Also as I just listened to three different cast recordings in a row I can now say that I like Johnny Depp’s Sweeney the least but he says ‘Johanna’ the Most Correctly (i.e. he is the only one who says the H and even he is not really consistent with it) so he’s now my favorite? Oops.
The Burton version emphasized acting over singing, but even so the score ends up being the star of the movie for me. I apologize to all those who rank it below other versions, and am not arguing with them, but I love it anyway.
