Part of the Song a Day Project! Also part of Transformative Songs Week in honour of the OTW March Drive.

While a song itself may be original — it can exist in a transformative context. Today's song is from RENT, which is an AU musical version of the opera Le Bohème. I picked Light My Candle because it's one of the points of closes convergence between the two works. If you check out the libretto (search for Rodolfo/Roger's line "I have no inspiration." to hop to the right part), you can see how closely the two match!

Hat tip for the lyrics.

Awesome AU songs are another reason I support the OTW.
