I dreamed a dream

Many of you know I’m a sucker for musicals, and Les Miserables in particular, which I was fortunate to see a version of this year (finally) so when they did a cover of it on last weeks Glee, I couldn’t help but love this song. And I haven’t posted a song on my blog in a while either, so when I decided it was time to bring this back, the choice of song was easy. It has been performed countless times, and made even more famous by Susan Boyle (to be honest I’m not a big fan).
Idina Menzel (known from Wicked and Enchanted) and Lea Michele (Glee), probably have my favorite version of this song as of now… Enjoy!


I dreamed a dream in days gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame

He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came

And still I dreamed he’d come to me
That we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So diff’rent from this hell I’m living
So diff’rent now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

  1. I loved this version. I’m not a fan of the Boyle either.

  2. Nyydelig! Jeg har jo ikke sett Glee engang enda, men har blitt fan av å hørt coversangene! Og DET sier litt, fordi jeg liker ikke coversanger xD

  3. Idina Menzel❤ She is absolutely amazing. I would love to be able to see her performing live. One of my friends has seen her in Wicked, and said it was the best singing she's ever heard.

  4. nydelig:) når eg va liten så sang med den på sangundervisning:) på NYNORSK! “eg drøymde ein gong ung og øyr. at livet var så verdt å leva. eg drøymde kjærleik aldri døyr!”

  5. Elsker musikaler, er så utrolig kult å se/høre hva folk kan få til ^^

  6. Nydelig ^^

  7. Liker virkelig den versjonen der selv!🙂

  8. ååååh, jeg elsker Les Miserables, og denne versjonen er jo så fin også.😀

  9. Du er så god, IdaPida! Alltid så oppvekkende å få kommentarer fra deg❤

  10. Jeg elsker den sangen. Den er nydelig. Jeg pleide å synge den før, da jeg gikk på musikklinja og sang hver eneste dag. Gud, jeg savner den tiden.🙂 Heldigvis er jeg enda glad i å synge, så klarer nok nesten aldri å holde kjeften igjen når noe god musikk spilles.

    Jeg så Les Miserables for noen år siden på Lillestrøm. Jeg ble helt forelsket. Musikalen er rett og slett helt herlig. I love it. Særlig barna. Både den lille jenta og den lille gutten. Stemmene dems er til å smelte av.

    Foresten Ida, det er så hyggelig at du er innom med så fine kommentarer hele tiden. Makes me smile. Tusen takk for alle de støttende ordene du kommer med. Jeg elsker at du følger med meg!

    Håper du får en finfin helg!
