Which Les Mis songs do you think could change the world? :D (omg I'm too original haha)
I already answered this but there’s room for another!:D
Aside from DYHTPS and maybe the Finale (which is really a reprise of DYHTPS anyway, GEEZ that’s an Excellent Song)
I really think Beggars at the Feast is super underrated (though so is the whole Thenardier plotline,tbh). “Clear away the barricades and we’re still here” is one of the best lines in the whole show, even if I’m not sure that it’s like Intentionally good, it gets at one of the political messages of the story so well
(and now gives me intense 1848 emotions but I don’t expect a not-19C/French-history-nerding person to get that because good grief why would they)
Would just like to bring to everyone’s attention that in today’s matinée of Les Mis on the West End, Grantaire literally SLAPPED ENJOLRAS’ ASS AS THEY RAN OFFSTAGE AFTER DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING. As you were.
I bet that Grantaire is the kind of guy that buys books from charity shops and then goes through them trying to find any notes or anything that the previous owner had left.
But then one time, he manages to find a really, really old one, probably from a second-hand bookshop that specialises in antiques. And it’s from 1831 and all the notes in it are super faded and near-impossible to read but he treasures it because the person writing them is so passionate and he reminds him of Enjolras…
