So now I'm playing my DVD of the Angela Lansbury/George Hearn Broadway performance, just to hear for real the missing bits that played in my head as I enjoyed the movie (and I do recommend, if you've not seen it, to try to rent or borrow it, as it'll add extra fillips of meaning to the Depp/Bonham-Carter performances).
The only other thing I really missed was "The Ballad of Sweeney Todd" ... understandable that it couldn't be performed throughout the movie as it is on stage (where appropriate verses are sung by the street people during quick scene changes), but I was hoping it'd be accompanying the end credits. Ah well ...
To me they're both wonderful flavour variations of the same thing ... I'll certainly one day have the DVD of the new version sitting beside the old on my shelf. :-)
And because I can't resist:
"Hey! Hoy! Sailor boy!
Want it snugly harboured?
Open the gate, but dock it straight,
I see it lists to starboard!"
