Changed my mind a bit - went for I Dreamed A Dream. Mostly because other people do it better - and I don't like the lyric alteration.

"I Dreamed a Dream" is my second least favourite song on the album. Part of that is I think the English lyrics are absurdly melodramatic, but I also just don't care for the song itself. :snigger:

I watched the theatre version and found it boring. I tried to watch the film after the rave reviews but got bored after 5 minutes, fast forwarded to the Oscar winning IDAD bit which I did like as it was very angsty (not sugary sweet like Joe's album version) and then stopped watching.

So you are not entirely alone BR  ;)

Yes - so I wonder why Joe's IDAD is the Classic song that tends to go into the compilations ?

Though I agree with Taco that it's much better live ( though it's only been as part of JBJ if my memory serves me right? )

The theatre version is amazing.
The film version is pretty bad ;) I Dreamed A Dream is awful - just my opinion of course ;) I agree that Joe's version is too sugary. But it needs to be sung better than Anne Hathaway can sing. Her version was a bit a la Rebecca Ferguson - another of my pet hates  :blush:

I don't particularly like IDAD, (and hate the album version) - but Joe singing it live (in JBJ) is pretty special - so I can't vote for that just yet.  :-)


Thanks to Mihi for my sig  :)

Time to kick off Round 5 - leaving after Round 4 are "She Was Beautiful" (8 votes) and "Il Mio Cuore Va" (7 votes).

9th: She Was Beautiful (8/16 - 50%)



The instrumental itself is so lyrical and evocative, it needs no embellishment or accompaniment in my opinion. Joe sung it very well though.


8th: Il Mio Cuore Va (My Heart Will Go On) (7/16 – 43.8%)



Joe’s voice and delivery take what was in its original English form a corny, overdone song and make it sublime and moving.  I'm very fond of this version. :cry:

Results so far:

8th: Il Mio Cuore Va (My Heart Will Go On) (7/16 – 43.8%)
9th: She Was Beautiful (8/16 - 50%)
10th: I Dreamed a Dream (8/22 – 36.4%)
11th: Va Pensiero (9/19 - 47.4%)
12th: Hear My Prayer

I've voted for TWYA again. This is the one song which doesn't seem effortless for Joe to me ( plus I have a bee in my bonnet about any song where "you" is sung as "chew")
