Sweeney Todd track/music links

Here's a couple of links I was delighted to find:

The track listings for the complete album of the Sweeney Todd soundtrack.

Without spoiling it for those who don't want to click, I read that list and I'm relieved, yeah. And here's something else:

Helena Bonham Carter singing "Wait"

Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter singing "My Friends"

(The links are streaming audio of the full songs, not just clips as they are on the Amazon site.) And again, I'm relieved. Carter's no stage belter, and she hardly displays any vibrato, but you hear the intimacy in her performance and her tone is true--I won't prefer her recordings to Angela Lansbury's any time soon, but I think it'll work for the film, I really do. Depp, on the other hand, sounds marvelous. His vocal phrases in "My Friends" gave me shivers, and he's got a gorgeous subtle tremolo that he pulls out at just the right moments. I am so looking forward to this!

Sweeney Todd's been my favorite musical since I was a teen. I tell everyone I only designate musicals as favorites if there's at least two deaths plus an onstage rape, which means the only other musical on my list is Man of La Mancha.
