Similarity of Phantom of the Opera with You Are My Hiding Place?
Disregarding the instrumentals and dramatics, do you find their opening stanzas similar?
You are my hiding place
Phantom of the opera
Comparing info from imdb , wikipedia and various sources
shows that the hymn "You are my hiding place" was published about ~15 years before Andrew Lloyd Webber published the "Phantom of the Opera".

They are very similar sounding in the opening stanza but otherwise not at all. It's a strange coincedence.
You are my hiding place is a song for God and Phantom is a dark, mysterious and powerful song :) Weird how those 2 things can sound alike.
