What songs still get it (or are maybe better from the film):

"Can You Hear the People Sing?"

Movie Version:

London Recording:

The spirit of community and revolution that is so important to the musical is on full display in the film's version of this one.

"Prologue"

Movie Version:

London Recording:

Say what you want about Russell Crowe's rock star voice, but the film's terrifying prologue, with Valjean working on the chain gang nearly drowning, is effective at being what it needs to be aurally commanding.

"On My Own"

Movie Version:

London Recording:

Grown-up Eponine always brings down the house as she gives up Marius, and Samantha Barks may have just made a career doing just that.

"Red and Black"

Movie Version:

London Recording:

The stage's mostly forgettable dude rallying cry is carried and made into something completely new by rising stars -- and heartthrobs -- Eddie Redmayne and Aaron Tveit.
