Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals
The Contenders: Page 2
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.V 1 Comment
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.V 2 Comments
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
When I grow up, it is my plan to play Eponine! This song is so sad but sweetV 1 Comment
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.
I was blessed to be able to sing this as a duet with my best friend I've known since 1st grade at my graduation. This song will always have a special place in my heart.V 5 Comments
Love this song! I think if it was in the most fun Broadway songs, it would be #2. (Behind Popular, of coarse. )

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

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.

I love Hamilton and Non-Stop is by far the best song in the show after My Shot. How is My Shot not on this list?V 1 Comment
One of the most iconic songs in Disney musical history! A true piece of art right here!
Elton made this fab.
Simple but very uplifting! What a wonderful lyrics and melody!
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.
Love rocky horror!
I know it all off by heart! Its amazing!
now I can't get it out of my head!
Fantastic song, even better musicalV 1 Comment
I think this is one of the most amazing musical songs ever and deserves a higher place, I find it a very emotional and meaningful song
I heard Jackie Evancho sing this when she was age 9... I sure hope she sings it again now that she is older, because she'll knock it out of the park for sure.
Astonishing, this song is Should be in the top ten, it is too incredible to be this low on ratings!
Should be a lot higher than #40 all time, closer to the top 15 in my opinion!V 10 Comments
