Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals

The Contenders: Page 13

241 El Tango de Roxanne - Moulin Rouge
242 Feed the Birds - Mary Poppins Feed the Birds - Mary Poppins
243 Colored Spade - Hair Colored Spade - Hair
244 Black Boys/White Boys - Hair
245 Light In the Dark - Next to Normal Light In the Dark - Next to Normal
246 Bring On Tomorrow - Fame Bring On Tomorrow - Fame

This song is amazing. The emotion in it is the perfect resolution to the musical. All of the music from Fame is good, but this is my favorite.

247 Pity the Child - Chess Pity the Child - Chess

This song is very beautiful and it tells a just as beautiful, but quite sad story of a boys childhood and how he grows from nothing to reaching Great success.

248 The Point of No Return - Phantom of the Opera The Point of No Return - Phantom of the Opera
249 Welcome to the 60's - Hairspray Welcome to the 60's - Hairspray

Maybe not the best, but probably the one I most can't stop listen at. Just so much love. A little slow-starting but I appreciate that. The unbelievably catchy ending, finally, is a volcano: "Your mama's hip, (hip) your mamas in (in mama)...". And the beat just flows naturally and not as forced as in "You can't stop the beat". This one is better!

250 Everyone's a Little Bit Racist - Avenue Q Everyone's a Little Bit Racist - Avenue Q

A song about the natural urge of humans to single someone out.

251 What Do You Do With a B.A.In English/it Sucks to Be Me - Avenue Q What Do You Do With a B.A.In English/it Sucks to Be Me - Avenue Q
252 Turn It Off - The Book of Mormon Turn It Off - The Book of Mormon

How can you not love this song? The theme and the emotion are so strong!

256 It's Hard to Speak My Heart - Parade It's Hard to Speak My Heart - Parade

So full of emotion. Gets me every time. And to think it's a true story!
