The Top Ten

1
One Day More
This song is just outstanding. It is by far my favorite song in Les Misérables. Every time I listen to it I get this giddy feeling. It gets stuck in my head. Its just amazing. I love how they have like seven people each singing a different song at one time and it STILL goes together! Its brilliant and beautiful!

Best song of them all! It's like a huge mash-up of all the songs and so good! Gives me chills every time!
Gives me chills! I wish that I had a French flag to wave around whenever I listen to it! Tomorrow we'll discover what our God in Heaven has in store! One more dawn! One more day! ONE DAY MOREE!

2Do You Hear the People Sing?
This song just really lifts your spirits and gets you into a patriotic mood. It has a catchy tune and is hard to forget, which I love.

It touches heart! "do you hear the people sing, singing the song of angry men? Its is the music of a people who will not be slaves again" so touchy!
The Finale version is why I'm voting this piece. Truely one fantastic piece from the best musical in existance! I do hear the people sing!

3On My Own
Samantha Banks' performance in this song is easily the best surprise of the movie. Anne Hathaway's version of "I Dreamed a Dream" is positively brilliant and one for the ages, but "On My Own" in this movie totally caught me by surprise, with how good it is...
I love this song. I keep listening to it over and over thinking of people who the song reminds me of. I feel like crying, its just a really good song
This song is absolutely angelic. In the movie, Samantha Barks just absolutely blows you away with her perfoemance of this song.

4I Dreamed a Dream
This song is so sad, and makes you feel terrible for Fantine. And the emotion in Anne Hathaway's voice doesn't help.

I love this song especially by Anne Hathaway
We all have dreams

5Empty Chairs at Empty Tables
By far the best most emotional song!
It's my best and I can't help but cry when I'm down and listening to it
The saddest song in Les Mis for sure.

6Stars
Javert is my dream role, and the song gives me goosebumps every time I hear it, which is just about five times or more a day. I AM THE LAWR!
I was listening to Stars when I read this and I agree. GOOSEBUMPS!
I love Philip Quast's version of this song

7Master of the House
ALL of them deserve to be number one but I chose this because it's cheeky, lively and great to sing along to.

9A Heart Full of Love
It paired with on my own are the most tear jerking songs up until near the end song in my opinion. You can feel all the emotion. You smile with cosette and marius, but you also can sit there and cry along with eponine. I dreamed a dream is the only other one that does hat to a person up until literally like right before the barricade.
I loveé it vert much
This is literally the cutest song ever. Marius and Cosette are also my 2 favorite characters in the musical. I know that this song is super cheesy, but those types of songs tend to draw my attention.

10Red and Black
I'm a little biased, Enjolras is my favorite character
I love the barricade boys, they don't have too large of a part but they stand for so much!

Enjolras is my favorite character, and I love the choice Marius has to make

The Contenders

11At the End of the Day Listen to sample

12Lovely Ladies
The tune itself is cheerful and bouncy, but underneath it is a very dark, twisted song!

13The Confrontation
I completely love this song, I really do. I love the never version with Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe so, so much. I think they are beautiful performers together.
However my personal favourite is the Thenardier's Master of the House! :)
I'm obsessed with it I love the way they conjoin awesome

14A Little Fall of Rain
It's just very very sad. A girl who knew she would never get the boy she wanted sacrificed herself for him dying happily. The ending is the saddest part, especially in the movie "... and rain, will make the flowers... grow" :'(
Oh god the feels...

15Bring Him Home
Never cried more at a song than this and On My Own. Absolutely beautiful
This has so much feeling and pathos, especially when sung by the wonderful Alfie Boe
Its really touching. It shows you how much Jean Valjean cares about everyone.

16Javert's Suicide
The pure pain and confusion in this song (especially when sung by Quast) is perfect.
A wonderfully edn to a great story line

23The Final Battle
One of the best songs when accompanied by visuals. Not only is the prelude a wonderful song just in general and the BE FRE part (chills), but when all of these attacks and drama degrade into the most epic final battle in history, not because of the actual battle (which is pretty realistic as far as battles go), but because all your feelings you've been building up this whole act are finally let out into one of the most expected-but-heart-wrenching-scenes ever.
