The following is a listing of songs and artists used throughout the story. Thank you for all the support you have given "Every Rose has its Thorn."
Chapter 12: "Second Hand, White Baby Grand." The song was performed by Megan Hilty from the short lived television show, Smash. I personally loved it but what do us theatre people know?
Chapter 19: "Crazy Dreams." Another sampling from Smash and although the song was originally performed by Carrie Underwood, Megan Hilty's version is the one I used for inspiration. I also featured Celine Dion's "To Love You More." Just imaging Erik playing the violin solo…. Priceless.
Chapter 37: "Past the Point of No Return." Obviously from the Phantom of the Opera. Finally, our super couple can let their passions fuse and merge together as they become one in this fic.
Chapter 39: An excerpt from "Till I Hear You Sing" from Love Never Dies. Ramin is unstoppable.
Chapter 44: The real deal from beginning to end, "Till I Hear You Sing."
Chapter 45: Another Smash song…Wow, do I need new material? LOL An excerpt from "Caught in the Storm" by Katherine McPhee.
Chapter 47: "Con Te Partiro" by Andrea Bocelli. Imagine Erik singing in Italian. Need I say more?
Chapter 51: "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" by Celine Dion.
Chapter 53: "Next Time I Fall in Love" by Peter Cetera and Amy Grant. One of my favorite love songs.
Chapter 66:"I Want You to Need Me" by Celine Dion.
Chapter 68: "The Music of the Night." The love theme from The Phantom of the Opera.
You know, after reading this listing, you'd think I don't know any other songs. LOL I'm curious to see what I used in my other stories. I guess we shall find out together next week. Until then, this story is officially marked complete!
