So, I'm a Gleek, although I tried to fight the urge. That's really here nor there, except that being one has made me focus more on music in movies – and musical movies!

The Better Half is a big Rent fan, both the Broadway show and the movie, and thus can be thanked for getting me on the bandwagon.

Seriously, though, I can never listen to “Seasons of Love” without choking up a little.
