Look at them squirm like worms in mud,
Blaming a ghost who's flesh and blood.
Crossing the line, tossing the dice,
Making decisions and paying the price.


I tend to listen more to music than to lyrics. Consonantly dissonant chords capture my attention. All those 7-chords... <3


If I were really a ghost, my dear,
I'd find a better Hell than here!

Thus being a difference. Ken Hill didn't write any of his own music, merely lyrics. The music is all operas.
I don't think I've heard much of Ken Hill...
But Alonso.... heart
And Y/K... *huggles Y/K!Erik*

Ah, so that's why there are no weird chords.

I've heard the edited version of While Floating High Above. I like it, but Erik's voice seems to be a little lacking.

As previously determined in the old official board, Y/K Erik is mine! *runs off with him so he cant get shot by the police and or his father*

Erik's voice isn't really lackin. You just need listen to it. It's written differently. It's not written like others.

Alonso= super win
Ken Hill = super win
Yeston/Kopit=super win
Andrew Lloyd Webber=super win
David Staller=win

Luv David Staller, but it lost serious brownie points with me with the Erik/Meg ending.

Man I cried so hard when I saw Yeston/Kopit. Not even the end either. The My mother bore me part. He was crying. I was crying. Mum was jumpy and expecting more explosions, and dad was in shock because unlike me and mum, he had not been spoiled to 2nd row seats, till then.

I want to see Y/K live.

I just stop before the end of Stallah, at the end of Love Me for Me. No super-fast recovery scene.

Alonso = BEST MUSIC EVAR
Webber = showiest and Howie-est <3
Y/K = making-me-raise-my-eyebrows-in-amusement-est
Stallah = most hilarious
Ken Hill = most unknown to me

Christine, magical lands, Christine, losing his deformity, Christine, weird things in the opera house, and Christine.

Morning, Thread! :3

I had a dream lasst night (yeah, PotO-related) that I was having fits finding a costume. For Halloween or a masquerade, I can't remember. Anyway, in lieu of a good costume, I was going to go as Erik. Only, I was wearing a lime green suit, a mask made for a child, and fuzzy gloves.

So, here's a question: Would Erik be caught in public with the outfit I just described?
