Really love this song from "Dracula"! I got it stuck in my head for ages the other night. Been on a bit of a "Wildhorn kick" lately.

I honestly have a big problem with giving Van Helsing's wife a name (and such a horrible one at that). I'd rather have the lyrics not mentioning her name.

The song itself is not bad...I just wished I could hear it sung by someone who still has a voice :P

Couldn't help but think of Roseanne Barr myself :D

Really love the 2007 "Dracula" album. I don't know how much they've changed it since, but this is the show that I want to see, if there was another English version.

I LOVE the orchestrations on that Graz album, especially the beginning Jonathan Harker in the castle scenes through Fresh Blood.

Yes! :D Other moments I love (really the whole thing is pretty outstanding from memory!): "A perfect life/Loving you keeps me alive", "Life after life" (which no longer has the riff from "The glory" IIRC), "If I had wings" (favourite version is this version), "There's always a tomorrow" leading into "It's over", and the last scene.

Picture these arrangements with the Broadway design. Makes you wonder...

Oh IMO, this album is one of Frank's career highlights. That said, not a huge fan of "Roseanne" though it may be the vocal :)

If only we had an English version of THIS CD like the one for "Monte Cristo". It's great the way it is, don't get me wrong, but... :D

As far as I know they haven't changed almost anything. In Korea they gave Dracula a new song for the very beginning of the song which I believe concerns his wife dying (let's remember Wildhorn's Dracula is based on the Copolla film and not the book, really).
