Long forgotten song of the day… “Phantom of the Paradise – Phantom’s Theme” by Paul Williams

This is my favorite of the many fantastic songs written for an absolute shitburger of a movie (Brian de Palmas’ Phantom of Paridise) by the oft forgotten Paul Williams.

The lyrics are just absolutely fantastic & a wonderfully restrained arraingement for a very sad and meditive song.

Other than a guest appearance on the Dexter’s Lab cartoon I haven’t heard anything from him, which is quite sad since he has some great chops.

Give it a listen it’s good.
