Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21I Am Changing - DreamgirlsV1 Comment
22Empty Chairs at Empty Tables - Les Miserables

Agreed this song should be in the top ten without any question. I still get chills every time I listen to the song. The dynamics are incredible! 10/10

So beautiful and sad. Maybe I shouldn't say this since I don't know a lot about les mis, but I disagree with all the les mis fans calling Marius a fop since he sings this incredibly moving song about his friends who died fighting for freedom.

23Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story - Hamilton

Sung by Alexander's wife, Eliza, after her husband's tragic death, at the end of the show. She tells the audience that instead of wasting her remaining time on tears, she will continue her husband's work to make the world a better place. By her death at the age of 97 (wow), she had spoken out against slavery, funded the Washington Monument, and founded the 1st private orphanage in NYC. I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it's all true. She was an incredible woman, and this song is so, SO moving. Lin Manuel Miranda is a genius.

This song is full of emotion! This isn't the only great song from the musical! I suggest listening the entire musical!

I love this song so much as well as the whole musical even though it always brings me to tears!

We need to get this show's songs further up on the list.

24A Little Fall of Rain - Les Miserables

I love this song! Eponine and Marius sing a lovely duet, and it is obviously extremely heartfelt. This should be much higher on the list than it is!

I can't stop crying when heard this song - this love story

Great song with so much emotions

25For Good - Wicked

I was so blessed to go to this show, and this was one of the only songs that got to me! It was so beautifully performed and has such a great and so sweet message. This is one that you just have to listen to to understand, and I would recommend it to anybody.

This is such an amazing song and it really can make you cry! It's so beautiful and Wicked is such an amazing musical. And to be honest, I love this song more than Defying Gravity, I think it's just because it really just gets to your emotions and it's so beautiful overall!

This song is truly stunning! The thought of never seeing your best friend again is chilling, the lyrics represent the understanding of friendship, listen to it if you haven't.

What a heart felt song of life. It's our shared experiences, and, those that make a difference. This song transcends life's purpose. Touch the life of another.

26What Is This Feeling - Wicked

Love this song! I think if it was in the most fun Broadway songs, it would be #2. (Behind Popular, of coarse. )

This is so catchy! How is it not higher?

It's so fun! Great duet. I've sang it with my older sister lol

Who hasn't felt like this at least once in their lives?

30You Can't Stop the Beat - Hairspray

This song is so energetic and catchy! I can't believe it's not higher ranked!

It's hard to find a catchier song. One of the only songs I enjoy being stuck in my head!

31All That Jazz - Chicago

Very sexy. I've never seen the musical but I own the score. Yes, very sexy indeed. - Britgirl

A perfect opening for one of the greatest Broadway shows ever.

Love this musical! Amazing song!

Very awesome and jazzy theme!

33Sun and Moon - Miss Saigon
34Any Dream Will Do - Joseph

Simple but very uplifting! What a wonderful lyrics and melody!

35The Wizard and I - WickedV1 Comment
36Close Every Door - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

ALW ripped of his own song 'cause the tune of this is similar to Past the Point of No Return from Phantom of the Opera. Still an awesome song though.

37The Time Warp - The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Love rocky horror!
I know it all off by heart! Its amazing!
now I can't get it out of my head!

38Alexander Hamilton - Hamilton

The song the entire cast sings at the beginning of the story about the main character after the main character is already dead. Is anyone else thinking The Ballad of Sweeney Todd?

Hamilton would've not been the King of Musicals without a song like Alexander Hamilton as well as the record breaking tony awards!

This song is an amazing way to start of an AMAZING musical! I love it so much!

I have seen Hamilton 2 times and met Lin-Manuel Miranda

39Summer Nights - Grease

I love this song! I dream about it in my sleep! It's the best song in Grease, in my opinion, as well as an awesome song. I am really happy with it. Also, I think this should be of a much higher ranking =P. Anyway, this was just a really nice song, especially because it included the Thunder birds and the Pink Ladies. It just shows what high school kids can be like, you know?

It's such an amazing song, so real and unique. I know it's kinda weird because my mum used to listen this song when she was a kid, but I can't do nothing but love that song! And what an amazing movie of course!

It's the best ever. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John sing the most beautiful duet for such a great musical.

It's my favourite, I sing it with my brother all the time.
