55 Favorite Songs from Musicals #1: The ABC Cafe / Red And Black

I wanted to start this puppy up now, before my college classes (!!!!) start, because when they do I won't have much free time to write posts. XD
What a song to kick off the thing! Just a quick note. The songs in this little series are listed in alphabetical order, so they're not in order how much I like them. That would be way too hard for me to organize, since my favorite probably changes daily!

Anyhoo, this song is a number from Les Miserables (you'll be seeing a lot of that), and it's a scene where Marius goes to a meeting of the neighborhood revolutionary group, The Friends of the ABC. The leader, Enjolras is trying keep the focus on the upcoming Revolutionary Funtimes, but Marius keeps shifting the spotlight to his recently formed Love Life. I think that when played right, this song is both humorous and rather inspiring, and certainly one of the highlights.

It is time for us all to decide who we are
Do we fight for the right to a night at the opera, now?
Have you asked of yourself, what's the price you might pay?
Is this simply a game for rich, young boys to play?
The colors of the world are changing day by day.
Red! The blood of angry men!
Black! The dark of ages past!
Red! A world about to dawn!
Black! The night that ends at last!


    Er, anyways. I'm looking forward to this series! :) And hahaha, I know what you mean about the favorites--I can never settle down to just one. :D
