He had it coming huh I still wonder what the uh uh one says

POP SIX SQUISH UH UH CISSERO LIPSCHITZ! I love this song. It's so kick butt and creepy and powerful and funny all at the same time. I love the chorus: He had it coming. He had it coming. He only had himself to blame. If you'dve been there. If youdve seen it. I bet ya you would have done the same

65 Rent - Rent

I wish this song was higher on this list. I listened to it 5 times in a row before I wrote this...

66 Let's Get Married - Sunshine on Leith
67 Roxie - Chicago

Great beat, catchy tune, hilarious lyrics, jazzy accompaniment- Oh, and did I mention that it's a blast to perform? It's Roxie's grand old ego-fest with a fun little dance routine to go with it. What's not to love?

68 Over & Done With - Sunshine on Leith V 1 Comment
69 Sky Takes the Soul - Sunshine on Leith
70 That's How You Know - Enchanted

This movie is so underrated. It's so good!

71 Stars - Les Miserables

It captures the determination of someone who is only doing what he thinks is write. how is this not in the top 15 at least!?

72 I Know Him So Well - Chess

I just love this song so much. Always makes me so emotional. This should definitely be high up on the list. I've never seen the show but I can still understand the context of the song and it's just beautiful.

73 Fame - Fame

I did this musical at my school. I got the role of Goody. I got such great memories from the musical! One of the best was when at the end of every show, we would belt out this song. It is pure genius.

74 Good Morning Baltimore - Hairspray
75 I Am So Proud - The Mikado
76 America - West Side Story

I love this song

Guys. The beat. The lyrics. The choreography. Have people really forgotten the great musicals of the 50s/60s?

77 You'll Be Back - Hamilton

I love Hamilton and the whole soundtrack!
