Description

I found an older video that I did! The sound is not that great, but I thought my vocals were okay! (And I know I got a bit overzealous on the "free" part, but decided to post the video anyway!) I hope you enjoy it! Ps. Have a great weekend everybody! Karen :) NOTE: I found a great description to what the award-winning play and movie, "The Phantom Of the Opera" are about: At his secret underground lair, the Phantom seduces Christine with his 'music of the night', and his soft yet empowering voice and lyrics put her in a trance-like state. Music is a pivotal object in Christine's life (her violinist father promised her an 'Angel of Music'), and thus the Phantom truly becomes her guardian almost, with his musical talents and his ability to coach and push Christine further in her musical boundaries. Through song, he admits his unspoken love "touch me, trust me" and urges her to forget the "life [she] knew before" and stay with him. Since the Phantom is represented by 'darkness', he tells her to "turn [away] from the garish light..." which may represent the superficiality of the world above with all of the worries and stress that Christine must experience to progress in her singing career (against Carlotta), and let her "soul" give in to the "dream" and "fantasies" that his mysterious world can offer. Lyrics: The Music of the Night Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation Darkness wakes and stirs imagination Silently the senses abandon their defenses Helpless to resist the notes I write... For I compose the music of the night Slowly, gently, Night unfurls it's Splendor Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender Hearing is believing, music is deceiving Hard as lightening, soft as candlelight. Dare you trust the music of the night? Close your Eyes – For your eyes will only tell the truth And the truth isn’t what you want to see In the dark it is easy to pretend That the truth is what it ought to be. Softly, deftly, Music shall caress you Hear it, feel it, secretly possess you Open up your mind, Let your fantasies unwind In this Darkness which you know you cannot fight, The Darkness of the Music of the Night! Close your eyes - Start a journey through a strange new world Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before Close your eyes - And let music set you free. Only then can you belong to me Floating, falling, Sweet Intoxication Touch me, trust me, savor each Sensation Let the dream begin, Let your darker side give in To the Power of the music that I write, The Power of the Music of the Night! ****** You alone can make my song take flight Help me make the music of the night.
