I was astounded that there wasn't an existing page for this, so I created one. There are A TON of pages we need to add this link to, so please help out. DA723 04:47, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

In response to the suggestion that this article be merged with the main Phantom article, I point out that most of the other songs from Phantom have their own pages, and this one is probably the most famous, so if any Phantom song deserves its own page its this one. Please see the following:

I would also think this deserves its own article. Well-known song from well-known musical. No need to merge here. --LV (Dark Mark) 01:03, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
In it's current state, I'm tempted to say merge (with the others). It is indeed well known enough to deserve its own article, but it doesn't seem to be saying enough to deserve it. The JPS 01:25, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

I remvoed the lyrics as copyrighted (unless someone can justify full inclusion). Otherwise we might be able to include a brief excerpt but it would have to be very limited extent. RJFJR 17:18, 27 March 2006 (UTC)


I agree that perhaps this, along with All I Ask of You is the only POTO song for which we can justify having a separate page. However, the full lyrics to the song cannot be copied here. This is a copyright violation and is not allowed under Wiki guidelines. Mademoiselle Sabina 10:41, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Would suggest merge with The Phantom of the Opera (1986 musical) Lofty 11:40, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Title[edit]

Shouldn't this article's title be changed to The Music of the Night? The libretto, the official CDs, and most other legitimate sources all include the word "The", and other Wikipedia articles prefixed with "The" certainly exist (The Beatles, for example). --71.244.165.61 23:01, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Lyrics[edit]

The lyrics have been removed, as they are not in the public domain and as far as I am aware, permission has not been sought to use them. Of course, it may be acceptable to use a few words of the lyrics under fair use? Hangles (talk) 11:35, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
