122 My Friends - Sweeney Todd
123 One Song Glory - Rent V 1 Comment
124 La Resistance Lives On - South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

This is the best musical ever. all the songs are great

125 Edelweiss - The Sound of Music

It is one of my favorite musical songs.

I once enters a county talent show with this song, I got fourth place
4 out of about 500.

126 Bring Him Home - Les Miserables

A beautiful song about being willing to die in the place of a friend. I don't know what character sings this song, but I would give almost anything to have a friend who would do that for me.

This is no doubt the most difficult solo song from Les Mis... Takes so much control and understanding of the character. Don't know why it's so low

The best musical song in my opinion. Les mis is also my favorite musical

I cry whenever I hear this song!

127 The I Love You Song - The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
128 Who I'd Be - Shrek the Musical

Earlier in the story, Shrek compared ogres to onions, saying that both have layers. And that may be true, but only at "Who I'd Be" does Shrek metaphorically start to peel said layers. One layer at a time, we find out that Shrek is adventurous, thrill-seaking, and poetic. And at his center, all he wants is the happy ending that he knows he can't have. An absolutely beautiful and heart wrenching song that deserves to be on this countdown.

This song gives me chills every time. I'd say most underrated musical number ever written. People write this musical off as childish. But those who give it a chance walk away with a whole different perspective.

It's so emotional

129 Someone Like You - Jekyll and Hyde

Oh my gosh, whenever I listen to this song, my heart melts. So hopeful and tragic at the same time, utterly beautiful. When performed well, I don't know how anyone could resist this song's beauty.

130 You’re in the Band - School of Rock
131 Honey Honey - Mamma Mia

This is actually my favourite song from the musical! It's fun and upbeat and Amanda Seyfried sings it so beautifully!

132 The Ballad of Sweeney Todd - Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street
133 Life Support - Rent
134 Feed Me - Little Shop of Horrors

I love this song!

135 Master of the House - Les Miserables V 1 Comment
136 You Can't Win - The Wiz
137 Everyone has AIDS - Team America

Everyone has AIDS! Only the creators of South Park could ever get away with something like that.

This song is so catchy! The way he speaks the dialogue is so soulful it's funny.

138 Consider Yourself - Oliver
139 Town Meeting Song - The Nightmare Before Christmas
140 Your Daddy's Son - Ragtime

Such an emotional song. Top Ten Worthy
