Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals

The Contenders: Page 2

21 La Vie Boheme - Rent

Rent is my favorite! I learn this song in two days and I sing it every where I go. My best friends even know the lyrics because I sing it so much!

I convinced my friends to sing this song at the lunch table with me. That was fun. This song rocks.

A fun jam, love to sing it with friends.

Great sing along

22 Empty 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.

24 A 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

When I grow up, it is my plan to play Eponine! This song is so sad but sweet

25 For 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.

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.

34 Non-Stop - Hamilton

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?

The best

This song is amazing. The vocal overlap is exceptional. I can't get enough of it! ❤️❤️

35 Can You Feel The Love Tonight - Lion King

One of the most iconic songs in Disney musical history! A true piece of art right here!

Elton made this fab.

36 Any Dream Will Do - Joseph

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

37 Close 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.

38 The Wizard and I - Wicked V 2 Comments
39 Memory - Cats

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!

40 Summer 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.

Love this did a show with NYT
