By the way, in case you missed this and your hearts weren’t broken enough already, when Christine sings the reprise of All I Ask Of You (the same part Erik sang when he proposed), he looks at the ring in his hand that she just returned to him.
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.
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.
Ramin Karimloo’s final Bring Him Home from Les Miserables on broadway (8/30/15)
by the way, I apologize for the slight rustling here and there (the guy next to me kept moving), but luckily it didn’t really disrupt the singing and you also may need to turn up the volume a bit as its a little quiet
