[Be prepared for a glut of Les Mis songs over the next few days - I think the next four or five are all LM]
In My Life probably wouldn't have made it on to this list a few months ago but after seeing the film's version, I really started to like this song. Amanda Seyfried is perfect as Cosette, both acting and voice wise, and her portrayal was the first one that really made me like Cosette. As a certain someone pointed out, Cosette is described as a 'lark' in the brick and Amanda's voice sounds very fluttery and birdlike :)
In my life,
There are so many questions and answers that somehow seem wrong.
In my life,
There are times when I catch in the silence the sigh of a faraway song.
And it sings,
Of a world that I long to see,
Out of reach,
Just a whisper away, waiting for me...
I also like this song because I think it's one of Marius' best parts (any Marius, except for one ;). His lines are pure poetry ("In my life, she has burst like the music of angels, the light of the sun!") and almost every Marius I've seen during this scene has adorable acting (especially when it comes to swinging Eponine around). There was this one In My Life video on Youtube (which I can't find now) that had the cutest Marius/Eponine/Cosette ever. I had a perpetual grin on my face while was watching it :)
Do you like this song? What is your opinion of Cosette?
