Singing a song of angry men for Bastille Day

It's Bastille Day and I thought it would be appropriate to post a song from Les Miserables - one of the most moving musical theatre productions I've ever seen.  'Do you hear the people sing - singing the song of angry men' seems also very appropriate for the times we're living in now.  Here it is sung in 17 languages by an international cast.





As a child of the 60s who believed that we could change the world and make it a better place for people (and animals) to live in, I am now a disillusioned and bewildered adult wondering where it all went wrong. This particular song from Les Mis expresses it all - here sung by Ruthie Henshall. 'I had a dream my life would be, so different from the life that I am living'
