Please put it higher! Heartbreaking, moving! This deserves to be in the top 20 at least. What a powerful performance!

Number 1 greatest musical song ever.

Historically the best ever

94 Be Our Guest - Beauty and the Beast (2017)

This is so catachy and bouncy! Definitely one of my favorites!

95 Epiphany - Sweeney Todd

Best song in the whole musical. I certainly think it should be in Tue top 50, in my opinion but that's just what I think. This was an amazingly written song and the way that the emotion comes out in this song is just delectable. I would love to see it sail to the you ten, it would make my life complete.

96 Joanna (Reprise) - Sweeney Todd

The movie rendition of this song sounds so nice. Really impressed by Johnny debs performance simply stunning if you ask me

97 America, F*** Yeah! - Team America

Perfect song to describe America - christangrant

This song from Team America World Police is so full of testosterone, gays will want to become straight and stay straight.

A beautiful, beautiful song. So lovely and sweet.
