I don't think it's right but I will guess Phantom of the Opera.

Jeckll and Hyde - Sung by Robert Cocelli

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

Oh, I forgot to write the name of the song. Lost In the Darkness.

Other principles inclue Linda Eder and Christiane Noll

It is written by frank Wildenhorn

Jeri said...

no clue... i tell you Melissa - you are AMAZING!

as for the line - I am ALWAYS telling my kids to PLEASE HEAR ME - but it is never the SILENCE that is the problem. the opposite rather... TOO MUCH NOISE!

Jeri said...

hello - obvious whim! You lived with me (and traveled with me) you know I am the epitome of a jekel/hyde personality!

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

And the character sining the song is Dr. Jekyll.

Intrestingly enough Frank Wildenhorn is married to Linda Eder.

She sings in other productions of his including the conceptional version of Scarlet Pimpernel, and The Civil War.

What is a conceptional version of Scarlet Pimpernel? And how could you listen to it if its conceptional?
Just sign me confused.

Jake said...

We're playing as couples this year, right?

Barbara C said...

I think the rule is under 16 over 60. Where do you fit?

Jake said...

Do you have a link to that story in the spectrum, Bob?

Barbara C said...

From the book by Robert Louis Stevenson. Of course now we'd call him manic depressive and tell him to take his medicine.

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

Maybe Conceptional is the wrong word. Basically, they made a cd of the songs before it actually went on Broadway to see what people thought of them, it they liked them, ect. The actual Broadway that released later has additional songs and some of the songs changed slightly but the same concept.

Not only is Dr. Jekyll singing it, but it is to his deceased father shortly before they break into the "theme" song called Facade.

I taught Jekyll and Hyde this year and most of my students didn't know that they were the same person, eventhough they had seen the character portrayed in Van Helsing and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. One of the interesting things in the musical is that there are two love interests, one who falls in love with each of the different personas of Jekyll/Hyde, but in the novel, there is not a love interest at all.

Also, going back to the pageant motif earlier established, when I was at Miss Utah the second year, This is the Moment was the song wherein all 54 girls did the parade of gowns prior to the evening gown competition.

This show was remade with David Hasselhoff aka "The Hoff" staring in the lead role.

And if I've ever thought about falling in love with someone for their voice, this could possibly be one of those instances - especially in this song - amazing emotion behind the notes and words that just sucks the listener right in.

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

And right before "The Hoff" was in it Sabastian Bach was. Nothing like a Rock Star to add some spice to an already spicy production.

I have to admit, I never knew who Sabastian Bach was until he did Jekell and Hyde and one of my co-workers (at USF of course) had a major crush on him :)

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

How could I forget, You bought me Jekell and Hyde starring "the Hoff" on DVD. Thanks again for that :)

1 point for more puns. Oh, how I love a good pun.
Although I absolutely would NOT agree with your characterization of yourself in our glorious college days, (Had you truly been a Jekyll/Hyde personality, there's NO WAY we would still be in contact), I'll give you a point anyway.

1 point for Robert for being first on the board

1 point for Melissa for owning the movie (thanks to me!)(I'd forgotten about that, to be honest.)

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

I love the Scarlet Pimpernel as well. Only Love was one of the new songs that was not on the conceptual cd. I am so glad they added it because it is one of my favorites as well :)
