Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals
The Contenders: Page 10XW
This is a great opening song to a fantastic musical, I absolutely love it, it perfectly embodies the entire show and main character. AMAZING
I loved this song before I knew it was from a musical.
This song is so fun to perform and watch. The actors have to be in perfect sync and then do the very tricky double cartwheel at the end. Favorite song from Cats, which is my favorite musical.
Very fast paced, and interesting. Bernadette Peters was amazing.
This song is over twelve minutes long, but sets up the story beautifully. I love the continuous theme that runs through the whole thing, and I think that the lyrics are very clever- classic Stephen Sondheim! This should have already been on the list, or at least something else from this musical. It is a beautiful work of art, and this song is the most defining for the whole thing.
The lights are off. Complete Darkness. Suddenly, dim light is shining on the stage. All you see are gadgets and machinery. The four heros, Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin man and Lion step into this place. A huge face appears in the middle of the stage. This is The Wizard of Oz: The Musical. The song," Bring Me The Broomstick " is just so powerful. It's a command. This should be number 1!V1 Comment
Maybe not one of the top three, but certainly a song that needs recognition. Partly to do with the unmasking of the Phantom and how you hear his reaction go from angry to intimidating to pleading and desperate. Perhaps you need to see the staging as the Phantom crawls across the stage clutching his face, but it's an excellent song. - lesmispoto
This song only sounds good when the singer is good which why it sounds fabulous when people such as John Owen Jones and Michael Ball sing it - not to mention the incredible Anthony Warlow. The way he holds the note for so so sooo long at the end on the original album is incredible and Anthony Warlow really does the role justice. - lesmispoto
This is actually my favourite song from the musical! It's fun and upbeat and Amanda Seyfried sings it so beautifully!
