Flash Friday 55......

"That voice that calls to me...and speaks my name."

"Say the word, and I'll follow you.."

"You alone can make my song take flight!"

"No dreams within her heart...But dreams of love."

"Masquerade! Hide your face, so the world will never find you."

...Great lyrics Mr. Webber,
But a musical about a Phantom?


Serena said...

I like that a lot, G. People love a good mystery, and Phantoms make for great mysteries. Setting it to music had to be a big gamble, and luckily it panned out for Mr. Webber. Now he can count his $$ as he listens to The Music of the Night.

Terrific 55!

Galen (((Hugs)))

I think the last one " masquerade! hide your face so the world will never find you" suits so well with a phantom!

Little Wing said...

dreams of dreams within her heart....but dreams of love....

great lyrics.....
(dabbing at eyes....)

Anonymous said...

Awesome dude..I thought it would be one about

barman said...

I do not know about going to see an opera to begin with ... now we have a phantom too? Well maybe that will make it more interesting...
Galen does the classics. Nice.

Evalinn said...

Snow White said...

Another awesome 55, G-Man! I don't know how you do it, week after week, but I definitely bow down to you! xoxox

Flash said...

You know, I always enjoyed that part of Phantom.....

and Just recently, I saw a musical about zombies!...and it was good! So I guess you can set anything to music

Great 55. and you know I played too!

jillie said...

I loved that movie. STILL want to see the play and the soundtrack is unbelievable...

Happy Friday to you!!


javajazz said...

sorry if i wrecked your continuity
by pulling a bunch of comments...
i think the flow is back now anyway,
as it were.

snowelf said...

I love Phantom.

AND GALEN: Ironically the boy I posted about this week was the one who took me to see it.
That night was the first night I ever took anyone's breath away just by opening the front door.
So thank you for posting this, because it brought back another beautiful memory for me.


Melodie Norman Haas said...

That is my absolute favorite musical!!! I will be in that show one day I don't care if I am a prop! Whoo hoo :) Great Fiction 55, I participated today even though I didn't get to post anything else this week.

Melissa Russell said...

Loved your flash G!!

S said...

What can be said about those freaky artist types?
You never know what will inspire them next.

I know. Im late again....sorry.

Breazy said...

Nice 55! I can't remember if I have heard this song before but the lyrics sound so familiar to me..hmm.

Have a great weekend G!


Charles said...

I didn't. But I can if you request it. Do you want me to?

Charles said...

The man can use any subject matter he wants to make a musical, it doesn't mean we will go see it. In fact, I've yet to have go see any of his works, they seem to get rammed down our collective throats anyway. What can you do? You can't stop him, but you don't have to support it.

Crabby said...

Phantom was a great musical. I'm gonna put on the cd.

See what you started?

Mona said...

I like the sound of music though & also Moulin Rouge...& the taming of the shrew too...

Rambling Prose said...

Dare I say I LOVED it! Great 55 g-man, but why should I have expected otherwise form such a witty man!


lime said...

ya know, i have to say i only went to see this particualr musical because my oldest girl loves it and i took her with her best friend to NYC to see it on broadway for her birthday. and i have to was AMAZING. truly amazing. i hated the movie, but i loved the broadway production.

and to respond to a couple folks yesterday...

barman, i am glad i am not associated with something awful in your mind :)

thanks ann for the kind words on my HNT

and snowelf....nod of awesomeness...i LOVE it.

Sophia said...

Phantoms -- ooh scary!

Mine is up!

Head Cookie said...

Oh hey there G-man did know you had such feelings for me. Nice 55. Mine is up so all stop by and check it out please

Charles said...

OK, did it anyway since I was being accus... since it was mentioned. I get 55.

javajazz said...

sorry, bad.
i pulled a couple of comments
last night during a menopausal
Cancerian freakout, which
makes Galen's comments
seem as if he is having an
out of body experience...
Galen jokingly called
me Charles because he thought
i was counting his words but really
i was calling him a nickname "57"
referring to his age...
because it was so random and
non understandable, he thought
i was calling his 55 a 57...
i probably wouldnt do that
at least not out loud, because
of how much of a fuss i made
about it when you did it...
soooooooo, i earned the
teasing in one way or another,
and now, we can all just move on
from there....if, however, you suffer
from any OCD tendencies, and who
doesnt, perhaps you can still enjoy
counting the words...
i've already apologized to Galen
for wrecking his continuity, and
he in fact, pointed out to me
that no one really pays attention
to much of this shit anyway,
to which i must reply,
then why the fuck do people write
and communicate in such a fashion
when no one is really listening?
anyway, that should clear up
the misunderstanding...
i'm sure Galen will deal with me
when he returns from Borders...
i can hardly wait...

Manny said...

Happy Friday!


G-Man said...

Mona Dear,
I'm so glad a crisis was averted on your home-front..great news xoxox

Heres my hankie Jadey
(blows a huge Loogy in it)
....Er Keep it!!

I already did a pussy post!
...Glad your back son!!

I saw this at the Wharton Center...

Have a great 55 sweetie!!

Thanks, for crossing the Ocean for me!!

Snow....You Rocked...

OK Everybody...
Including LISA!!!!


Charles said...

'Salright. I've had my name used in such a fashion previously, in much worse ways. I wouldn't think that I suffer OCD, but I might be a bit obsessive. As I said before, I hadn't seen the rules, and was curious about why they were called 55s. Galen's wasn't the first I had run across that I didn't count 55 on, that's why I was a bit confused. In fact his wasn't even the furthest off. I've yet to even attempt one, and I'm not sure I want to try. There's a lot of story to fit into very little space. I bow to those who attempt it, even when they are off.

Jo said...

Well... comments supressed are always intriguing... Once we know why, we do understand that we are all normal...
About reading... did ever one of you took the time to read the novel from Gaston Leroux, Phantom of the Opera
Leroux was one of my favorite author when I was about 12 years old... He is a master of the thrillers, and Phantom isn't, for me, the best of his books...
And, as always, the novel is so much better than all that was done with it after... Ah! That may be only me... a perpetual nostalgic...
I wish some will take the time to discover the writer and the rest of his work... ;-)

morgetron said...

One time I got poison ivy on my face, over one eye and down the side of my cheek. Hubbetron called me "Phantom of the Opera" until it cleared up.

morgetron said...

Why are there so many deleted comments on this post? What up? What UP?!


PS: My 55's up, ripe for the poppin'.
