I don't know why my friend Gregory was so crabby about the movie "Rent." He said it was terrible and that it didn't translate well to film.
I, never having seen the Broadway version, thought the movie was great. I really like a lot of the songs, and I thought the film soundtrack sounded better than the original Broadway cast album. Of course, most of the singers are the same anyway. Except that I much preferred Rosario Dawson's film portrayal of Mimi over the Broadway actress.
So here's me thumbing my nose at you Gregory, although I'll still allow you to accompany me for long nights of Broadway belting at Marie's.
I guess I'm not much of a queen, seeing as it took me this long to learn the songs from a major Broadway hit.
You're living in America at the end of the millennium
You're living in America where it's like the Twilight Zone
And when you're living in America at the end of the millennium
You're what you own
