Song: Stars CD: Les Misérables [2010 Cast Album] Singer: Norm Lewis Composer: Claude-Michel Schönberg
Note: Out of the many renditions of this song that I've heard, this one sung by Norm Lewis is my favorite. Wow, can that guy sing! *Please note that while I enjoy this song, there are themes/songs/language from this musical that I don't necessarily endorse. Watch and listen with your own discernment.*
Chorus (singing): Who's strong and brave, here to save the American Way? Who vows to fight like a man for what's right night and day? Who will campaign door-to-door for America, Carry the flag shore to shore for America, From Hoboken to Spokane? The Star Spangled Man with a plan!
You know those days when you wake up, and before you're even aware of the world around you, you've got a song stuck in your head? That happens to me more than I can say... almost on a daily basis. Well, to honor those lovable, stick-in-your head songs, I'm starting a new series here on A Hundred and One Titles. What's it called? Simple -- Stuck in My Head (or SIMH for short as you can tell from the title of this post). Mozart makes babies smarter, right? Music is very important. How can I run a blog of a hundred and one titles and never mention the glories of music? And besides, this gives me a chance to showcase my favorite composers.
Well, today's installment for the first post in this series is the song that refused to desert me yesterday. Ready?
Song - Up is Down
Soundtrack - Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Composer - Hans Zimmer
