Top Ten Best Songs from Musicals

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

82 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.

83 Like No Man I've Ever Seen - Tarzan
84 Good Morning Baltimore - Hairspray
85 I Am So Proud - The Mikado
86 Secret of Survival - The Wind in the Willows

A very chilling villain song. "It's our secret of survival in this very nasty world. Now you see us, now you don't. Now you hear us, now you won't. "

The message in this song is actually true. Everyone's out for themselves and no one else.

87 Mijn Leven is van Mij - Elisabeth
88 Someone Else's Story - Chess
