Panic! at the Disco song titles. Les Misérables chapter headings. Martin Scorsese films. What do these things have in common? That’s right! They’re all so long I typically have to take a break halfway through to go get a snack!
Whenever P!ATD releases an album, you just know you’re in for songs like “The Piano Knows Something I Don’t Know,” “The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage,” and “Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off.” But did you know Victor Hugo was doing the exact same thing 200 years ago? In Les Misérables, you will encounter such chapters as “The Enigma Becomes Doubly Mysterious,” “The Dead Are in the Right and the Living Are Not in the Wrong,” and “Marius, While Seeking a Girl in a Bonnet, Encounters a Man in a Cap.”
