Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals
The Contenders: Page 8
Earlier in the story, Shrek compared ogres to onions, saying that both have layers. And that may be true, but only at "Who I'd Be" does Shrek metaphorically start to peel said layers. One layer at a time, we find out that Shrek is adventurous, thrill-seaking, and poetic. And at his center, all he wants is the happy ending that he knows he can't have. An absolutely beautiful and heart wrenching song that deserves to be on this countdown.
This song gives me chills every time. I'd say most underrated musical number ever written. People write this musical off as childish. But those who give it a chance walk away with a whole different perspective.
