song from one of my all-time favorite Broadway shows, Les Miserables. Yes, I like Broadway. A lot actually. Anyway, the song is called Red and Black. For those unfamiliar, Les Miserables is the story of several intertwining lives set against the backdrop of the French Revolution. In this scene, the students are in a cafe planning their attack on the French government, when Marius (one of the main characters) wanders in after having just met and fallen in love with Cosette. Lyrics are included with the video:

Apparently Pandora doesn't have much in the way of Broadway soundtracks, so instead I will list here five of my favorite songs from Les Mis, with links to their youtube videos as well. Enjoy!
  1. On My Own
  2. One Day More
  3. Bring Him Home
  4. Stars
  5. Do You Hear the People Sing
Of course, I love almost every song in this show, so I would highly encourage anyone who likes what they've heard of it so far to check out the others as well. And if you get the chance to see it performed live, go -- you won't be sorry. There is a reason this show was so popular for so long.

As always, if you're playing along and posting your own Musical Monday, please add your link below:
