Today we’re going to have a closer look at A Million Dreams – one of the many hit songs from The Greatest Showman – written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
In the film, it’s sung by the lead character – P. T. Barnum (then a boy), expressing his dreams to his future wife. Later in the song, his adult self takes over , recounting the same dreams.
Here is the original version.
So – some questions for you all as per last week.
- In what key is the song? Does it change at all?
- How many beats in a bar?
- How many bars in Verse 1, Bridge 1 and Chorus 1? 3 separate answers please.
- What are the notes played by the piano in the intro? 4 bars worth please.
- What are the first 4 chords of the Middle 8 section (after second chorus).
Please feel free to leave your answers as comments.
