Post Song Discussion: "A New Life"
Not exactly the most underrated J&H song, but hardly the standard that 'This is the Moment' or 'Once Upon a Dream' have become. It reminds me of songs like 'Normandy' or 'You'll Never Get Away From Me' in that they establish ideas that never transpire. My favorite memory of this song is when my college did it last year. We used pre-recorded music on a computer program and it shorted out right before "A New Life". So, our Lucy sang the whole song a capella; it was probably the longest five minutes of her life! So, who else loves this great song?

I do! This song has great feeling and helps to define the character really well. It's on my iPod.

I never really gave it much attention I was always focused on 'Dangerous Game', 'No One Knows Who I Am', 'Someone Like You' and 'Once Upon a Dream' but after doing the show three years ago I've realised it's a really great song when done right like our Lucy did (it was the song that she stole the show with) and not as easy as it seems. So I have a newly found respect for it and I'm surprised that for everyone in general it's not on par with 'Someone Like You' as being a favourite!

I realize this topic hasn't been visited in 3 months, but I love this song enough to put in my 2 cents. This song speaks to me in so many ways. Granted, I'm currently trying to redefine myself in a brand new place away from all of my friends and family. But I'd be lying if I said that I didn't listen to this song over and over again seeking the courage I needed to make the change I needed for myself.
