This was originally written for the play Aspects Of Love
and was called "Married Man," but the theatrical producer Cameron Mackintosh felt it should be used as a solo for The Phantom in Act One. Richard Stilgoe came up with the title "Music of the Night" and most of the lyrics are his. Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote the music, and the order of the words is the work of Charles Hart.
