Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Alexander Hamilton - Hamilton Alexander Hamilton - Hamilton

The song the entire cast sings at the beginning of the story about the main character after the main character is already dead. Is anyone else thinking The Ballad of Sweeney Todd?

Hamilton would've not been the King of Musicals without a song like Alexander Hamilton as well as the record breaking tony awards!

This song is an amazing way to start of an AMAZING musical! I love it so much!

I have seen Hamilton 2 times and met Lin-Manuel Miranda

42 Summer Nights - Grease 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

52 Don't Rain on My Parade - Funny Girl Don't Rain on My Parade - Funny Girl

I absolutely love this song! Barbra Streisand killed it!

53 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd - The Wall

This was an absolute great help to me. It was exactly what I was in search of. I'll definitely be coming back here. Thank you very very much.

This isn't higher because nobody searching for musicals knows what REAL music is. Best song of all time

54 Maybe - Annie 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 nearby
He maybe pouring her coffee
She maybe straightening his tie

55 Come What May - Moulin Rouge 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.

56 Singin' In the Rain - Singin' In the Rain Singin' In the Rain - Singin' In the Rain

This is the musical that my higschool is doing this year.
I'd never heard it before but I've apselutely fallen in love with this song

59 Let the Sunshine In - Hair
60 Do You Hear the People Sing? - Les Miserables Do You Hear the People Sing? - Les Miserables

This is like, the anthem to the French Revolution. Revolution in general. How is that not awesome?

It is a song you listen to when you want to get something done because of its power.

This is my anthem for my school to get rid of TN Ready. Do you hear the people sing, singing a song a angry men, it is the music of the kids who will not take this dumb test again...

How is this not rop 10? Come on, don't you all feel the passion of change and revolution once this plays?
