Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals

The Contenders: Page 3

41 White Boys - Hair
42 Prologue - Into the Woods

This song is over twelve minutes long, but sets up the story beautifully. I love the continuous theme that runs through the whole thing, and I think that the lyrics are very clever- classic Stephen Sondheim! This should have already been on the list, or at least something else from this musical. It is a beautiful work of art, and this song is the most defining for the whole thing.

43 One Short Day - Wicked

Such a fun little song. This one brings the two girls closer together.

44 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

45 Red and Black - Les Miserables

It is a song full of love and determination. It tells you that you can fall in love even at the worst moments.

The embodiment of the spirit of the ABC Friends. Full of hope, and aspiration...

46 My Body - The Life
47 At the End of the Day - Les Miserables
48 Tomorrow - Annie

The sun will come out tomorrow...


49 Circle of Life - Lion King

This astonishing masterpiece opens one of the biggest musicals around, it showcases outstanding use of voice and dynamics, while truly embodying an African tribal theme throughout. A top ten contender for sure at the very least

The lion king is one of my favorites ever

50 Something's Coming - West Side Story
51 Show Me - My Fair Lady

This is such a great song! It's short but it's just so fun and it really shows off Julie's voice at the end!

52 Come What May - Moulin Rouge

Wouldn't we all love to have a secret song? To know that whatever circumstances may seem to be, a snatch of melody can reassure us of undying love.

This song is absolutely true to my heart. I love every piece of Moulin Rouge. I watch it about twice a week. This song is about the love they share and like Christain said its to remind them of that love even when things get rough. No matter what they love each other and at the end of the day love is what gives us hope that tomorrow will be better.

53 Honestly Sincere - Bye Bye Birdie
54 Maybe This Time - Cabaret

Its so damn sweet, I can still their eyes in the dim light. Stunning

I have so much love for this song, it is really meaningful.

55 Don't Rain on My Parade - Funny Girl

I absolutely love this song! Barbra Streisand killed it!

Most epic musical song of ALL time

56 Maybe - Annie

I love this song because it has a good reason in the lyrics. It is all about dreaming and that one day it might come true. Also Annie is a wonderful hart warming film with humor and seriousness. It is a great film for all ages. WELL DONE! 10/10

I love maybe I was in annie and my friend was the lead so its really important to me it such a strong meaning its this girl with no hope and is asking for help

As a former orphan, I identified with this song as a little kid. You can really feel Annie's pain and longing for a mom and dad. Very emotional. - davidthenurse

Maybe far away. Or maybe real near by. This is what got me hooked on Broadway a long time ago. 8 year old girl dancing on the street singing this song while people look at her like shes going crazy... 😂😂
