Oh, okay, one last video for Starlight Express -- at least for the time being. This is another recording of the show's hit song, "Only He" (which they've adapted to "Only You"). However this version is sung by two people neither of whom performed it in the show, although one of them was at least in it. And the other singer came to his greatest fame in a different show by the same composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The music video is from 1987, and was made in support of an album that Michael Crawford had just released, performing the songs of Lloyd Webber. Crawford had starred in Phantom of the Opera three years earlier. Joining him here is Frances Ruffelle, who I posted a song from a couple days ago in her supporting role from Starlight Express (though this wasn't one of her own numbers). By the time of this video, she'd since left the show and had created the role of Eponine in Les Miserables.
But here they are together, joined by "Only You" and their connection to Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
