Only a few comments

Sandor Venyige is really a pro musical singer. You can hear him on hungarian version of Jeckyl & Hyde or Miss saigon (I saw him there and after the show I meet him). He is a big Tanz fan, but he has no chance to sing in hungarian version because of the personal problem with PS management, which owns the rights for show in Hungary. His demo of Unsteilbare gier is far better than the official production demo.

PS: I like Lesft in he dark too. maybe because of the voice - Jims voice is not perfect on this song and thism makes the song for me closer. Meats interpretation is flat and Streisands is very strange for me...
