Fame Trivia Light One Candle Edited DVD scene

More edits on the Season 2 DVD. This time the end performance of "Light One Candle" from the episode "..Help From My Friends" has been edited to remove all the words. Instead we just get the choir humming.

Interestingly the person who wrote the Lyrics, Allan Sherman also wrote the lyrics to "Did I Ever Really Live" which has also been deleted from the Season 2 DVD. Obviously Sherman or who ever owns the copyright to his work didn't allow permission for the lyrics top be used.
Personally I really like what they have done to keep the song but not use the words, although I'm glad I have the original too.

New Version:

Original Vesion:

Try Instrumental

An Intrumental version of "Try" from the 2009 Fame movie as performed by Asher book.
