Awesome / Evita

Go To

  • "Buenos Aires", Eva's Take That! song to Magaldi and all her detractors back home, proclaiming she's going to become famous.
  • "A New Argentina". The multi-faceted battle of Eva rallying the descamisatos to gain Juan's freedom, then after a brief interlude for his release from jail and their wedding, they jump right into the presidential election.
  • "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina". No matter the production, this song is guaranteed to be a showstopper.
    • In the film, Madonna successfully managed to procure the balcony of the actual Casa Rosada for this number.

    • "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina" is absolutely amazing. First off,the lyrics. They're just so powerful, especially when combined with the Large Ham awesomeness. "The truth is, I NEEEEEEVEEEEEER left you!" The pure emotion is stellar, and Eva is just radiating triumph. It makes me want to start cheering "EV-A! EV-A! EV-A!"
  • "Rainbow Tour", before its sudden slide into Tear Jerker. Eva is so triumphant, and it's a wardrobe department's dream.
  • Eva's death. "I saw the lights, and I was on my way." It manages to be both tragic and triumphant.
