    It says I have listened to this track 4 times before, but I'm sure I've not heard this version before (this one I'm listening to now is not as good)

    Classic version. In my opinion both originals of London's West End as well as Broadway. On this version, you get an absolute experience of Sarah's vocal range. Michael Crawford will always be my favorite Phantom, but Ramin Karimloo is certainly running a close second with John Owen Jones coming in at third.
