  • August 23, 2007 Absolutely a classic worth listening to!

    All I can say is that these songs bring back such great memories,and to me they're unforgettable pieces that should be passed on from generation to generation. I've been looking so hard to find a book that has all of the Scrooge songs in such a great...

    arrangement, and I'm so glad I found it!

    I have found most of Leslie Bricusse's lyrics for movie music shallow and redundant. However, it seems that when he was creating "Scrooge" he decided to actually write a musical with some depth. His score is not afraid of complexity (the chords, tongue-twisting patter, pschological depth, and wordplay...

    of "I Hate People" will make Sondheim fans smile), but he also writes some of his most memorable tunes ("Thank You Very Much," along the lines of Bart's "Consider Yourself" is infectious), surprising considering he usually solely wrote lyrics for movies. It disappoints one that this is the only edition wherein one can find the heartbreaking, "You," (a gem when performed well); seeing as the original score is coupled with a slew of ridiculous ditties from the various stage versions, which pale in comparison. If the songs from the movie had been available alone, the book may have cost less. Instead, one must pay for seven less effective numbers...
