Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #40 – “The Greatest Show,” from The Greatest Showman
40. “The Greatest Show,” from The Greatest Showman
It’s a really great way to start a show. It’s got the repetitive chants, and then builds to that great chorus. What I love about all the songs in this movie is that you want to be negative about them and find a way to downgrade them, and even just looking at the title, you wanna go, “Should that really be here?” And then you start listening to it, and you can’t. Because the songs are just fantastic. I tried to put this lower, find songs that would go above it and ultimately in this spot. Couldn’t do it. It’s a great song.
