Till I Hear You Sing

Kinda sudden emotional post at midnight. Maybe now this blog changes so completely lots of people don’t know about me, but I’m actually a huge musical geek and love Ramin Karimloo so much.

I didn’t know him for a long time though, like only one and a half of year. It all started some time when I accidentally heard Phantom of the Opera for the first time in my life. After that, I guess I’m just completely INTO this. I’m obsessed with his voice, with this incredible performer just like lots of other people do. But I was so far away from him back then. I couldn’t make it to see him live, so I just basically went through every video of him on YouTube and bootlegs as well. Yes, I can confidently say that there’s no video on the internet of him that I haven’t see. There’s no recorded performance of his, no matter officially or unofficially, I haven’t had a look at.

And now, a year later, I finally got to met him, first in Baltimore his gig, which was the best night of my life, and then several times at Anastasia Broadway. Not a huge fan of this show, but for him I saw it four times. At stage door, I got to meet him and express fully my admiration for him and complimentary for his talent and voice.

It was a extraordinary experience. Truly. And I feel truly happy and satisfied about it. It’s like a journey that finally completed, just like when Anastasia finally met Empress and they recognize each other. I thought my greatest wish come true I wouldn’t be that crazily obsessed again. But it’s not.

I don’t know why tonight I just turn on Till I Hear You Sing again. Last time I listened to it I still haven’t saw him in person. I always said to myself back in those midnights, till I hear you sing, Ramin, till I hear you sing, Ramin… and now I finally hear him sing, I don’t know where this sentimental feeling when I hear him sing comes from. I feel like a knife is in my heart, my heart is tear apart… I just feel so empty and depressed and really don’t know why.

Always thought feeling, those kind of connection, is the greatest gift we can received from a performance… but, in fact, it’s also the most useless and insecure thing in the world. How untouchable it is…

I don’t know what I’m writing about… just keep looping till I hear you sing… I love him… I miss him… i miss his performance, his voice, his phantom… got to see him again during the summer vacation…

To those who keep asking why Ramin is reluctant to perform TIHYS, he explains it in this video from last summer (which is actually where he first said he wouldn’t do it). 

NOTE: The video should start right at his explanation, but if not, just jump to 21m 26s.

Anyone else cry the first time they saw this for the first time?

Showtune of the Day: “Till I Hear You Sing” from Love Never Dies.

The day starts, the day ends
Time crawls by
Night steals in, pacing the floor
The moments creep,
Yet I can’t bear to sleep
Till I hear you sing

And weeks pass, and months pass
Seasons fly
Still you don’t walk through the door
And in a haze
I count the silent days
Till I hear you sing once more.

And sometimes at night time
I dream that you are there
But wake holding nothing but the empty air

And years come, and years go
Time runs dry
Still I ache down to the core
My broken soul
Can’t be alive and whole
Till I hear you sing once more

And music, your music
It teases at my ear
I turn and it fades away and you’re not here

Let hopes pass, let dreams pass
Let them die
Without you, what are they for?
I’ll always feel
No more than halfway real
Till I hear you sing once more
