I just think that it's not only a better song for that part of the show but it gets the point across better.


This post also got lost in the shuffle and I'm not sure if Hans saw it.


I saw it. Don't the two songs say different things, so that they aren't interchangeable at all?

Someone Else's Story from Chess is beautiful. I prefer it sung by Svetlana than Florence, it gives more material to an underdeveloped character.

I agree. But somewhere I have the revised text that was tweaked to suit Svetlana even better. I wonder why it was not made the official text.

I don't know. If I remember correctly, I have the text in my archive at my mother's home in another part of the country. I can try to remember to look for it when I go home for Christmas?

Out of curiosity, is that the lyric from the Sydney production?

I have no idea. I used to haved the habit of collecting curiosities like that when I was younger and the internet was newer, and I'm sure I never developped the habit of remembering the source, I fear.

I recently bought the new recording og Marry Me a Little, and I think ny new favoritt song in Thor cathegory Mustafa be Rainbows, which was intebded (at least) for a film version of Into the Woods. Does anybody know if it will be included in the actual film?
