Everyone I've talked to about The Last Five Years has said they hate Jamie for what he does to Cathy. I always thought this song was a startlingly eloquent defense for his actions, and I couldn't help feeling for both of them.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
