Music: The Greatest Showman

"The Greatest Showman" blog-entry fever is not over yet. Here's three of my favourite original song that made a deep connection with me from the greatest soundtrack of this movie. Enjoy!

A Million Dreams
Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Sung by the young P.T Barnum(Ziv Zaifman) to his future wife Charity(Michelle Williams). Later on the songs joined by no greater than old  P.T Barnum(Hugh Jackman).  He tells her of his dreams for the future and explains his confidence that if they work hard for it, they will come true.


Rewrite the Stars
Song of forbidden love written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. A duet between Zac Efron (playing a rich white playwright called Phillip Carlyle who becomes P.T. Barnum's partner) and Zendaya (who portrays Anne Wheeler, a poor black acrobat and trapeze artist).



This is Me
Rousing song of self-acceptance written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Sung by Hawaii native Keala Settle who portrays the bearded lady, Lettie Lutz in the movie. "This Is Me" is a fight song for people who are not accepted by society.
