I really did. I have just discovered the official video to I Would Do Anything for Love, which looks like it is the most expensive Phantom of the Opera fanvid ever made*. It features a falling chandelier, oodles of candles, and a miserable, deformed, and hooded bloke who skulks around in the shadows waiting for a woman who appears inexplicably interested in him.**
I would have unironically adored it in 1993, had I known that it existed.
*With make-up rather like Buffy's vampires.
**Christine Daaé at least had the excuse of free singing lessons offering a rather better career, not to mention the mind games.
