Seasons of Love is a song from the Broadway musical Rent, written and composed by Jonathan Larson.

While in the musical it is the opening song of the Second Act, in the movie adaptation its position is changed and it becomes the first song of the film.

In the musicalEdit

After the party at the Life Café, where they have sung La Vie Boheme, the main characters line up on the stage. The rest of the cast join them and they start to sing.

In the movieEdit

The movie starts with the eight main characters lined up on the stage of an empty theatre. From stage left there are: Mimi, Benny, Maureen, Collins, Roger, Joanne, Angel and Mark. Joanne and Collins sing the solo part instead of the unnamed soloists of the stage version.

LyricsEdit

Company:
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets
In midnights, in cups of coffee
In inches, in miles
In laughter, in strife
In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?

How about love?
How about love?
How about love?
Measure in love

Seasons of love
Seasons of love

Female soloist:
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand journeys to plan
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?

Male soloist:
In truth that she learned
Or in times that he cried
In bridges he burned
Or the way that she died

Company:
It's time now to sing out though the story never ends
Let's celebrate
Remember a year in the life of friends

Remember the love
(Female soloist: Oh you got to you got to remember the love)
Remember the love
(Female soloist: You know that love is a gift from up above)
Remember the love
(Female soloist: Share love, give love, spread love)
Measure in love
(Female soloist: Measure, measure your life in love)

Company:
Seasons of love
Seasons of love

Mark, Angel, Joanne, Roger, Collins, Maureen, Benny and Mimi:
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets
In midnights, in cups of coffee
In inches, in miles
In laughter, in strife
In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?

How about love?
How about love?
How about love?
Measure in love

Seasons of love
Seasons of love

Joanne:
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand journeys to plan
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?

Collins:
In truth that she learned
Or in times that he cried
In bridges he burned
Or the way that she died

Mark, Angel, Joanne, Roger, Collins, Maureen, Benny and Mimi:
It's time now to sing out though the story never ends
Let's celebrate
Remember a year in the life of friends

Mark, Angel, Roger, Collins, Maureen, Benny and Mimi:
Remember the love
(Joanne: Oh you got to you got to remember the love)
Remember the love
(Joanne: You know that love is a gift from up above)
Remember the love
(Joanne: Share love, give love, spread love)
Measure in love
(Joanne: Measure, measure your life in love)
