It wouldn't be Rent without What You Own.

I think that they should scrap the score and start from scratch.

I think the movie should be an homage to such greats as Webber and Schwartz.

But Really. If One Song Glory isnt in it, What You Own, La Vie Boheme, or Seasons of Love isnt in it, It wouldnt be the same re: What songs do you really want in the rent movie

Well. Then. It wouldn't be Rent, and they may just call it "Lease". :)

*dumbfounded* huh? It would still be RENT. Of course it wouldn't be "Rent" as in "like the stage version"

How about sticking Defying Gravity right at the end? Nothing could make the finale much more cheesy anyway . . . re: What songs do you really want in the rent movie

Nice suggestion Eastwickian! Would throw off some people...hehe.

I still think Contact can be done, without pushing the R rating over the edge....

I want to know how ajayspak knows it's not possible to get all the songs into the movie.
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

RENT, LMC, OSG, AD, HNY, WYO, ICY, ICY:R, LVB, LVB B, TMOLM, GL, YE..... Ok, all of them!

And "Open Road" would rock in the movie! That's one of the songs from the NYTW production that I really enjoyed.

Read the Chbosky screenplay where they had Roger listening to Open Road whenever he goes to Santa Fe...but cried when they put What You Own in the credits. I think the Open Road bit would be kick-ass too.

But thankfully Anthony posted on here that WYO wasn't going to be over the credits, but done in the movie. Making me one very happy Rent-head. ^^

I would really miss Take me or leave me, Glory (but its not RENT without Glory!), La Vie Boheme, I'll cover you (Reprise) and Another Day, in addition to Life support. At least its pretty much definite that Seasons of love will remain, that song is unremovable. It'd be like making the Phantom movie without Music of the night.
There's always room for pathos - and jazz hands.

Oh who am I kidding, NO SONG is disposable!! Jonathan Larson never wrote a song that didn't mean anything. But, I have to say, if anything has to be cut, I wouldn't cry if Santa Fe and We're Okay were left out. Especially if other amazing songs like Open Road are included!! But if ANY other song isn't in the movie, I will be highly upset. I read the Chbosky screenplay, and while I enjoyed it, it bothered me that so many of Mark's lines were given to Maureen, and that there was NO Light My Candle. It was a good start, but i'm glad Columbus is coming up with his own script.

Yeah, I could live without We're Okay. It's not really crucial to the show, if you ask me.

Anthony has already listed a track list of the movie and not all the songs are there.
