This song is my favorite one in all musicals. And to make it better it is in my favorite musical. Except it didn’t make the final cut.
To this day, I don’t understand why, it is the most powerful piece, down to the last sigh Mimi gives. I love the lighting given to her face at the end and the heartbreak can be heard.
The first time I heard this song, I thought it was heartbreaking and then I saw the music video and it was even more so.
