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..?
how about love..?
how about love..?
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 a 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..!
remember the love..!
remember the love..!
measure in love..!
seasons of love..!
seasons of love..!

Reprise: This song by the cast of the movie version of RENT is my weekend song to everyone! The message of the song is really simple! What are we actually living for? Are we too consumed by how much we earn? Are we so bothered at how much time we spent having fun or making enemies? What is really important to us? How do we measure success? Take sometime to think about it! If you measure your accomplishment by numbers, then you might be getting very harsh with yourself! Consider measuring your life in LOVE! If you want to hear the song just click on the title: SEASONS OF LOVE!

  1. ang ganda ng story of “Rent”. inspiratonal movie.

    • @ BarryCyrus..!
      Rent..!

      How do you document real life
      When real life is getting more
      Like fiction each day
      Headlines — bread-lines
      Blow my mind
      And now this deadline
      “Eviction — or pay”
      Rent!

      [ROGER]

      How do you write a song
      When the chords sound wrong
      Though they once sounded right and rare
      When the notes are sour
      Where is the power
      You once had to ignite the air

      [MARK]

      And we’re hungry and frozen

      [ROGER]

      Some life that we’ve chosen

      [TOGETHER]

      How we gonna pay
      How we gonna pay
      How we gonna pay
      Last year’s rent

      [MARK]

      We light candles

      [ROGER]

      How do you start a fire
      When there’s nothing to burn
      And it feels like something’s stuck in your flue

      [MARK]

      How can you generate heat
      When you can’t feel your feet

      [BOTH]

      And they’re turning blue!

      [MARK]

      You light up a mean blaze

      [ROGER grabs one of his own posters.]

      [ROGER]

      With posters —

      [MARK grabs old manuscripts.]

      [MARK]

      And screenplays

      [ROGER AND MARK]

      How we gonna pay
      How we gonna pay
      How we gonna pay
      Last year’s rent

      [Lights go down on the loft and go up on JOANNE JEFFERSON,]
      [who’s at the pay phone.]

      [JOANNE]

      [On phone]
      Don’t screen, Maureen
      It’s me — Joanne
      Your substitute production manager
      Hey hey hey! (Did you eat?)
      Don’t change the subject Maureen
      But darling — you haven’t eaten all day
      You won’t throw up
      You won’t throw up
      The digital delay —
      Didn’t blow up (exactly)
      There may have been one teeny tiny spark
      You’re not calling Mark

      [COLLINS]

      How do you stay on your feet
      When on every street
      It’s ‘trick or treat’
      (And tonight it’s ‘trick’)
      ‘Welcome back to town’
      Oh, I should lie down
      Everything’s brown
      And uh — oh
      I feel sick

      [MARK]

      [At the window]
      Where is he?

      [COLLINS]

      Getting dizzy
      [He collapses.]

      [MARK AND ROGER]

      How we gonna pay
      How we gonna pay
      How we gonna pay
      Last year’s rent

      [MARK and ROGER stoke the fire. Crosscut to BENNY’s Range Rover.]

      BENNY

      [On cellular phone]
      Alison baby — you sound sad
      I don’t believe those two after everything I’ve done
      Ever since our wedding I’m dirt — They’ll see
      I can help them all out in the long run

      [Three locales: JOANNE at the pay phone,]
      [MARK and ROGER in their loft, and COLLINS on the ground.]
      [The following is sung simultaneously.]

      [BENNY]

      Forces are gathering
      Forces are gathering
      Can’t turn away
      Forces are gathering

      [COLLINS]

      Ughhhhh–
      Ughhhhh–
      Ughhhhh– I can’t think
      Ughhhhh–
      Ughhhhh–
      Ughhhhh– I need a drink

      [MARK (reading from a script page)]

      “The music ignites the night with passionate fire”

      [JOANNE]

      Maureen — I’m not a theatre person

      [ROGER]

      “The narration crackles and pops with incendiary wit”

      [JOANNE]

      Could never be a theatre person

      [MARK]

      Zoom in as they burn the past to the ground

      [JOANNE (realizing she’s been cut off)]

      Hello?

      [MARK AND ROGER]

      And feel the heat of the future’s glow

      [JOANNE]

      Hello?

      [The phone rings in the loft. MARK picks it up.]

      [MARK]

      [On phone]
      Hello? Maureen?
      –Your equipment won’t work?
      Okay, all right, I’ll go!

      [MARK AND HALF OF COMPANY]

      How do you leave the past behind
      When it keeps finding ways to get to your heart
      It reaches way down deep and tears you inside out
      Till you’re torn apart
      Rent!

      [ROGER AND OTHER HALF OF COMPANY]

      How can you connect in an age
      Where strangers, landlords, lovers
      Your own blood cells betray

      [ALL]

      What binds the fabric together
      When the raging, shifting winds of change
      Keep ripping away

      [BENNY]

      Draw a line in the sand
      And then make a stand

      [ROGER]

      Use your camera to spar

      [MARK]

      Use your guitar

      [ALL]

      When they act tough – you call their bluff

      [MARK AND ROGER]

      We’re not gonna pay

      [MARK AND ROGER WITH HALF OF COMPANY]

      We’re not gonna pay

      [MARK AND ROGER WITH OTHER HALF OF COMPANY]

      We’re not gonna pay

      [ALL]

      Last year’s rent
      This year’s rent
      Next year’s rent
      Rent rent rent rent rent
      We’re not gonna pay rent

      [ROGER AND MARK]

      ‘Cause everything is rent

      ganda no..?πŸ˜‰
