I was originally thinking of the song Think of Me from Phantom of the Opera when I was going to write this post because the guy I started dating was on a cruise. Think of me would have been perfect for an broadway engagement song because it not only talks about thinking of the person and not being able to get them out of your head, but it is also a gorgeous love song. The problem is that it is more about meeting someone new and not getting engaged, that’s why All I Ask of You from Phantom of the Opera is a better showtune about getting or being engaged.
All I Ask of You from The Phantom of the Opera is a classic showtune about being proposed to, getting engaged or asking someone to marry you. When you’re proposing to someone, you’re declaring your love for them. You’re telling them you’ll be with them forever and that you’d do anything for them. You’re letting them know you want to be with them for the rest of your life and in return, you just ask for them to love you, be with you and return the same feelings. That’s why All I Ask of You from The Phantom of the Opera is the perfect broadway song about getting engaged.
Christine meets the man she loves. They are singing to each other about being in love and the song is basically their engagement. They are declaring their love for each other and even though it will lead to an issue with the Phantom, they won’t let his anger or threats stop them. The entire song is about getting engaged which is why it made it onto our theme this week for broadway showtunes about getting engaged or getting proposed to. This song is one of my favorite to listen to when I’m cleaning, working or even just driving. It is one of the more classic songs from Phantom and one of the ones people love most when they are watching the show. Even though you don’t instantly think of it when you think of the show, All I Ask of You from The Phantom of the Opera is one that you will fall in love with when watching the show and is one that is perfect for this week’s theme of showtunes about getting engaged.
