Spotlight on:

Seasons of Love (Rent)

Remember the love. 🙂

 

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
six hundred minutes,
five hundred twenty-five thousand
moments so dear.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
six hundred minutes,
how do you measure- measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets,
in midnights, in cups of coffee,
in inches, in miles,
in laughter, in strife?
In five hundred twenty-five thousand
six hundred minutes
how do you measure
a year in the life?
How about love? (3X)
Measure in love.
Seasons of love (Seasons of love)
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
six hundred minutes,
five hundred twenty-five thousand
journeys to plan.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
six hundred minutes,
how do you measure
the life of a woman or man?
In truths that she learned
or in times that he cried?
In bridges he burned
or the way that she died?
It’s time now, to sing out
though the story never ends.
Let’s celebrate,
remember a year
in the life of friends.
Remember the love (3X)
Measure in love.
Measure, measure your life in love.
Seasons of love…

From the musical (Broadway film/play) RENT, this song is a very popular piece among show and church choirs. Despite the complex musical arrangement especially at the end (when the soprano belts her thing), many still attempt to sing this melodic masterpiece of Jonathan Larson.

Though it’s a hard piece to sing, I still love it. Only a few nights ago, I was able to listen to Coro Tomasino’s rendition of the song. The clean notes only tell me that I need to practice more. :>

The message of the song is clear and simple: man’s life is measured not by any unit there is that science or mathematics can provide. The five hundred twenty-five thousand and six hundred minutes of a year cannot be measured alone by the times we face success or defeat.

So how do we really measure a year?

We measure life by the relationships we create.

We measure life in the smiles we put on other people’s faces.

We measure life by the number of people whose lives we have touched so dearly.

 

We measure life in LOVE. ❤ ❤ ❤
