121Feed Me - Little Shop of Horrors

I love this song!

122Master of the House - Les MiserablesV1 Comment
123Secret of Survival - The Wind in the Willows

A very chilling villain song. "It's our secret of survival in this very nasty world. Now you see us, now you don't. Now you hear us, now you won't. "

The message in this song is actually true. Everyone's out for themselves and no one else.

124You Can't Win - The Wiz
125Everyone has AIDS - Team America

Everyone has AIDS! Only the creators of South Park could ever get away with something like that.

This song is so catchy! The way he speaks the dialogue is so soulful it's funny.

126Consider Yourself - Oliver
127Edelweiss - The Sound of Music

I once enters a county talent show with this song, I got fourth place
4 out of about 500.

128I'd Give My Life for You - Miss Saigon

This is such a beautiful song! There aren't many songs like this, about a mother willing to give her life in order for her son to have a bright future, and it just makes the story even more tragic and memorable. It's got a very catchy melody as well.

137.137.137!? Are you kidding me?!?!?!? This is the most beautiful, moving, powerful and basically just amazing song ever. I love to listen to it and do so every day. Next time I check on this list this song better be in the top ten.

129You Won't Succeed on Broadway - Spamalot
130My Eyes - Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog

One of the best villain songs EVER! This, "Brand New Day" and "Slipping" are the best villain songs ever! It has both Dr Horrible and Penny singing together but about opposite feelings! She's good and he's evil (but awesome)

Why isn't this higher?!?! This is one of my favorite songs ever! I could listen to it on repeat for months at a time.. And I'm pretty sure I have!

131Bring Him Home - Les Miserables

A beautiful song about being willing to die in the place of a friend. I don't know what character sings this song, but I would give almost anything to have a friend who would do that for me.

This is no doubt the most difficult solo song from Les Mis... Takes so much control and understanding of the character. Don't know why it's so low

The best musical song in my opinion. Les mis is also my favorite musical

I cry whenever I hear this song!

135The Impossible Dream - Man of la Mancha

One of the great gems of musical theater, this gorgeous litany of a knight's goal's reminds us to strive for the best and highest, even when we may not reach them, and that the world will be better because we have done so.

136Jet Song - West Side Story

When you're a jet you're a jet all the way from you're first cigarette to your last dying day. So catchy, I just love it!
