I Dream a Dream

 Off topic - I went to see Les Miserables the movie.  Was lucky enough to have seen the stage version on Broadway.

Frankly, the movie was disappointing (well, for me).  Russel Crowe, was one of the reasons I was disappointed.  A brilliant actor but a singer he is not.  Also do not understand the Oscar nomination of Hugh Jackman, he looks constipated most of the time.

But just to hear Anne Hathaway's maudlin rendition of I Dream A Dream is already worthy of every penny I paid for to see this film.  I'm not a fan but I am amazed at the emotional investment that this actress had given the song.  To be able to sing and sob at the same time, you need to be remarkable to be able to do that.
