Elmo Vs. Andrea Bocelli

This duet between Elmo and opera vocalist, Andrea Bocelli, is Audrey's current favorite video on YouTube. It's a parody of a song called "Time To Say Goodbye." I have no idea where it originates from, but it certainly isn't Phantom Of The Opera.

I've always gotten a kick out of seeing real actors (or, in this case, a musician), interacting with one of Jim Henson's Muppets. Something about seeing professionals working opposite, what is essentially, a person's hand.

I'm so sorry to disappoint you, but that song is NOT from "Phantom of the Opera". I know that soundtrack very, very well. Next time, get your facts straight! :)

Etta, whatever are you talking about?

Okay, okay, I fixed it. But where does that song come from? I could have sworn all these years it was Phantom. I remember Kelly Comstock playing it all the time. Whatever it is, it's somewhere in her music collection. Butch

My wife, being the Phantom Phanatic that she is, asked the music teacher at her school about the song. After a little research, they found out that it was written by Bocelli himself, although he did record it with Sara Brightman, who played Christine in the original production of Phantom of the Opera, so there's a connection for ya!

And Sarah Brightman appeared in Sleepers with...you guessed it...Kevin Bacon!
