And they use No Comeback in the video? If I was going there to watch the show for the first I'd be very dissapointed when I realized that "the cool music on the website" wasn't there!

When was it cut anyway? Did it make all the way to the 90s?


Wasn't it 92 that the show had it's big revamp? Losing some of the best songs? C.B., Belle the Sleeping Car, No Comeback, Only He, There's Me and He Whistled At Me.

You hear "No Comeback" through the show, the melody is used to represent Electra or the components in the race music, it's used by Electra and Pearl in "Laughing Stock", but you never hear the actual song!

I need to check references when it was cut (I've got programmes with the song lists from almost every year of London) but I think it was about 1988/89, something like that... definitely before the 1992 revamp.

I hope the rumours are true and this does actually come to Australia too. I've been wanting to see Starlight for over ten years now :D

I'm begining to not care if it tours Australia now actually. The song list makes me despair. It's like a highlights recording missing all of the best songs.

Unfortunately, that's what Lloyd Webber has decided the show should be! Star-lite - the low calorie version.

LOL! It's sad, but true... Not that the show isn't entertaining, and I have no doubt that the NZ cast will give it 120%, but the raw material's just somewhat lacking compared to what it can - what it SHOULD - be.

You are bloody BRILLIANT! That is just so CLEVER... gawd, if only that could be submitted to RUG somehow, but anonymously, and spread around... can I nick it please for my Facebook?

Just so clever, and bloody funny.
