Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 4

This past month or so I went to see the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical The Phantom of the Opera. Twice. Now, it was work related, so I didn't pay to see it both times, but I will admit to enjoying the hell out of it. Well, at least the first act, which includes the cheesy theme song that I can't help but love. Luckily, this new touring version keeps the ultra 80's sound of the song, complete with synthesizers and electric guitars. It sounds like something Giorgio Moroder could have written, and that's a good thing in my book. Here's the original cast recording.

Tonight at 9:25PM, PT TCM will be airing the 1925 silent version starring Lon Chaney, and while it doesn't have power ballad guitar chords and synthesizers, it's still pretty good.

The Phantom limbos!

 If you don't have Turner Classic movies, you can basically watch it anywhere, as it's available on all the streaming services, including YouTube.
