I’ve loved musicals ever since I was a child, but no musical gripped me more than Rent. I’d wanted to see it ever since it first came on Broadway, but I wouldn’t get my chance until a tour came to my town in celebration of the movie coming out in 2005. And that’s when I first heard “Seasons of Love”. It instantly became one of my favorite songs. It breaks down time into that famous lyric “525,600 minutes / 525,000 moments so dear / 525,600 minutes / How do you measure a year?” The song reflects on everything comprises a life from cups of coffee to sunsets. And in the end, life is really measured in love. “Seasons of Love” has been my anthem and a comfort in difficult times. I’ve known friends who used this as their wedding song, because it so encompasses part of what we are here for – to love!
