I know Me First and The Gimme Gimmes did a version of the Phantom Of The Opera song, but what over groups have done songs from musicals? And if you were to see a rockified song from a musical, what would you like to see?

I am only asking this since the lead singer and I in my band are big theater geeks, he's a classically trained singer(think choirs and broadway... he has a range and voice A LOT like Chris Cornell for rock, and he is a clean voiced baritone for theater/choirs), and I am a fourteen show veteran of the backstage community... So we'd kind off like to take stuff like "Red and Black" from Les Miserables and turn it into soundgarden/Muse type rock.

What would you like to see?

I'm pretty sure Iron Maiden - Phantom of the opera is in no way related to the Phantom of the Opera song you mean

I'd love to help, but every play I've seen has been a show using another artists songs (We Will Rock You, Mama Mia) which doesn't help you a whole lot, but I'm sure Phantom of the Opera can go into a Muse-ish song.. who cares if its been done before.

I have a whole friggin' list of showtunes I would love to cover one day.

One of them is "June Is Bustin' Out All Over" from Carousel. Now THAT would be deck.

Frusciante for President in '08
"Phantom of the Opera"- Nightwish. They did amazing, as well.

That's the only one that comes to mind, though. =/

Or you could do "I Whistle A Happy Tune" from The King And I. That would sound amazing as a garage-y song.
