Re: "Something There" vs "Human Again"
"Something There" has been my favorite song and scene in the movie since forever. when I was in the show and learned Human Again, it was my least favorite song in the show. It goes on FOREVER. And unless you have a huge stage and talented dancers, there's not a lot you can do with the song. And oh, gawd, the high note at the end that goes on forever and ever....
I do like the counter-melody that the sopranos have during the last round of the chorus though. (the "ah"s). It does give the musical a better showcase of Belle and the Beast's developing friendship with the whole reading the book thing, which they only very briefly allude to in the movie.
A decent addition to the stage show, not necessary in the movie.
also, I'm a huge sucker for the sleigh bells in Something There in the movie score.
They get me every time.
