Good Morning Everyone! I hope you’re all okay, I’ve been up for about an hour now, it’s about to be 8:30am, by the time I finish this post it might be a bit past that time, who knows…..anyway I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the movie/musical Phantom Of The Opera, yes I know there’s a Broadway show to it as well, but I have only ever known and watched the movie so the Broadway show won’t be mentioned much here!
If some of you know of this musical then you’ll know what I’m talking, if not that’s okay, but if you would like me to explain a bit, well then I’ll do my best…..Phantom of The Opera originally it’s based off a Broadway play, but it later turned into a movie/musical…..it’s quite an interesting one and I don’t know how well I’ll be able to describe it, but to put it into short words, You have this girl whose name is Christine who is obsessed with this voice I guess, I’m not going to lie to you I never quite understood the concept of this play turned musical movie, I just always liked watching the movie and hearing the songs I’d always watch it with my brother on occasions, we’d love watching it when we were younger!
We don’t watch it much these days, but I’d still consider it a favorite if not that, It was always a movie that I enjoyed watching….but anyway, back to the explanation of this movie…..Yeah so Christine, she’s obsessed with this Phantom guy, but mainly because of his voice and the Phantom guy is obsessed with Christine who is engaged to another man…..that’s pretty much the round up of the movie, I mean there’s more to it of course, but it’s the only way I can explain it really!
Now onto why I want to talk about the Phantom Of The Opera, so as we all know we are in the Spookiest of months right now, everyone’s favorite season except for mine Halloween, unless we’re talking about the Halloween event in my favorite game Animal Crossing then…..well I got mixed feelings on that one, but we’re not here to talk about Animal Crossing, not yet anyway, soon though!
We’re slowly, but surely nearing the Halloween event and I know most people are probably looking forward to getting all dressed up and going out to get candy and what not, I’m not really sure how most people will celebrate it this year, however they choose, I just hope everyone enjoys themselves and most importantly that they stay safe! I’m getting off track here aren’t I!? Right….caring on, reason to why I want to talk about this beautiful movie musical…..
We are at the peak of Halloween, it’s closely around the corner and so for this month, I’ve been slightly challenging myself to have a theme so I can write more and record more! Out of all the months that I get most inspiration, October has literally screamed at me and so I thought this could work, let’s see if we can make things interesting! I’ve been sharing recently anything that gives me Halloween vibes, it doesn’t have to be exactly Halloween, it just has to feel like it and Phantom Of The Opera gives me HUGE “yeah this can go well with the Halloween season”
I recently found out that it actually released during the Halloween season at least the novel did…..it fact it just had an anniversary this past Saturday the 9th of October, true facts! 35 years that we were given this gift and you want to know what else I learned!? Apparently it’s meant to be a Graphic Horror…..how did I not know that!? I’m not sure, but let’s just say I knew that from the beginning to save time…..35 years is a long time I mean it’s older than the Nightmare Before Christmas and that movie just turned 28 TODAY!! like right now today…..can you believe that!?
I like how meant to be focused on Phantom Of The Opera, but I keep mentioning other things…..sorry about that I just can’t help, but mention these things! Really I just wanted to talk about the soundtrack of this movie, it literally screams Halloween…..anytime I just hear the Phantom Of The Opera theme song, I always would say to myself how you could add that to a playlist with other similar songs that just give you that spooky sound or just reminds you of the season of Halloween! It’s a such a good soundtrack though Phantom Of The Opera, also the two leads to that movie did fantastic together, both have amazing voices and I kind just want to watch the movie now at this point, I’ll try and watch it soon!
If you ever listen to the Phantom Of The Opera soundtrack then you’ll also feel the familiarity that it brings to this season! There’s a lot of songs that will sound like they were made around the month of October just because they give you those horror type of sounds to them, but also it could just be that they fit well and probably should’ve been made during the month of October, but I guess that’s why playlists were invented so you add things to them that remind you of a certain holiday event, that bring back certain memories or just because you need a bunch of songs to help pick you during the day!
Regardless Phantom Of The Opera is quite the musical/movie and recently just found out about Novel and I can’t believe it’s 35 years old, like it’s still young, but goodness 35 years!? That’s mind blowing right there, by the way I have never read the novel if it weren’t obvious, I didn’t even know there was a novel for it, I always thought it was a musical play only turned movie, but then again most of these musical plays come from books sooo I don’t know why I’m so surprised….Happy 35th Anniversary POTO!!
All The Love ❤ ❤
