Who wrote that song anyway?

Perhaps we might give a bit of credit to the composer and lyricists of "I Dreamed a Dream" for writing the kind of song that would fuel the socio-cultural phenomenon that is causing YouTube to nearly burst at its seams. When the recorded music stops, it is the song that rings in the world's ears.

Claude-Michel Schönberg wrote the music for Les Miserables and Alain Boublil and Herbert Kretzmer, wrote the lyrics.

Here's a lovely performance in Norwegian, and a lovely (though not professionally recorded) performance by Lea Salonga, and another lovely one by an unnamed singer here.
