So this beautiful thing arrived this morning and I still can’t quite believe I found it online for ten euros because DO YOU KNOW RARE IT IS 😻

Lawful-Verse Voice Headcanons

So I mentioned I think a few Rogues can sing really well but never defined exactly what they sound like.    So I decided I’d make this little post with Rogues who can sing and what they sound like, and I will put in in terms of name, the artist/band that their voice is closest to, and two examples.  The only exception is with Jervis and Mary Dahl because their voices are two of the leads in the same band, and so I’ll be adding four examples.

The Title Song
10 Phantoms
The Title Song

Here are some of my favorite Phantom-verses for the title song from “The Phantom of the Opera”!


David Shannon, Peter Karrie, Brad Little, Steve Barton, Jonathan Roxmouth, Earl Carpenter, Dmitry Ermak, John Owen-Jones, Norm Lewis, Ramin Karimloo

Just a reminder this is not indicative of my feelings on their performance as a whole, simply their singing of this verse ;)

Day 48

My obsession with this musical is going strong.

I was able to tempt my little sister to the dark side. I think she may be a little in love with Ramin. She played the same 10 seconds of him screaming SING at Sierra probably a good 50 times and refused to watch more than 10 minutes of the 2004 movie before drowning it out with her guitar.

Meanwhile, I just listened to Learn to be Lonely again (from the movie’s end credits). As if the entire story wasn’t bad enough for Erik, they actually made a song about how he would be forever alone…

My quest to stave off tears for Phantom until I see it live has been a long and arduous one. I am unsure how much longer I can hold out. Wish me luck, my friends.
