Worth the Pain - a playlist for Jean Valjean.
Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles (performed by Paul McCartney) All the lonely people, where do they all come from? || I Fought the Law - The Clash (Bobby Fuller Four cover) I needed money cause I had none./I fought the law and the law won. || Roll Away Your Stone - Mumford and Sons Darkness is a harsh term, don’t you think?/And yet it dominates the things I seek. || Only Remembered - Coope Boys and Simpson Thus would we pass from the earth and its toiling/ Only remembered by what we have done. || Long Way to Get - Bob Schneider There’s a man I’ve never met before who looks a lot like me / There’s a little place called heaven that I’ll probably never see || Leading Me Now - The Tallest Man on Earth To the site where I flew from you when your pace just scared my blind/ We will come back and joke of days when I sold you to the unkind. || My Girl - Otis Redding I got sunshine on a cloudy day. || Demons - Imagine Dragons I wanna hide the truth/ I wanna shelter you. || Ain’t Gonna Lose You - Brett Dennen I can’t stand the thought of another man. || Lay Down Your Weary Tune - Billy Bragg (Bob Dylan cover) Struck by the sounds before the sun/ I knew the night had gone. || Chimes of Freedom - Bob Dylan In the wild cathedral evening, the rain unraveled tales/ For the disrobed faceless forms of no position.
Original French Production of Les Miserables
HOLD THE FUCK UP
ARE THOSE CHAINS??? DO THE ENSEMBLE MEMBERS HAVE CHAINS ON THEIR WRISTS THE WHOLE TIME???? BECAUSE IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE THEY DO
OR IS IT SPECIFICALLY WHILE THEY’RE PLAYING THE POOR/OPPRESSED?? WAIT LET’S GO BACK AND LOOK AT WHO DOESN’T HAVE CHAINS.
- THE RICH PEOPLE IN THE FIRST PICTURE(IS THAT COSETTE’S WEDDING? I’M NOT SURE)
- THE FOREMAN (IT LOOKS LIKE FANTINE DOES HAVE CHAINS)
- THE THENARDIERS, LITTLE COSETTE, AND MAYOR!VALJEAN (ALTHOUGH IT KINDA LOOKS LIKE HE MIGHT STILL HAVE THE MANACLES HIDDEN UNDER HIS SLEEVES)
SO YEAH I’D SAY IT’S DEFINITELY A PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION OF OPPRESSION
AND LES AMIS HAVE BROKEN CHAINS WHEN THEY’RE DEAD ON THE BARRICADE (ALTHOUGH THE CHAINS SEEM INTACT IN THE ONE WITH JAVERT SO PRESUMABLY THE CHAINS BREAK WHILE THEY’RE DYING OR MAYBE DURING ONE OF ENJOLRAS’ SPEECHES THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE)
NOT TO MENTION THAT THEY’VE ALL GOT CHRIST POSES HAPPENING HOLY FUCK I CAN’T EVEN THE SYMBOLISM HERE HUGO WOULD BE SO PROUD
WHEN I INVENT TIME TRAVEL I AM GOING BACK IN TIME AND SEEING THIS PRODUCTION BECAUSE THIS IS AMAZING

Quick Combeferre doodle for amour-de-tous : rescuing and releasing a moth that wandered into the back room of the cafe Musain during some late night meeting. We all know he gave it some sage advice about fire safety delivered in a firm but gentle tone.
