Not sure I have enough musical theatre people on my flist for this, but...

...why not?

Gacked from chicagoamy.

ONE: Pick 10 musicals.
TWO: Post them and see who can guess which song of each musical is your favorite.
THREE: Once someone guesses right, bold that row and include your favorite song.

ETA: I've added some hints.

1. Les Miz ~ "A Little Fall of Rain" (chicagoamy)
2. Miss Saigon (Hint: It's a duet, and it's a less well-known song.)
3. The Music Man ~ "Lida Rose/Will I Ever Tell You?" (markbrannan)
4. Jesus Christ Superstar ~ "Everything's All Right" (markbrannan)
5. Rent (Hint: It's a male solo.)
6. The Sound of Music ~ "The Sound of Music" (xray2000)
7/8. Sweeney Todd (this one is a tie between two songs) ~ "Joanna" and "Green Finch and Linnet Bird" (springdove)
9. Fiddler on the Roof ~ "Miracle of Miracles" (nessabutterfly)
10. Godspell ~ "By My Side" (markbrannan)

:) I tried to avoid using my own favorites when I guessed yours, but there was one of them that I couldn't resist naming. You happened to nail it. (That would be "A Little Fall of Rain").

As for the others, you weren't so lucky. Good guesses, though.

A little guess:

Jesus Christ Superstar: favourite song: Don't know how to love him

Hugs!

Jesus Christ Superstar: the main theme song: Jesus Christ Superstar who in the world do you think you are? (sorry don't know the real name of it)

Sound of Music: Again I think it's the main theme song: The hills are alive with the sound of music. (again I don't know the real name of it)

Nope.

The Music Man
I'm guessing either Marion or the march, forget it's name "76 trombones led the big parade..." (attribute it to old age)

Nah. I tend to like the slower, more romantic songs better than the big full company numbers. "Marion" is good, but not my favorite.

Godspell - on the willows?

On the willows, there We hung up our lyres
For our captors there Required Of us songs
And our tormentors mirth

On the willows, there We hung up our lyres
For our captors there Required
Of us songs And our tormentor's mirth
Saying Sing us one Of the songs of Zion
Sing us one Of the songs of Zion

But how can we sing?
Sing the Lord's songs?
In a foreign land?

On the willows, there We hung up our lyres...



--except that you also REALLY like By My Side...so now I'm not sure which you like better.

I'll take a guess on Miss Saigon: 'Why, God, Why'?

don't know that many...

and don't know if i'll get any right, which is a shame b/c i can remember you telling me your favorites from at least two of them in the last month or so.

3. Sincere
7/8. Green Finch and Linnet Bird, Johanna (or maybe Not While I'm Around?)
9. Sunrise, Sunset (?)

i took a shot anyway. i hope i at least got one of them right. it would show i was at least listening once. :)

Re: don't know that many...

3. No. :( I was counting on you to remember that I told you my favorite was cut from the Jr. version--and what it was like, at least, even if you couldn't remember the name.
But...you did remember my two favs from Sweeney Todd. :D
