Post Anybody hate the Just Can't Wait to be King scene?
That's my favorite part of the movie, and I recently saw the show on Broadway. I was so disappointed with what they did with the song. After seeing how amazing they did Circle of Life, I was so excited for the show.

But the staging on this song was so boring, but more important than that, the arrangement sucks all the rhythm and life out of the song.

The kid I saw sing it recently on Broadway was very disappointing, and had none of the rhythm or style of the original singer, and while I still think he just wasn't very good (and I hated the Spanish Zazu I saw instead of the normal portrayal), I think the arrangement did him no favors. I listened to the original soundtrack of the show, and the kid on that was a really really talented singer, but the arrangement really sucks a lot of the life and rhythm out of the song to me.
