|Link to song - 'Impossible'|
'Impossible' is the anthem of the Cinderella musical, and deservedly so. It's an upbeat, catchy song, filled with all the things that people love most about the Cinderella story. A fairy godmother, dress transformations (both Marie and Ella), glass slippers and, of course, the golden pumpkin carriage. And the lyrics themselves - proclaiming that nothing is impossible, even for a plain country girl - are really the essence of what Cinderella is about. I love the Original Broadway Cast version of 'Impossible' (linked to above), because it's delightfully upbeat and energetic, with Laura Osnes giving a glorious performance of Ella (as always). Although I prefer the dress transformations at the Tonys', the 'normal' musical version is fine.
...The world is full of zanies and fools,
Who don’t believe in sensible rules,
And won’t believe what sensible people say,
And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes,
Keep building up impossible hopes,
Impossible things are happening every day!
