I get such incredible chills every time I hear this song.

Second my favorite movie phantom of the opera
Report as inappropriate
I must say… the first impression I got of this guy was like… crazy Scottish Irish British redneck phantom… I didn't know what to think. I can't really say that I enjoy this a whole lot… I listen to it because it's the phantom of the opera… Micheal Crawford and Sarah Brightman do this best.

Not my favourite version. I like Sarah Brightman/Mi c h a e l Crawford the best, but the 2004 movie version is pretty good!

Gah this is probably my least favorite version.

I can almost hit that highest note....

Guys, this was technically the original version of this song. This is the promo version with Sarah Brightman and Steve Harley, who was popular as a rocker in a band called Cockney Rebel. Harley was seriously considered for the role of the Phantom before Crawford auditioned. I get that it's really 80s, but Harley brings a nice edge to the song, similar to Gerard Butler's singing style... Thank you for letting me rant and Fangirl all over you.

Okay honestly, this guy can't sing for crap. This lyric remix sucks. Just... NO. Ramin and Sierra are SO MUCH BETTER. I'm honestly laughing at how bad this is.

Hmm. Can't say I really like the guy singing. Nor can I say I like the lyrics' remix. But Sarah makes up for it. If you know the words to the real version, try singing along with it. It's pretty fun!

Not this version. Ew.... they changed the first verse a little bit.

I would cry if this was Ramin. Is it Ramin?

Sierra Boggess and Ramin Karimloo are my favorite actors to perform as Cristine and the Phantom. I love their voices.

I didn't like this version at all.... There must have been a rewrite cuz the lyrics are different from the present lyrics

Interesting to hear an early version of this! Steve Harley, who sings The Phantom's part here, was replaced by Michael Crawford before the staging of the show was completed.

I don't like his voice at all, especially in the last part, but the different lyrics aren't THAT bad. Overall, I prefer other versions.

Like what the crap was this? You cant change the Phantom of the Opera, like you just cant. Its not right. And I really dislike the people who thought it would be a good idea to make it sound like this.

Just for those who are confused on the lyrics: these are the original lyrics that were changed. The original music video is online.

The lyrics that are with this is for a different version.

I always wondered why Michael Crawford was not the Phantom in the video. Thank you for the explanation. And THANK GOD they replaced this hack with Michael before the show ever opened. I'm sorry, but this part is vocally way too much for him.
