It’s no secret that I love Les Miserables. The show has so many vivid, incredible characters that you can find one to fit any mood. Having an identity crisis? Listen to Jean Valjean’s songs! Have a bad cough? Go with Fantine. Maybe you are having some dating problems. In that case, Eponine is your girl.
Eponine’s big song, “On My Own,” is about painfully unrequited love, and even though it’s deeply personal, I wanted to share my own experience with a one-sided relationship. It seemed fitting.
THANK YOU to everyone who sent me Mad Lib suggestions last week. Hearing from you made me crazy happy, and all the hilarious suggestions were SO INSPIRING. I was worried I would post a video and immediately lose steam, but I could not WAIT to write this song and film this video. So, thank you, thank you — thrice! — thank you.
In case you were wondering, I did all my own stunts in this video. Mister was such a trooper during filming, but he was not pleased that I neglected to call his agent beforehand. FYI, we don’t always abuse each other that much. In fact, he is currently asleep (being a complete adorable dead weight) on my arm as I type this. I am losing feeling in all my fingers, but he is just so darn cute and soft — he can stay there as long as he wants.
P.S. If there are songs you’d like to hear in the future, please let me know!
