I Sing Like a Girl

Something else I am very much looking forward to, the new film of the musical Les Miserables.

I’ve adored the show ever since I first saw it at the theatre in London back in the late 1980s, and the song ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ is a particular highlight, sending shivers up my spine every time I hear it.

I can still remember The Imaginary Girlfriend ringing me up on a Saturday evening to tell me to turn on the TV to hear Susan Boyle perform the song.

Anyway, I shall probably be going to see the film, starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe, with a fellow Les Mis fan and this morning, after discovering this trailer I rang her up so that she could listen to Hathaway’s rendition.

Afterwards she told me that she thought it sounded like a man.

Specifically, she thought it sounded like me screeching in a high falsetto.

Okay, Hathaway may not be the best Fantine ever, but she doesn’t sound that bad.

The film certainly looks to be lavishly produced.
