The Top Ten

1 The Beauty Underneath - Love Never Dies

Had to crown "The Beauty Underneath" The lyrics, the vocals, the music... - Britgirl

Yes! Nobody ever talks about Love Never Dies! Erik finally finds somebody who's interested in what he is, and calls Gustave beautiful at one point, and it's one of my absolute favorite songs from Love Never Dies.

HAVE YOU EVER YEARNED TO GO PAST THE WORLD YOU THINK YOU KNOW BEEN ENTHRALLED TO THE CALL OF THE BEAUTY UNDERNEATH THIS SONG IS SO AMAZING AND THE ELECTRIC GUITAR AT THE BEGINNING OMIGOSH

2 The Phantom of the Opera - The Phantom of the Opera

The duet between The Phantom and Christine... You can't tell me this doesn't snatch your heart... - Britgirl

The Contenders

11 Beneath a Moonless Sky - Love Never Dies
12 Final Lair - The Phantom of the Opera

The final scene in Phantom. The most emotional lines: Christine- "The tears I might have shed for your dark fate, grow cold and turn to tears of hate! " Raoul- "Christine, forgive me, please forgive me! I did it all for you and all for nothing! " Christine- "You deceived me! I gave my mind blindly! " Christine- "Pitiful creature of darkness, what kind of life have you known? God give me courage to show you, you are not alone! " Phantom- "Christine, I love you..." Phantom- "You alone can make my song take flight! It's over now the music of the night! " - lesmispoto

13 I Dreamed a Dream - Les Miserables
14 Cabaret - Cabaret
15 Out There - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
16 Epilogue (Finale) - Les Miserables

The end of the show. The part that always gets me is the Do You Hear The People Sing reprise. - lesmispoto

17 Down Once More - Phantom of the Opera
18 Those You've Known - Spring Awakening
19 Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again - Phantom of the Opera

Christine's voice is packed so full of emotion, how does one NOT get shivers when she sings "Why can't the past just die? " and then when the Phantom begins to sing to her afterward just gives me even more chills. It's an amazing song, and I can't believe it's not higher on this list!

20 Close Every Door - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
